Blind woman says she was denied entry to Chuck E. Cheese over service dog

From CTV - November 14, 2017

A Saskatchewan woman says she was kicked out of a Chuck E. Cheese location in Regina because she uses a service dog.

Ashley Nemeth, who is blind, visited Chuck E. Cheese on Monday night with her husband and two sons as a reward for her kids good behavior.

We were going to let them play some games and just have a little bit of fun but that didnt happen, Nemeth said.

Instead, according to Nemeth, a manager asked her to leave, citing a strict no pets policy.

He called his manager and his manager actually gave him the same response, which I was surprised by, she said. I thought somebody has to know that this isnt right.

Nemeth relies on her service dog, Rick, to help her with everyday tasks. She says she has never been turned away from anywhere before.

She recorded video of the alleged incident and posted it to Facebook. In it, a man can be heard saying this store doesnt allow any pets. The video has since been viewed more than 37,000 times.
