Your advisor is an idiot.
It is aI believe the training of the dog rather than the equipment that
makes it a service animal.Also the fact that he-she is with you, the dog
doesn't wonder in by itself--lol
The schools will tell you this malarky about you should keep the harness on
at all times for legality's sake but as far as I have been able to
determine that's just being overcautious.
Wonder what the legal eagles on the list will say.
Yours most sincerely,

Wow not sure where the law comes in hear. But you probably do have an ID
card and if your dog came from the Eye (can't speak for other
schools) she likely has a tag on the collar with contact info. Sounds like
to me someone either is misinformed or is trying to make trouble for yall.
