Interesting story and just sharing what info I found regarding this subject - according to the us service dog registry, no business or public place is allowed to ask the nature of the disability or the service animal's proof of license/certification. The disabled person is instructed not to answer these questions and in addition to physical disabilities, persons with emotional disabilities can qualify. Individuals with service animals cannot be denied by law service or entry Into an establishment. However, if the animal is not housebroken or is being disruptive, the owner can be asked to remove the animal. While the age requirements for the animal is broad, many companies that certify service animals require age of one year and 6 to 18 months of training. While there are not required identity collars for the animal, there are special Identity collars that can be worn.

Basically, since the service animal is not defined as a pet but rather assists the disabled persona with daily activities, no business can refuse entry under the ADA guidelines. So wether it is wal-mart or k-mart, it would have been handled the same way. My personal opinion is this guy was probably just saying that since service animals are supposed to be well-behaved and puppies generally are not.
