Which Pico-Robertson Shuls Will Allow Seeing Eye Dogs?

A friend of mine is going blind. He’s waiting for a seeing-eye dog.

All the major shuls in Pico-Robertson do not allow seeing eye dogs into their sanctuary. They say the kids will go nuts over the dog and things will get out of control.

Mark emails: I believe Rabbi M. Feinstein has a Tashuva/Psak on allowing Seeing Eye dogs in Shul and Yeshiva Ohr Sameach has some information on it here http://ohr.edu/ask_db/ask_main.php/11/Q1/. Anshe Emet http://www.anshe.org/ has allowed one of has a visitor each year come with a seeing to Shul with a seeing eye dog on a regular basis.
