    Absolutely.  I would take any animal except perhaps one that is soaking wet and muddy.  Otherwise, come on in!!!  I have leather seats so they're easy enough to clean if soiled, and a few dog hairs is  nothing a vacuum won't fix.

      You are a better man than I am.  I don't say no to dogs but I will admit, I do NOT enjoy them.  

      Well, here's a question for ya.  What if the animal is soaking wet and muddy?  I keep a beat-up blanket and towel in the back, and I have pulled it out a few times.  Most of the time, the passenger I appreciated it.  Praised me for being accommodating (and caring about their loved pets).  These were the apologetic ones as they got on the car.   Then there were few instances, they gave me the "you are weird" look and seemed disgusted that I offered.  Bleh.

        I'm thankful I haven't been faced with a soaking wet/muddy dog.  Mostly just some wet feet from walking through the grass.  I keep a towel under my seat which facilitates easy wipe down after they depart.  However, to answer your question, if a dog was soaked and/or filthy, I would ask the passenger secure a blanket or large towel explaning that I have to consider future passengers and that as much as I love dogs, I have no choice but to ask them to help me.  If they refused, I suppose I would say "well sorry, I guess this Uber isn't for you.  Please request a different Uber"... 

        I'm glad I haven't had to deal with that!!!

          Yeah, when to say "no" and canceling a ride is the toughest part of this job.

          The smell of wet dogs is a killer too.  I've got dinged on "bad smell" (Lyft's "how to improve comment), and I swear it's because I had a dog in my car on a busy (and of cours rainy) day.  I keep my car always fresh and clean.  always.  It stung when I saw that.  Grrr.

    First of all, I do not think Pitbulls are dangerous. Second, sure. I have a seat cover for dogs so it doesnt bother me much. Usually people are very appreciative when you take their dog too and youll get a nice tip.

      I only take bona fide service dogs.  "Is that a service animal?"  "What is it trained to do?"

      I'll take real service dogs.  All others are cancelled.

         Can dangerous breeds or pitbull ever be a service dog?  Let me rephrase. Are they commonly used as service dogs?

          I don't think so? but I knew a girl who got her hedgehog certified as a therapy animal so I guess anything is really possible...

    "Dangerous." 

     Well, now that you put it that way…  of course not. 

    You give me me a reason to say no, and I will give you a no.
