The Growling Hearing Ear Dog

Q. Our question concerns a misbehaving "hearing ear dog." We have a recent resident at our facility whose dog is misbehaving in our dining room. She is not keeping it under control. At a recent meal, it stuck its nose in our salad cart and we had to replace all of the salads. More recently, it has been barking and growling at other residents. In addition, a visitor to the facility left the dining room after the dog growled menacingly at him. The resident has indicated that she is presently suing a restaurant in the area over issues regarding this dog so we want to proceed with caution as she is apparently litigious. We are getting quite a few complaints regarding this animal. What can we do?
