Service dog "within training" - assist?
First off, I want everyone to know that this is a last resort and would not be doing this otherwise and would not be doing it again in the adjectives.
I'm going to Vegas in January for a softball tournament (weekend trip). Our dog will be coming with us to the softball fields. The with the sole purpose problem that we're having is a finding a hotel that permits dogs. This is where the request for information comes in.
I found a site where I can get a service dog vest and patch and a patch that say "in training". If I were to pass him bad as a legit Service Dog, what else is needed? Would a hotel be asking for any kind of paperwork or anything?
Again, this is a last resort and we do not feel past the worst staying in a Motel 6 (that do permit dogs). His usual dog-sitter is coming with us, and we will NOT board him.
Ideas, suggestions... ?
No one can ask for paperwork or any sort of proof. All they can do is ask what the dog is trained to do.
Add: Call AAA, they may also be able to give you some listings.
Is this for a Boston Terrier?
I am index many pet friendly hotels near or in Las Vegas.
I enjoy a Boston Terrier too and she will never be boarded.
There's bound to be one available. In addition try Fellini's.

Unless you are classified as disabled under the ADA, or are recognized as a legitimate trainer, you are breaking the directive. You can be civilly and criminally prosecuted, fined and jailed for misrepresenting yourself as either a disabled individual or as a properly qualified trainer;or misrepresenting your mutt as a service dog in training. That is a high price to reimburse for your selfishness.
Do everyone who has a real service dog a favor, and at lowest possible not try to pass off your mongrel as a service dog in training. It does a large amount of damage to those who truly need to have a service dog next to them, and the raisers and trainers who take their time and knowledge to provide this advisable resource.
Every time someone like you passes off their little "Boopsie" as a service dog (or service dog within training) in order to selfishly gain public access, it makes it that much harder for folks who own REAL disabilities and REAL service dogs to travel and do their daily life activities minus getting the "third degree" questioning from every place they need to go.
I cant report you how many times my wife has been question about her Guide Dog and her blindness when we go places, because of the bad drink left in the mouths of businesses from someone misrepresenting their precious little "Snookums" as a service dog, and having have that dog destroy merchandise or property, cause disruptions, and mess on the floor.
Your selfishness, arrogance and ignorance is appalling. But you can still redeem yourself by not perpetuate the fraud you describe. Leave the dog at home, or properly board it at a kennel. Do not dishonor the real service dog community by moving forward with your lies and deciet. In the long run, its better for you, better for your dog, and better for those who use true service dogs.

I don't pass a damn if it is a "last resort," that doesn't make it right.
In some states you can win a hefty fine and jail time for doing what you propose and I can only hope you are one of the ones they catch at it.
You choose to capture a dog. Now you choose either to board him or to stay at home, not to lie steal and cheat while trampling disabled populace in your selfish wake.
I can get that you don't want to board him. I don't board my dogs either. You do have other options.
1. You can stay at motel 6
2. You can own your "pet sitter" stay in your home with your dog
3. You can hire a licensed and bonded pet sitting service.
4. You can rent a motor domestic and take your dog with you.
5. Continue your search for other pet friendly hotels.
