Dog + vest = service dog

A friend was telling me that he intends to get a service dog vest for his dog and start taking her everywhere. Apparently it's illegal for businesses to ask what the need for the dog is - they can only ask if it's a service animal - and there are no real standards. There are stores all over the internet, including Amazon, selling service animal gear. He doesn't have any service animal needs and his dog is a young hyperactive Pug who likes to bark at strange things (and seems really nearsighted) so I'm not sure how plausible this will be. But is this ethical? Or does it matter? Is it just a good way to get a dog more exercise and avoid "stupid and arbitrary rules" about dogs in public places?
