Service dogs, also known as assistance dogs, are necessary for the lives of people with disabilities. They undergo training to help their owners perform daily tasks like opening a door, retrieving an item, pulling a wheelchair, or reminding their owners to take prescribed medication. These intelligent animals assist people with various disabilities, from diabetes to autism or epilepsy.
Service animals bring unlimited help, care, and companionship into the lives of the owners who train and care for them. It only makes sense to make life easier for them by registering the animal in your state.
Finding an apartment is much easier with a service animal than with a regular pet.
That’s because service animals are considered assistance animals that perform specific tasks or provide emotional support for their disabled owners.
Since the 1920s, the service dog has helped aid people with disabilities. But it’s only recently that the public has begun to realize the tremendous benefits dogs can have for our physical and mental health. It has led to a surge in people bringing their pets in public.
The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was and still is a historic piece of legislation that impacts any person with a disability and even the non-disabled people in their lives. However, not many people understand the full scope of this life-changing law.
