FAQ

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, or calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack. Service animals are working animals. They are not pets. Further, the task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person's disability. A dog whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support does not qualify as service animals under the ADA. If you have an emotional support animal, please visit our website at esaregistration.org. To qualify for an emotional support animal a person must have a mental health professional determine that the presence of a dog provides therapeutic value to its owner.

No. Under the ADA service animals are limited to dogs and miniature horses.

According to the ADA if a person has a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability they may qualify for a service dog. The service dog certification process takes place when training the dog or miniature horse to make sure it can care for its owner's specific medical needs. There is also an additional training process that takes place between service animal and owner. When purchasing a service dog, the trainer might require personal references, agency referrals, and personal interview.

Service dogs must be well behaved and trained to be in public places and should be well acclimated around people and other dogs. A service dog can be trained to bark should their handler need assistance.

No. This site is not associated with any government agency. Its purpose is to educate the public and help service dog owners purchase supplies for their service dog.

A service animal is not a pet. They are a protected class of animal that do not have to abide by a business or landlord's no pet policies as long as they are well behaved.

Business are limited when it comes to the questions they can ask service dog owners. A business is ONLY allowed to ask the following two questions:

  1. Is your dog a service dog?
  2. What duties does he/she perform?

They may NOT ask what your disability is or anything else.

Businesses that do not follow the ADA laws are setting themselves up to a potential lawsuit. We recommend first writing a letter to the manager/owner of the establishment letting them know about your situation and try to resolve the matter in a quick and direct manner. In the worst case scenario, you can always find a lawyer that specializes in ADA cases.

Other than those reasons, the business may not ask you to just leave if your dog is not being a nuisance.
