ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SERVICE DOG? THERAPY DOG? EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOG?

There are many misconceptions about what people feel they need. Before you browse our site let us help clarify.

SERVICE DOG: THIS IS A DOG THAT IS INDIVIDUALLY TRAINED TO PREFORM TASKS TO HELP MITIGATE A PERSONS DISABILITY. THESE DOGS HAVE FULL PUBLIC ACCESS ( THERE ARE A FEW EXCEPTIONS) AND NO ADDITIONAL FEES, DEPOSITS OR CHARGES MAY BE ASSESSED FOR HAVING A SERVICE DOG. YOU CAN HAVE A SERVICE DOG IN HOUSING AND PLACES THAT HAVE NO PET POLICIES IN PLACE. TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS USE THE DROP DOWN TAB FOR THE ADA LAW.

THERAPY DOG: A DOG THAT HAS BEEN SPECIALLY TRAINED TO PROVIDE EMOTIONAL ASSISTANCE TO PEOPLE IN HOSPITALS, NURSING HOMES, AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS.  THERAPY DOGS HAVE LIMITED PUBLIC ACCESS. THEY ARE ALLOWED IN THE VENUES THEY PROVIDE THERAPY AND TO TRAVEL ON PLANES TO APPROVED DISASTER SITES.

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOG: AN EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOG IS A DOG THAT BRINGS COMFORT TO AN INDIVIDUAL. THESE DOGS NO LONGER HAVE PUBLIC ACCESS BUT ARE HOWEVER COVERED UNDER THE AMERICAN FAIR HOUSING ACT. PLEASE SEE OUR DROP DOWN TAB FOR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS IN HOUSING.
