What Is A Service Dog?

A service dog is a dog that has been trained to perform at least one task to help with the symptoms of a diagnosed disability. Service dogs are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and enjoy all the same rights as an ESA; additionally, service dogs are granted public access, which means they can go with you almost anywhere in public. This includes public transportation, like Ubers and buses, and they can even fly with you for free in an airline cabin without being in a carrier.

Service dogs can help those with almost any disability, including mobility issues, personality disorders, phobias, or PTSD. They can be trained to perform a wide variety of helpful or even life-saving tasks, including retrieving medication, calling for help, guiding their handler to an exit or safe space, stopping self-harming behaviors, or providing deep pressure therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any person with a diagnosed mental or emotional disability can qualify for an ESA. These disabilities can include depression, panic disorder, PTSD, OCD, autism, eating disorders, addictions, or mood or personality disorders.

To get an emotional support animal, you must be diagnosed with a mental or emotional disability by a licensed mental health professional in your state. Then, that same professional must write a valid prescription letter stating your need for an emotional support animal.

As long as your licensed mental health professional has diagnosed you with a mental or emotional disability, your pet can become an ESA as long as that same mental health professional agrees that they are medically necessary.

An ESA vest, ID, collar, leash, or tag is not legally required; all you need is a legally valid ESA letter. However, many handlers choose to have their ESA wear an identifying accessory in order to avoid questions from neighbors, repair people, etc.

The Fair Housing Act requires all housing providers to provide reasonable accommodations to those with disabilities. Because of this, most pet-free housing must allow an ESA to live with you, as it is generally considered a reasonable accommodation
