Service Dog Law/Commands

Service Dogs are dogs that are trained and placed with people who have disabilities.

 

Service Dog is defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act as "any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including but not limited to guiding indiviuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items."Service dogs must be allowed to go anywhere their handler goes, including resturants, schools, buses, taxis, airplanes, stores, movie theaters, concerts, sporting events, doctors offices, and any other public place. It is REQUIRED under federal and state laws that they are allowed. They do not have to wear specific identifying gear, including vests. Many service dog users choose to dress their dogs in a vest or other identifying apparel in order to make access easier, as it avoids many questions and confrontations. It is illegal to ask for any special identification from Service Dog partners. Some carry ID cards, and may present them voluntarily, but this also is not required, and should not be expected. You may NOT ask for "proof" or certification or the dog's training as a condition of entry into your business.
