I hope you realize that a Companion, Therapy, and Emotional Support Animals are not Service Dogs. All of these kinds of pets aren't aewlold public access under the ADA and the Rehab Act (Veterans).. We're having a problem nationwide that Veterans are having their doctors signing them off a dog to help w/ their PTSD, etc.. In fact if the dog dosen't have 2 yrs of extensive training then its not a Service Dog. My Service Dog has been attacked a couple times w/ so call ESA, Companion Dogs at the VA Hospital.. All of them stated that its their companion who makes me feel good.I hope that this VA Hospital understands that none of these dogs will be aewlold public access We have to stop these free companions for Vets before it gets out of hand.This is the newest from the ADA Mar 15,2011How “Service Animal” Is DefinedService 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, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.This definition does not affect or limit the broader definition of “assistance animal” under the Fair Housing Act or the broader definition of “service animal” under the Air Carrier Access Act.Some State and local laws also define service animal more broadly than the ADA does. Information about such laws can be obtained from the State attorney general’s office.
