WHAT IS A SERVICE/ASSISTANCE DOG?

Assistance DogThe ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) defines a service animal as any animal individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability. This may include and is not limited to guide work, hearing work, pulling a wheel chair, retrieving dropped items, assisting a person with psychiatric disabilities. Programs, independent trainers, or the person with the disability who owns the dog trains Service animals. Most service animals are dogs. A service dog can be any breed or size.
