Currently only dogs are recognized as service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act. A service animal is a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. and rules and regulations regarding these dogs are described in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Dogs may also fall into the category of Therapy animal, Companion animal, or assisnce animal, but are not a covered under the ADA rules. Rules and requirements regarding assistance animal may be found in the Fair Housing Act.

Staff may ask two questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform.

Staff cannot ask about the person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.
