Real Service Dog ID Card Vs Fake

Real service dogs are specially trained to assist those living with disabilities such as blindness, deafness, diabetes or epilepsy by performing tasks to alleviate their condition or alleviate symptoms such as blindness. Their task-orientated service improves quality of life for handlers living independently while being allowed into all public places such as stores, restaurants hotels and airplanes. Unfortunately, as awareness about service dogs has grown so has the number of people misrepresenting their own pets as service animals; some states now prohibit using fake service dog ID cards on regular pets with penalties being levied against those caught using these methods imposed against those caught using ID cards on regular pets that cannot deliver benefits or services intended.

Falsely claiming a pet as a service animal impacts everyone involved. Not only can being denied entry hurt the handler, but fraudulent animals could force businesses to adopt stringent “no-animals” policies which go against the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

People who decide to pretend their pet is a service animal might do so because they want their animal with them on public outings – an understandable desire, but pet owners need to remember that just because a vest exists doesn’t guarantee they qualify as service animals.

Your dog must first undergo formal training by an American Disabilities Act-approved trainer and enroll in an official ADA class to become an official service animal. This ensures that he or she has been taught specific tasks or work, which is required under ADA regulations.
