What is a Service Dog?
The term "Service Dog" encompasses a broad range of assistance animals that have been trained to assist their handlers with physical, or psychiatric disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public and privately owned establishements serving the public, such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, taxicabs, airplanes, theaters, concert halls, and sports facilities, to allow people with disabilities to bring their service animals onto business premises in whatever areas customers are generally allowed.
SDC recognizes that every person
in America may have some form of disability.
Most persons rely on their dog to assist them in many different ways. Ensure your dog will be allowed to accompany you where ever you need to go by properly identifying him/her as a service dog with an indentification kit provided by Service Dogs America.
Service Dogs Canada can assist you in your
desire to have your animal identified as a service dog.
