Service Dog Supplies
An emotional support animal (ESA) is a US legal term for a pet which provides therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship and affection. Emotional support animals are not specially trained to ameliorate disability as psychiatric service dogs are. They require only as much training as an ordinary pet requires in order to live peacefully among humans without being a nuisance or a danger to others. In the U.S., two federal laws grant special rights to some owners of emotional support animals.
The Air Carrier Access Act establishes a procedure for modifying pet policies on aircraft to permit a person with a disability (including emotional) and a letter from a physician to travel with a prescribed emotional support animal so long as they have appropriate documentation and the animal is not a danger to others and does not interfere with others (through unwanted attention, barking, inappropriate toileting, etc.).
The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 USC 3601, et seq.) establishes a procedure for modifying "no pets" policies in most types of housing to permit a person with a disability to keep a pet for emotional support. The qualified applicant may either make a verbal request, or send a written request of reasonable accommodation to the landlord, in either case with a letter from a physician. If the landlord refuses the request for accommodation, a complaint can be filed with the department of Housing and Urban Development or with the U.S. Department of Justice. In housing that allows pets but charges supplemental rent or deposits for them, these fees must be waived. The ESA's owner can be charged for actual damage done by the animal, but they may not require the applicant to pay a fee or a security deposit in order to keep the animal.
Emotional support animals do not have the right to go anywhere other animals are not allowed with the exception of the two examples above.
Don't have a photo of your dog or don't want a tag with a photo? Our new no-photo tags are perfect.
You get four Emotional Support Animal ID cards with your order, three for your companion and one for you to carry in your wallet so you can easily show others what the law says. These cards make it easy to educate the uninformed of your rights. Your Emotional Support Animal ID Tags clearly identify your companion as a Emotional Support Animal.
The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act protect the right of people with disabilities to keep emotional support animals, even when a landlord's or Association's policy explicitly prohibits pets. Because emotional support and service animals are not "pets," but rather are considered to be more like assistive aids such as wheelchairs, the law will generally require the Landlord or Association to make an exception to its "no pet" policy so that a tenant with a disability can fully use and enjoy his or her dwelling. In most housing complexes, so long as the tenant has a letter or prescription from an appropriate professional, such as a therapist or physician, and meets the definition of a person with a disability, he or she is entitled to a reasonable accommodation that would allow an emotional support animal in the apartment, condo or townhouse.
Whether you choose a tag, a vest or a bandana, a properly identified dog will receive less hassles than one without. We think tags are best because:
|Each ID tag has your dog's name and owner's name|
|Emotional Support Animal ID Tags are not as hot as vests|
|Unlike bandanas, tags look professional not cute|

Traveling with your Emotional Support Animal
All U.S. airlines are required to accept most emotional animals for carriage in the cabin for no additional cost (which can exceed $100 each way) and emotional support animals never travel in cargo. . In accordance with federal safety regulations, the animal must be positioned so as not to obstruct a passenger’s evacuation in the unlikely event of an emergency. To bring an emotional support animal into the cabin, passengers should expect to provide current documentation (not more than one year old) on a mental-health professional’s letterhead stating: (1) the passenger has a mental-health-related disability; (2) having the animal accompany the passenger is necessary to the passenger's mental health or treatment or to assist the passenger with his or her disability; and (3) that the individual providing the assessment of the passenger is a licensed mental-health professional and the passenger is under his or her professional care. Emotional support animals must be trained and behave properly within the airport and on the aircraft. Passengers traveling with an emotional support animal cannot sit in an emergency exit seat. Emotional Support Animal ID tags can help make your airline travel hassle free. Our customers have flown without confrontation on these airlines and many more...
