Take Your Dog with you for Emotional Support

I always feel bad leaving my dog at home. IN the summer she is not allowed to go to the beach with us  Memorial day thru Labor Day. She can not go to most stores with us and most hotels don't want her. NOW, THAT IS CHANGING! I filed the paperwork and paid a small fee to have her deemed  an Emotional Support animal.  

Under US law an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is a pet which provides therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship and affection. Emotional Support Animals are not required to have any specialized training, 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.
There are two federal laws which grant special rights to owners of Emotional Support Animal:
  • The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 USC 3601, et seq.) allows you to live / stay anywhere you like without pet fees.  Any home, any lodging – even ones that specifically prohibit Dogs. 
  • The Air Carrier Access Act allows you to travel on any airline without paying any pet fees and your Emotional Support Animal is allowed to accompany you into the cabin.
