Although not a requirement, a Service Dog ID badge gives your service dog instant credibility by clearly stating that your dog is a service dog. The Department of Transportation lists service dog identification cards at the top of their list and only verbal assurance is at the bottom. Service Dog ID badges can dramatically speed up your process of getting through airport security, entering stores etc. without arguments or confrontations.

Many owners of service dogs have reported that the airlines have required some sort of identification even though by law they are not allowed to do this.

– Our Service Dog ID cards are the size and thickness of a standard credit card and are very durable. They are not cheap laminated pieces of paper.

– Our ID badges feature your service dogs photo, ID number (if applicable) and pertinent service dog handler information.

– All of our service dog ID badges have The United States Federal Laws on the back, including the United States Department of Justice’s phone number should business owners or employees have further questions about your service dogs in their place of business.

* Carriers shall accept as evidence that an animal is a service animal. Identifiers are classified as identification cards, other written documentation, presence of harnesses, ID tags or the credible verbal assurances of a qualified individual with a disability using the animal.

Many landlords and business owners request to see registration paperwork or other identification and even though such paperwork is not required under law, it is often easier to provide the requester with a registration document or ID rather than argue the point or attempt to educate the person.

Emotional support dogs are protected under federal law Under the Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA) and the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), protects an individual who is entitled to an emotional support dog to assist them with their life.

The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 USC 3601, et seq.) prevents landlords and home owner associations from restricting your Emotional Support Animal from living with you.(even when there is a no pet policy in place) They are also not allowed to access special pet fees on you because of your pet.

The ACAA protects individuals by allowing the emotional support dog to fly with them in the cabin of an airplane (without having to pay any additional fees).

Any size or breed of dog can be an emotional support or service dog, emotional support dogs do not have to be professionally-trained to perform any task.
