Service Animal Benefits

Service dogs are highly trained animals that are specifically trained to assist people with disabilities. They are granted special access to public spaces and are allowed to accompany their owners wherever they go, including on public transportation, in restaurants, and in other areas where pets are not typically allowed.

This is because service dogs play a vital role in helping their owners navigate their daily lives and perform tasks that they would otherwise struggle to complete on their own. As such, service dogs are protected under various laws that ensure they are treated fairly and have the access they need to perform their duties.

However, it's important to note that while service dogs are granted special access, they are also held to a high standard of behavior and training, and owners are responsible for ensuring that their dogs are well-behaved and properly cared for at all times

Emotional Support Animal Benefits

1. **Accommodation Rights**: ESA registration can provide legal recognition and protection for individuals with mental health conditions under laws such as the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). This means landlords and airlines are required to make reasonable accommodations for ESAs, such as allowing them in housing units or on flights, even in no-pet policies.

2. **Reduced Housing Fees**: Many landlords or housing providers typically charge additional pet fees or pet deposits for tenants with pets. However, with proper ESA documentation, these fees may be waived, as ESAs are not considered pets but rather support animals necessary for the individual's mental well-being.

3. **No Breed or Size Restrictions**: Unlike service animals, which are trained to perform specific tasks for individuals with disabilities, ESAs do not require specific training. Therefore, they are not subject to breed or size restrictions, allowing individuals to choose the animal that best suits their needs and preferences.

It's important to note that USSA Registry provides the proper documentation from a licensed mental health professional stating the need for an ESA can help individuals assert their rights and access accommodations in housing and transportation settings.
