I wanted to share a great resource for information about therapy dogs. There are several tabs at the top of the page so you can navigate around and get more information. This particular link (http://www.therapydoginfo.net/servicedogs.html) explains about the difference between service dogs, emotional support dogs, and therapy dogs. It's the most thorough explanation I've found so far. Bottom line, service dogs and emotional support dogs are trained to support someone with a physical or mental disability. I also wanted to share this essay, " The Hidden Complications of Fake Service Dogs" (http://www.anythingpawsable.com/fake-service-dog-complications/#.VJIsAyvF-Sp) Please don't even consider "making" your dog into a service dog unless you really need one. You might wish you could take your dog everywhere, but you don't really wish you had a disability that required it.
