What is a Service Dog?

According to the American Disabilities Act (federal) any dog assisting a person with a disability is considered a service dog. A Service Dog (companion dog) and its handler enjoys special protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which gives them equal access to anywhere the general public is allowed, such as restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, taxis, and aircraft, as
well as providing protection for handlers living in places "pets" are not generally allowed. Your "
canine helper" is moments away from becoming a Certified Service Dog through Service Dog Certification of America!


Properly Identifying your Service Animal- Testimonials

Thank you for your assistance with certification of VJARRA. Here in California, the recognition of a Service Dog is greatly enhanced by the visual presence of a SERVICE DOG emblem/patch over and above the dog tag. Very few individuals would approach a full grown German Shepherd to "inspect"
the collar ID. And, with the Service Dog patch, the ID is readily available from a distance. This visibility usually eliminates the majority of "challenges" that might otherwise be presented. I encourage any Service Dog owner to utilize any and all "visual aids" that are available.

Qualify My Dog

In Short: A well-behaved Service dog is unobtrusive, realizes that you are in control, and as a team you do not pose a public threat.

Dismissal:
The Americans with Disabilities Act enables people with physical and psychological needs the relief they require through the use of Service Dogs by assisting them with their daily activities. A well-behaved Service dog is unobtrusive, realizes that you are in control, and as a team you do not pose a public threat. Any dog that displays bad behavior, acts aggressively (growling, biting, showing teeth) may not be considered  and will not qualify as a Service Dog. Even a well trained Service Dog is not perfect. If your dog exhibits occasional nipping, Service Dog Certification of America recommends muzzling.

Commands: Commands may be administered to your Service Dog using verbal orders, hand signals or a combination of the two.

Vehicle Unloading:  The dog must remain calm and under control while departing the vehicle. He/ she must wait until released before exiting. Once out of the vehicle the dog must wait quietly until such time as you command, while under no circumstances should the dog be off lead. A quick and efficient exit will ensure your canine helpers safety.

Approaching a Structure: The dog must remain in a heel position* at all times. Traffic, loud noises and other distractions should not gain the attention of the dog. As a team you should project a relaxed attitude.

Controlled Entry Though a Opening: The dog must remain in a heel position at all times. Soliciting of attention should not be tolerated.

Command Obedience: The dog must be obedient to your commands i.e.: sit, come, stay, lay, heel, etc.

Noise Distraction: The dog may acknowledge noise, but in no way should the dog show aggression or fear. Some reaction is normal however; a properly trained Service Dog once commanded, should not cower, shake, or act as though they are unable to preform their usual duties.

Restaurant Conduct: While seated the dog should sit under the table if permissible. If not, as close as possible will suffice. Dropped food retrieval should not be permitted under any circumstances.

Off Lead Retrieval: If lead is dropped at any time the dog must remain in the heel position, unless otherwise commanded.

Load into Vehicle: Load into vehicle should be conducted quickly and efficiently with either the dog or the handler entering first. The dog must not wander but patiently wait for instructions. The dogs safety is always the main concern when walking to or from your vehicle in a parking lot, necessitating command obedience.  


 *heel position -  when you are standing still or walking , the neck/shoulder region of the forward-facing dog is lined up with your right 
   or left leg, and close alongside you.
