- Only an individual with a disability can have a service dog.
- A disability is a physical or mental condition that limits a major life activity.
- The dog must be trained to perform work or tasks specifically related to that person's disability. Just because you have a disability, it does not mean your pet is a service dog. Click here for more information.
