Training Programs for Service Animals at Beyond the Dog

It’s not uncommon for people to mix up service dogs and emotional support animals. However, the duties of these two animals are quite different. Although both are able to aid their owners, they do this in different ways, and the tasks these animals carry out differ. With that in mind, it’s essential you enroll your support animal in the right course to ensure it can complete its duties to the best of its abilities.

What is the Difference between Service Dog and Emotional Support Animals?

Service dogs help their owners carry out tasks that would be seemingly impossible for them to tackle on their own. Moreover, these dogs are trained to perform a range of duties such as aiding in mobility. These animals are given protection under the American for Disabilities ACT (ADA). Consequently, service dogs are able to visit places where pets are typically not allowed. This can include shopping malls and other public spaces.

On the other hand, emotional support animals don’t have these same rights as they don’t receive the same level of training as service dogs. Instead, these animals are typically there to be a calming presence for their owners in high-stress and anxiety-inducing situations.
