Therapy Dog as an Emotional Support Animal
The purpose of certifying a Therapy Dog, which are commonly known as Emotional Support Animals, is to foster the special bond between a person and their dog and make their bond even stronger. At TheraPetic, our goal is to improve the lives of people and their furry companions by supporting you and your dog as a Therapy Dog or also called an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) by helping you live and travel with peace of mind by providing instant and unlimited certified documentation by a licensed clinician or doctor.

What exactly are the Differences between Service, Emotional Support, and Therapy Animals?
Many people commonly confuse or interchangeably misuse the terms service animal, emotional support animal, assistance animal, and a therapy or psychiatric animal. The key to understanding these differences pertains to three important U.S. federal laws: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), and Fair Housing Act (FHA).
What is a Service Dog?
Service Animal is defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as “dogs or miniature horses that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities” (Section 504, Department of Justice summary of service animals based on their 2010 updates to the ADA regulations). Click here for more frequently asked questions pertaining to service animal and the ADA law.
What is an Assistance Animal?
Assistance Animal is defined by the Fair Housing Act (FHA) as “an animal that works, provides assistance, or performs tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability, or provides emotional support that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person’s disability” (FHEO Notice 2013-01). Thus an assistance animal is the general term for either a service animal or an emotional support animal.
What is a Therapy Animal?
Therapy Animal is commonly defined as an animal, usually a dog/canine, that may be formally trained to provide comfort to individuals in schools, hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, etc. None of the three laws already mentioned apply to a therapy animal.
