  1. My dog is so helpful for me, he calms me down when I’m anxious or melting down by going up and cuddling me. but he’s too excitable to be an ESA, and even though he does his physical things, he wasn’t trained he just picked them up.

  2. I have really bad anxiety and struggle with having conversations , singing and going to school could I get a emotional support animal or a service dog and if so which one as I am only 12

  3. This was very helpful. I’m trying to decide whether I need an ESA or a SD. Thankfully I’ll be setting up my first therapy appointment soon. I’m extremely worried with my anxiety and my heart. I may have BPD, but I’m not sure yet. I feel like having a ESA or SD will help me a lot.

    P.s. Love the Doctor Who picture in the background!!

  4. I work in a restaurant, and I have had a couple of people come inside the restaurant with their "Service Dog" and demand to be let inside. None of the dogs have had the service dog vest or lanyard or anything that would identify the dog they claimed were a service dog. In those situations, is it okay for me to ask for the dogs paperwork since it isn’t obvious at first glance that the dog is a service dog, or would that still not be okay?
    Would I still only have to ask what does the dog do to prove that the dog is indeed a service dog?
    I just don’t want to be wrong because for all those situations my boss has asked for some sort of identifications/paper works for the dogs because they didn’t have a vest or lanyard.
    In fact all of these cases. while the dog was indeed well trained and did not act up, they were not on a leash but just a tied up rope. One of which had to email the copy of the license to my boss, and another had an ID card with the dog’s name on it and what it did. Was my boss in the wrong?

  5. I got a lab that is supposed to be a emotional support dog 10 months old when she senses something in me she defiently reacts but she does other things like jump on you and chew on everything she has a handler and certificate not sure if these are fakes and can I change her name?

  7. Wow this was interesting, did you know that here in England you can take your dog on the bus or train, you have to ask about taxis (they are just normal dogs I’m on about) but clothe shops won’t allow them because they malt or food shops for hygiene. Had no idea about emotional support dogs existed. How about doing a vid for what qualifys you to have a service or emotional support dog, might benefit people who never thought they had the option. All the best

  8. Good grief! A new YT channel that discusses autism.
    Reminds me of that other channel that’s gone now… Oh, what was it called? "Maple Leaf Movies" or something?
