Service Animals, Emotional Support Animals, and Therapy Animals

Service Animals, Emotional Support Animals, and Therapy Animals

***EDIT***: I misread the 2010 revision to the ADA guidelines. Miniature horses with special provisions are also covered under the ADA guidelines.

What’s the difference between service animals, emotional support animals, and therapy animals? Do they really benefit our mental health and what’s with the controversy of allowing them into certain establishments? If mental health interests you, please subscribe!

  1. As an assistance dog user, thank you so much for this video. I’m from the uk so some of the information is different here (
    We don’t have esa’s, we have differences in legislation etc) but a lot of it is still the same. I think there’s a huge misunderstanding and ignorance about working animals and videos like this are really important to educate the public on them.

  2. My cat helps with emotional support, however he has no actual training or anything. I just find he helps me get up in the mornings when my depression makes me want to stay in bed and when I’m anxious, petting him calms me down much more quickly than I can do on my own.
