  1. Really Comes in Handy

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Feb 2014

    Most merchants are familiar with the laws regarding service dogs. Occasionally I run into someone who questions my right to have a dog in a building with me. The cards are a nice, non-confrontational way to educate people without offending them or causing a scene. It is something every service dog owner should have on hand.

    looks great, quality made.


  3. A Great Heads Up for anyone (even law enforcement)

    Posted by bob palaikis on 12th Apr 2013

    Believe it or not, with a vest,badges etc., there are STILL idiots who insist that the law does not apply to them. Therefore, the Service Dog cards do come in quite handy. If I am not in the mood to make a scene or find that I am talking to a walking vegetable; I will hand them the card and tell them to read it carefully. Next time I come back and am harrassed, you will be sued!

    These hand cards are great! They fit in my dogs vest which makes them readily available. Thanks for having them. :-)


  6. Stop harrassment

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jan 2013

    I have used these cards for years and find they are excellent "educational" tools for those people who really 'don't get it' or those who do NOT want to 'get it'. Provides credibility to the Service Dog/human handler team.

Product Description

This card is a simple tool for service dog owners to assist you when entering a business. These cards were designed to ease the burden of having to remember and relay federal guidelines which go along with owning a service dog.

On one side it says "I'm a Service Dog" and indicates that your dog is a Service Dog - an animal individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities. It has the toll free phone number to the U.S. Department of Justice should the business owner have any questions. On the flip side of the card is a summary of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it relates to Service Dogs. It outlines the questions businesses can ask and what they can't do.

When folded this card measures 3.5" x 2", the same size as a standard business card. You'll want to keep these tucked away in your service dog's vest.

 

It is fraudulent to represent your dog as a service animal if it is not. 
 
Here is some important information about service dogs:
 
Service Dog Definition: Only dogs are recognized as service animals under titles II and III of the ADA. Service Dogs are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. This definition does not affect or limit the broader definition of "assistance animal" under the Fair Housing Act or the broader definition of "service animal" under the Air Carrier Access Act. Some State and local laws also define service animal more broadly than the ADA does. Information about such laws can be obtained from the State attorney general's office, or one can visit the ADA website for relevant information about service dogs.
