When my brother rescued Libby as a puppy and brought her home, my dad tried to return her to her previous owners four times. After that, he gave up and my brother trained her up to be the perfect dog. That’s how she became our nanny dog. She followed my sister and I everywhere, matched our every step and never took her eyes off of us. We ventured everywhere outside as kids, and wherever we went, Libby dutifully followed. When my mom called her back home, she would look between my sister and I and my mom, completely torn. She knew she had to listen to mom, but how could she leave the kids out by themselves?

Many people have lingering questions about service dogs and emotional support animals (ESA). I will address those questions first by explaining the differences between them. A service dog is a dog that is trained to complete tasks and alerts to help a person or handlers that is disabled. An emotional support animal (ESA) is just an animal that gives comfort to a person, with just the presence of the animal. The issue with today is that people are getting mixed up with public access between the two. Service dogs have to ability to go almost every place that the handler can go. There are only a few exceptions like churches, synagogues, kitchens where food is being prepared, sterile rooms and more that they can not go. This is because it is unsafe for the dog and potentially the handler. ESAs are only able to have access with housing in places that would normally not allow pets, travel help like hotels, and even flying. ESAs do not have the training in order to be allowed to have public access and there is no real reason to have them in public. All they are there for is to give comfort to the owner they do not complete tasks to help the owner. When someone brings an ESA into public it can harm actual service teams and do more damage than good. There are many different types of services dogs that complete different tasks for their handler. This can be anywhere from guiding their handler that is blind to alerting them that they are going to have a panic attack. Service dogs give the disabled a way to gain back their independence.
