Psychiatric Service Animal - May 21st 2018, 03:23 AM

Hello, I was wondering how many people here have a psychiatric service animal? I'm going to get one through a program that I have worked with in the past. (I mentioned washing my old dog due to him displaying signs of aggression.) He's going to learn deep pressure therapy, guide to exit, hallucination discernment, block, cover, and some other things. What should I expect? How should I address the two public access questions? I'm very nervous all the time, especially when people confront me.

Fading away, turning to dust.

Hey there,

I do not have a service dog but I have looked into it. I do not know that I can answer all the questions that you have. I do know that businesses only have the right to ask you two questions and that is it. In regards to how to answer them just be truthful. Let them know it's a service dog etc. If they try and argue with you, you have the right to let them know you will be filing a complaint. I don't think that many businesses will argue or be rude about it. I have seen people bring service dogs into establishments and no one tends to care that much. I know it still might be nerve wracking but you deserve to have that service dog.

In regards to what to expect, there are different ways that they go about training service dogs. I know that a training company here has the person who will be utilizing the dog work on most of the training. They help them and provide them with the tips and tools to train them. One of the the reasons I have not gotten a service dog is I would be unable to attend the training as the place I've found is quite a ways away.

I apologize for not being able to provide a more thorough response but I didn't want this to go without any response.

Best regards.
