Sadly, some individuals are asking whether "service animal" laws are being abused by those who want to scam the device.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces and other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they to sit near your dog at a restaurant that they don't believe is a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain that the neighbors use a pet in a "no pet" building since they claimed the pet is esa letter.

Some of the commentary has an indignant tone, and some people are downright angry.

So how exactly does this affect people who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to raised their lives? In lots of ways.

For one, it may it harder to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of your disability and your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If your landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that some people are abusing the machine, it can cause them to look suspiciously whatsoever claimants.

Some landlord and business people have begun seeking proof of status, even though asking for written or another evidence is not always legal, and even though many owners of legitimate service animals and emotional support animals haven't taken advantage of registering them, and therefore have no such documentation to make.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business people that make registrations services just like the Service Animal Registry of California so important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues when the owner can certainly produce a simple document which will often match the owner or landlord. Also, when utilizing public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document having a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting the other party see the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the device, or game regulations? Sadly, the reply is "probably yes." In everyday life, there is always room for abuse and individuals can try to take advantage of many systems that individuals as a society set up to protect the rights of people who need such protection. For instance, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. Not to mention the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse shop return policies, or do other bad acts.

However that percentage of abuse, which in service animal laws is hopefully small, could well be a very small investment when compared to the higher objective of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you cannot control any system making it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the not enough people who scam service animal laws may be the price we gladly pay to ensure that the disabled in the great condition of California have equal access under law.
