Emotional Dog Certification
The emotional dog certification is something that canines who are ESA’s can obtain for recognition of their status. Dogs are still the most popular type of animal among people who get ESA’s and getting the right certifications for them is often a top priority. Check Here to see if an ESA is right for you. There are three different types that you could get, and this will depend on what exactly you want to do. Not many people know this and think that there is just one which is the actual registration.
How Can I Get an Emotional Dog Certification?
There are three types of emotional support dog certifications that you can obtain, and they are all different depending on your needs. These are in relation to registering your canine as an ESA, getting a letter of approval for a rental property, and a letter of approval for air travel. All of these will require approval from a mental health professional, and we can also organize them for you too. Let’s take a look at each of the registries and what they entail.
The Letter of Approval
In order to get an ESA, you must first be approved for one by a mental health professional. If you have an emotional disability, one can assess your condition and see if getting an ESA would result in a significant improvement in at least one of your symptoms. If their judgment believes this to be true, they can then issue you with the approval letter. After this, you are free to go and get an emotional companion and then get them certified. This means that they will be registered and officially recognized as an emotional support animal.
Letter For Housing
This certification allows you to apply for rental properties with your dog. The landlord or property manager must make reasonable accommodation for you and can’t deny your application because you have an ESA. This is true even if there is a no pets policy on the property and you also can’t be charged for a pet deposit. You can’t be asked intimate details about your condition and they must accept the document as truth providing it can be verified. Basically, you can get around a pet policy because it has to be waived and you can’t be forced to pay any fees for your pet unless they cause damage to the property.
Letter For Air Travel
This letter will enable you and your dog to fly together on a plane. It will be signed by your MHP who will state that you are their patient and their evaluation of you has deemed that your canine flying with you is imperative for your health. The airline needs to accept this document and also can’t pry about the extent of your condition. You can provide them with advanced notice before you fly in case they wish to verify your letter, and they will also have to accommodate you and your dog. You may even get to sit together if they aren’t too big and don’t obstruct the aisle meaning that you can receive constant therapy throughout your travels, making for a worry free experience.
