How It Works

Complete Online Exam

All individuals seeking an Emotional Support Animal prescription must complete an online medical examination consisting of 74 questions. It takes anywhere from 15 – 20 minutes to complete so please make sure that you are ready to fill it out and move forward, since you won't be able to save your exam and come back to it later. You can begin the exam by clicking on the “online medical exam”tab located in the main navigation menu or by clicking the “get started now” tab below.

Make Payment

Potential patients should keep in mind that if the evaluating medical doctor does not feel comfortable writing you a prescription for an emotional support animal, then you will receive a same-day refund. Refunds are granted only to those who are not approved by the evaluating physician. After completing your online exam you will be required to make a payment and choose a treatment plan that best applies to you. If you need an ESA letter for housing, please choose the housing plan. The entry level housing plan is called the “care plan” and is 159.00. If you need a letter only for travel, then please choose the travel plan for 149.00. If you need documentation for both, you will need to select the Compassion Plan for 199.00, which will cover both travel and housing. Regardless, you must submit payment at that time or your exam will not be processed.

The DOGtor Reviews Your Exam

The Dogtor reviews your exam & you'll receive a notification within 48 hours if approved or not. Approval is typically the same day on a normal work week. In the event that the Dogtor needs to do a further evaluation he may want to speak to you over Skype. However, it's very rare.

You've Been Approved!

All individuals who have submitted an online exam will hear back from the evaluating physician within 24-48 hours. The doctor will email you from this or her personal email address to the email address that you have on file, so please make sure to check spam folders and wait patiently for the correspondence from the M.D. A doctor may ask you more questions about your exam so please be prepared to provide further details if they want more info in order for them to make an informed decision. Usually these questions are about asking for more clarity or that you have been vague in answering a specific question. As stated in Step 3, if the doctor does not approve you, you will receive a same-day refund. However, in the event that you are approved, you will receive your emailed PDF copy of the prescription letter typically on the same day. You will also receive a courtesy hard copy that will be mailed to the address that you have on file when taking the online exam. The hard copy take a few business days to arrive, depending on where you are located in the USA.

Emotional Support Dog For Sale

If you’re interested in emotional support dogs for sale, then we may be able to organize something for you. ESA’s are becoming a popular choice among people with certain disabilities and dogs are the most common animal. Each year in America, many people try to get an ESA and decide to choose a dog for their needs. Unfortunately, there is often a cloud of misinformation going around in regards to what types of dogs can be used for these purposes and if they require any form of training. Luckily for you, we are able to let you know all about these animals and how you can go about buying one including what breeds are recommended and how to register them once you have one.

Getting an Emotional Support Dog

First of all, in order to get a canine for this purpose, you must have a verifiable disability. If you don’t, you will legally not be able to register an ESA. Your disability could be psychological or mental, and can even include anxiety, insomnia, depression, and stress. You must be assessed by a licensed mental health professional who will deem if getting an ESA is the right option for you. If they conclude that getting one would significantly help in improving one or more of your disabilities symptoms, you will be issued with a letter of approval.

Knowing Your Rights

Once you are approved to get an ESA, but before getting one, you should know the rights that you and your animal are entitled to. These dogs are not considered to be service dogs, which means that they can’t accompany you into public settings such as shops, restaurants, and public transit. With a certificate, however, they can accompany you onto a commercial airliner and possibly sit in the cabin with you. They can also come and live with you in a rented property, providing you get a separate certificate for that too. There are clear laws which are set to protect ESA owners and their animals, but there is a distinguishable difference between an ESA and a service animal.

How Can I Buy an Emotional Support Dog?

Any dog can be used for these purposes, and there is no restriction as to what size or breed is allowed. So long as the canine is socially mannered, well-behaved, and in your complete control, they could be approved to be used for this purpose. If you are unsure about which breeds are best suited to be used for this, then you are more than welcome to contact us and have a chat about your situation, we will always be able to help you decide what breed would be good for you. We have years of experience in this industry and know very well what dog breeds are suited to different kinds of disabilities or health conditions. Whether you are looking at a Poodle in Pennsylvania, a Corgi in Colorado or a Cavalier King Charles in California we will be able to make sure you get the right dog to suit your needs.
We can even arrange for the dog and organize all the appropriate documentation for it including the letters of approval for a residential tenancy application or for taking them on a flight. This can take a real burden off your shoulders and allow you to relax while knowing that everything is being taken care of for you. So, if you are still interested in emotional support dogs for sale, contact us today, and we will be happy to let you know how you can get one.
