How to Make Your Dog a Service Dog

Our pets truly depend on us, and an increasing number of people have discovered that they depend on their dogs, cats, and other animals for help, too! We'll show you how to make your dog a service dog, and how quick and easy service dog registration is! We'll also show you how ESA registration can help you keep your dog, cat, or other animal for free in a "no-pet" apartment, house, or condo. Some dogs are trained to perform important tasks for us that we either can't — or have great difficulty performing for ourselves. If this is something your support dog does, then you can use NSAR's easy service dog registration process to legitimize your dog! Many of our dogs and cats calm our anxieties, lift our spirits, and help us function more normally on a day-to-day basis. They serve as emotional animals for us. You can formalize your pet as an emotional support animal by using our ESA registration process.

Psychiatric Service Dogs

Psychiatric Service Dog

A psychiatric Service Dog is simply a service dog for a person with a psychiatric impairment, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These dogs are individually trained in obedience, performing tasks, and working in distracting public environments to mitigate their handler's psychiatric disability. Their function is not to provide emotional support, but to perform tasks which enable their partner to function in ordinary ways the non-disabled take for granted.

Federally protected rights for Service Dogs (not ESA's):
  • With only a few exceptions, a disabled handler may take a service dog into any place a person without a dog would normally be allowed to go - even when pets are NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: restaurants, grocery stores, malls, theatres, buses, taxis, trains, airplanes, motels, government buildings, medical offices, hospitals, parks, beaches, amusement parks, churches, etc.
  • A Psychiatric Service Dog may fly in the cabin of a USA-based commercial airline with their disabled handler, and the handler may NOT be charged a pet or other fee.
  • Landlords and property managers must make reasonable accommodations for tenants or prospective tenants with service dogs, even if the apartment, house, college dorm, or other residence does not allow pets. A tenant with a service dog may NOT be charged a pet-fee of any kind, even if pet fees are normally required.
  • Public entities may NOT charge the disabled handler a fee because of their service dog.

Public entities may NOT position or seat the handler and service dog away from other patrons to intentionally separate them

The following is a list of possible tasks for a PSA:

  • Guide a disoriented handler. Example: A person wanders away from familiar surroundings during a dissociative episode. When she becomes aware again, she realizes she is lost and still disoriented from the episode. She cannot think clearly about how to retrace her steps. Her dog is trained to backtrack, following their own scent trail back to where they were when the episode started. Alternatively, the dog might be trained to guide the handler to specific trained locations by command, such as "home."
  • Find a person or place. Example: A person becomes separated from his family in a crowd. As the crowd closes in around him, he experiences a panic attack and difficulty breathing. He cannot call out to his family. He gives his dog a signal to locate his family who will help him, or to locate an exit where he can escape the crowd and get fresh air.
  • Room search. Example: A person with severe hypervigilance due to PTSD finds she is unable to enter her own home. Her symptom causes her to believe there is an intruder in her home who will attack her if she enters. Her dog is trained to perform a systematic search of any room or building and bark on finding someone. When her dog finishes the search pattern and returns, she knows it really is safe to enter and that the presumed intruder was just a symptom. The same task can be used at her office, at hotel rooms, at friends' homes or any other area that is supposed to be vacant.
  • Signal for certain sounds. Example: A person heavily sedated, in a flashback, or in a psychotic episode fails to respond to a smoke alarm. His dog is trained to persistently and very firmly signal him until he responds. Alternately, the dog may be trained to take hold of his handler's arm or sleeve in his mouth and lead him outside.
  • Interrupt and redirect. Example: A person with OCD subconsciously picks at the skin on her arm. She has done this with such persistence that she has scaring. Her dog is trained to recognize picking skin as a cue to bring her a dog brush. Because she is not picking intentionally, the interruption of the dog will stop her from picking. Handing her the brush is a reminder to her that grooming the dog is a non-harmful alternative behavior for her OCD symptom.
  • Balance assistance. Example: A person overwhelmed with anxiety has taken a strong prescribed tranquilizer. While the tranquilizer reduces his anxiety, allowing him to breathe more efficiently and to think a little more clearly, it has also impaired his ability to walk without assistance. His dog is trained to walk close at his side so he can rest his hand on the dog's harness to help him keep his balance as he moves to a safe place to finish recovering from his attack.
