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

You hear some complain that they to sit near your dog at a restaurant that they don't believe can be a "real" service dog, varieties complain their neighbors use a pet in the "no pet" building because they claimed your pet is emotional support animal registration.

A number of the commentary comes with an indignant tone, and a few people are downright angry.

How can this affect those who legitimately own and employ a service animal to better their lives? In many ways.

For one, it can it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of your disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that some people are abusing the system, it can cause these to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business owners that make registrations services such as the Service Animal Registry of California so vital to legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues once the owner can create a simple document which will often match the owner or landlord. Also, when utilizing public spaces, it's easier to hand over a document having a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting the other party browse the information, instead of having a long-winded protracted conversation (or even worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering across the discussion.

So, do some people scam the device, or game what the law states? Sadly, the reply is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse the ones can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that individuals as a society applied to protect the rights of people who need such protection.

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

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