Service dogs are becoming increasingly common, as are untrained dogs whose owners want to bring their dogs with them. And the problem is only getting worse. This presents pitfalls and problems for business owners. Does the responsible business owner put up with misbehaving and possibly dangers animals or does she risk liability under the Americans with Disabilities Act for denying access to a legitimate service dog/handler team? We will discuss the federal laws governing service dogs and service dog access, as well as the differences between service dogs and emotional support animals.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

•  Federal law governing service dogs and service dog access
•  What are service dogs and emotional support animals
•  Where service dogs can go and where they can be prohibited
•  How to identify a legitimate service dog
•  When a business owner can ask a disabled handler to remove his service dog from the premises
