Faking a SD

So someone I know made a comment about getting a vest for a friend's dog off the internet so the dog could be taken places.

I of course told them this was a huge issue with me but I wasn't sure what the actual legal ramifications (sp) are if a person is caught.

Can someone point me in the direction of some easy to understand legalalities that I can send on?


Thanks a million!!

Re: Faking a SD

Here barb I found this.

If my breathing trouble continues after my surgery then I am thinking of seeing about getting Hella my GSD Certified as a SD.

Re: Faking a SD

I think that is not a real organization. Just a money making web site where people like the person Barb was talking to coulg get official looking stuff to abuse the system.

Anyone can get stuff for any dog. You don't have to prove anything, your dog does not have to meet any criteria (you only click on a button that sais that your dog meets "most" of the criteria) - and after that, you pay for your kit.

I think there is a bit more to that to getting a service dog certified . . .

Re: Faking a SD

The person who is considering passing their pet dog off as a Service Dog needs to understand that the dog has NO special access rights, only the DISABLED PERSON whom the dog is helping does.

In other words, if she is NOT disabled in a way where she would require the dog to do normal, everyday things, she could not take the dog anywhere even IF the dog were an actual, certified Service Dog.

As far as the legalities go, I am not sure whether there is a federal statute that would cover this, but in California (for example), passing a dog off as a Service Dog is a misdemeanor and can be punished by at least 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Certify My Dog
https://www.certifymydog.com/

Service Animal Registry of America
http://www.affluent.net/sara/

Those two organizations, as well as any other organization that offers registration or certification of Service Dogs over the Internet, without ever having personally seen or tested the dog, are not reputable registries and do NOT offer anything other than worthless pieces of paper and/or fake Service Dog ID tags. It's the same as printing the stuff up on your home computer.

Re: Faking a SD


I was really hoping this would be a federal offense of some sort so I'd have some real ammo to perhaps get this person to stop.
I don't think me just saying it's wrong is going to do it.

TJ - Here in Oregon

And in case anyone is thinking this is about me and Dante (got some PMs) it's not.

Though I am not disabled this is a HUGE button for me and I would NEVER lead people to believe that Dante is a service dog!

Doing a quick look at your state laws I can't find anything on fakers. You can always contact your State's Attorney General and ask them.
