Is an ESA a Therapy Dog

Is an ESA a Therapy Dog?

No. Emotional support animals are not the same as therapy dogs. ESA provides support and comfort to their handlers. Therapy dogs are trained to assist people with disabilities other than their owners.

Throughout the training, therapy dogs learn to perform specific tasks to assist people with disabilities and acquire good manners and social skills. They also differ from service dogs, who are recognized under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and have full public access.
