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

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces as well as other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the system. You hear some complain that they to sit near your dog at a restaurant they don't believe is a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain their neighbors have a pet in the "no pet" building since they claimed your pet is esa doctors.

Some of the commentary has an indignant tone, plus some people are downright angry.

How does this affect those that legitimately own and make use of a service animal to higher their lives? In several ways.

For one, it can it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of the disability as well as your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or company owner has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the system, it can cause these phones look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business people have begun seeking proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or other evidence might not be legal, although many owners of legitimate service animals and emotional support animals never have taken advantage of registering them, and thus have no such documentation to create.

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

Although registration is optional, it can help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues when the owner can create a simple document that will often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it's easier to give over a document with a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting one other party browse the information, rather than having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the system, or game what the law states? Sadly, the answer 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 people as a society put in place to protect the rights of those who need such protection. For instance, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. Not forgetting the number of people that lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse shop return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in service animal laws is hopefully small, is arguably a very small price to pay when compared to the higher objective of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you cannot control any system to make it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the few people who scam service animal laws is the price we gladly pay to ensure that the disabled within the great condition of California have equal access under law.
