|Service Dogs, ADA and the Fair Housing Act
3 Elective Hours
This course will help you understand your role and responsibilities as an agent for a disabled client with a service dog. In the course you will discover common ways that service dogs assist their owners. For example, some service dogs are mobility dogs for the physically disabled. There are also dogs that assist with medical-related disabilities, such as neurological, developmental, psychiatric, and diabetic disabilities.
Service dogs come from just about any breed you can imagine, depending on what job they perform. Larger dogs are used to pull wheel chairs, while smaller dogs might be more convenient for medical alert purposes. It all depends on the specific needs of the person with a disability.
