an ESA IS NOT COVERED UNDER ADA and DOES NOT have the same protections. but some people like to bully their opinion that Fido is a SA and this covered by ADA. actually.. I should amend that to many. not all, but more than just a few bad apples here and there. so yes I do find it disgusting . here's the thing. I just got a dog( purely pet) for Christmas. when I was researching the best no pull harness for him, I came upon a website that offered a vest with velcro patches. when I went to actually order.. my options were Service, Security and Support. I couldn't choose no tabs at all. I was furious Because these people make it beyond easy for scammers to abuse the system. yes, I can choose to buy from them and not actually attach the tabs, but that is irrelevant. furthermore, not enough people have the balls to ask the question ADA allows: what task is this animal trained to do for you. because based on that answer any public or private business has the right to refuse access. and that doesn't even factor in the ones who lack the balls to confront the ill behaved so called 'SA' and demand they be removed.
