While our site only provides registration for ESA's and Service Animals it is a good idea to know what a therapy dog is.
Therapy dogs have no access rights like Service Dogs or Emotional Support Animals have. They are strictly dogs that go to hospitals, nursing homes, etc...and cheer people up. We do not register therapy dogs and you should be very careful if you come across a website that says they will register your therapy dog. Therapy Dogs are certified for the support of others while Emotional Support Animals are prescribed for one handler. This is done at each individual hospital or care center you wish to volunteer at so please contact the center if you wish to make your dog a therapy dog. Remember, Therapy dogs are not protected under any ADA law and are not protected under the Air Carriers Act or Fair Housing Act.
