Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are now being abused by people who want to scam the device.

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

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

So how exactly does this affect those who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to raised their lives? In many ways.

For one, it could it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of the disability and your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If your landlord or company owner has heard negative stories claiming that some people are abusing the machine, it can cause them to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business owners have begun asking for proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or other evidence is not always legal, although many owners of legitimate service animals and emotional support animals haven't taken advantage of registering them, and therefore have no such documentation to make.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business owners that make registrations services just like the Service Animal Registry of California so fundamental to legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues once the owner can create a simple document that may often satisfy the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it is often easier to give over a document having a simple sentence stating, "This is a service animal" and letting another party browse the information, instead of having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the device, or game regulations? Sadly, the answer is "probably yes." In everyday life, there is always room for abuse and individuals can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that people as a society applied to protect the rights of those who need such protection. As an example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. As well as the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse store return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in the area of service animal laws is hopefully small, might just be a very small investment when compared to the higher goal of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you cannot control any system to really make it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the not enough people who scam service animal laws will be the price we gladly pay to ensure the disabled inside the great state of California have equal access under law.
