Sadly, some individuals are asking whether "service animal" laws are increasingly being abused by those that want to scam the device.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces along with other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they to sit near a dog at a restaurant they don't believe is really a "real" service dog, varieties complain that their neighbors use a pet inside a "no pet" building because they claimed the pet is how to ask doctor for emotional support animal.

A few of the commentary posseses an indignant tone, plus some people are downright angry.

How can this affect those who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to higher their lives? In many ways.

For one, it may 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 individuals are abusing the machine, it can cause these phones look suspiciously at all claimants.

Some landlord and business owners have begun seeking proof of status, although asking for written or other evidence is not always legal, and although many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals never have 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 such as the Service Animal Registry of California so important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues once the owner can certainly produce a simple document that will often match the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting the other party browse the information, instead of having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public places, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, do some people scam the device, or game regulations? Sadly, the reply is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse the ones can try to take advantage of many systems that individuals as a society set up to protect the rights of people who need such protection. As an example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. Not forgetting the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail store return policies, or do other bad acts.

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

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