At Service Dog Certifications, our goal is to minimize discrimination and persecution for handlers and their animals. Know your rights and stop the harassment.
Service Dog Certifications does not certify or authorize anyone to use a Service Animal — nor is certification required by law. The privilege to use a Service or Assistance Animal is granted, under the law, by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and local governments. If you are not sure if you qualify, please consult a local Service Dog trainer or organization. For more information, please review our information below.
Service Dog Certifications does not endorse fraudulent use of our certifications and registration.

Training and Behavior Standards Agreement
While Service Dog owners are allowed to verbally state their animal is a Service Animal for public access, many individuals find that having a way to say they have accepted further training and behavior standards, while not required by law, Service Dog Certifications can help minimize discrimination and accessibility issues while keeping disability information private.

Service Dog Certifications does not endorse the use of fake service animals in any
