Federal Service Dog law applies all over the country and is the universally accepted standard in the United States. State Service Dog law may offer further clarification, add additional requirements or outline expectations for various types of working/Service dogs or for dogs in training. It is generally accepted that whichever law provides the most freedom for a disabled individual with a Service Dog in any given state is the one teams will abide.

Next, there are several pieces of federal Service Dog law strewn throughout the legal system. In this post, we’ll be referring to the American Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Other important Service Dog laws are contained in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA) and the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). We’ll be addressing those at a future time. Here’s a chart, though, that breaks down each resource and what it’s good for:
