It's "Have Dog Will Travel". Many times I have had to educate businesses and law enforcement about the rights of Service Dogs. Seeing eye and hearing dogs are the most know kind of service animals. But many disabilities are not visible like PTSD. Therapy and companion animals do not meet the criteria of service animals in accordance with the ADA. A service animal is not a pet and must be a dog that assists a person with a disability. A service animal does not have to be professionally trained or certified.
