The current laws are sufficient, they just need to be enforced.

I have seen a lot of this site floating around on various websites I go to, even ones that aren't dog related. I don't know but it seems like they make it really easy to get a dog registered as a service or ESA.

Some of those registries are super shady. If I recall correctly, Saeleofu registered a chocolate TARDIS as a service animal through one of them just to prove a point.

It doesn't seem to be common knowledge that a service dog is just for assisting a person whom is disabled.

I know of a few people who boast that they paid "X" amount to "register" their dogs as service dogs. And they seem convinced that because they spent the money, they are now allowed to bring their dogs everywhere.

Not that I pry and inquire if they are in fact disabled, but I am relatively sure that they are not.

As far as I'm aware too, there's no one registry or even a need for the dog to have that sort of paperwork?

I know it doesn't mean anything but the fact that they don't even require proof of a doctors note or anything made me go like ... wut?

Actual conversation I have had with my previous doctor:

Doctor: "So, what illness caused your speech issues?"
Me: "..... I'm deaf."
Doctor: "I understand, but what illness is giving you difficulty with speech?"
Me: ".... My deafness."
Doctor: "I don't think I'm being clear in what I mean. I am wondering what happened that caused you to have a speech issue?"
Me: "................... I became deaf."

I walked out of the office and never came back to this doctor. I am really glad that proof of a doctor's note is not necessary, as it is not proof of need or legitimacy of an disability.

Furthermore, a doctor can only determine whether you have an impairment or not, they are not able to determine whether your impairment is a disability.
