PET Talk: Understanding Pet Housing Laws
What do our courts and lawmakers tell us about housing laws when it comes to people and their animal companions? How much do rights change for service dogs, and people who rely on emotional support animals?
Property owners, landlords, and resident managers often feel bound by a confusing regulatory framework. The differently-abled with assistance dogs experience safety threats and the disbelief of neighbors from an ever-increasing number of pets presented as service dogs. Meanwhile, comfort animals see the most recent changes in the law.
This Community Pet Conversation explores real-world options for every member in our community: assistance dog handlers, emotional support animals, tenants, and landlords. It will explain the basics of animal housing law and provide practical tips to resolve disputes.
