Pets can be a source of immense comfort, but they can be essential for people experiencing mental disabilities. If you are experiencing mental illness, you can register your pet as an ESA (Emotional support animal). They are often dogs or cats because they have been bred for centuries to connect with humans.

ESA provides plenty of benefits to people, from improving their moods to decreasing stress and depression. Making your dog an emotional support animal is easy than most people think. It’s not necessary to purchase a specially trained ESA. You can teach your dog to be an ESA.

What is an emotional support dog?

An ESA can be of animal, but dogs are among the most common. Emotional support dogs or ESA dogs aren’t just pets. The purpose of an ESA-certified dog is to reduce the impairment related to a mental health disability. Living with mental illness can negatively affect major day-to-day activities, where a certified ESA dog can help.

An emotional support dog may be helpful because:

Studies have shown that emotional support dog companionship can effectively treat mental disorders. 74% of pet owners report better mental health and well-being with a decrease in depression, anxiety, or stress. They not only improve people’s mental health and well-being, but they also help you live longer. According to a study, people who owned dogs lived longer than those without dogs.

  • A dog might help calm you down if you have a panic attack.
  • Taking care of a dog might give you a purpose if you have severe stress or depression.
  • A dog helps a person socially isolate by getting that person to go outside for walks.
  • Having a dog guarding your home may help reduce the fear caused by PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

Certifying your dog as an emotional support animal comes with gives you several benefits resulting from special permissions and accommodations granted under federal law. Some of these are:

Live Anywhere With Your Pet

You have the right to bring your pet with you into your apartment, building, and any other home, even if the place is no pet zone.

Many apartments or buildings say no emotional support dogs “over 50 lbs”, you can’t take this breed as an ESA, or you have to pay some extra charge for your ESA. But you are protected by federal law and have a right to take your ESA with you. A landlord can’t discriminate against emotional support animals based on breed and weight.

No Pet Fees

You have the right to deny the extra fee for your ESA set by the landlord. Landlords and other services will try to charge you for your emotional support animals through monthly pet fees, pet insurance deposits, and pet surcharges. Federal law prevents them from doing so if your dog has been certified as an emotional support animal.

Money Back Guarantee

If not qualified, we offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. No Appointments Required.

Be More Accepted In Public Places

While ESAs are not federally protected businesses like a restaurant or a store. If you have an emotional support dog, you can show it to the restaurant host or store attendant. People react extremely favorably to an ESA because the awareness of how they impact health and well-being has continued to grow.

How Does Your Dog Become An Emotional Support Dog?

To make your dog an emotional support animal, a registered mental health professional needs to determine that you have mental illness and that an animal can help you to resolve this hurdle. Then they give you an ESA letter that certifies your dog as an emotional support animal. An emotional support animal doesn’t mean your dog needs special training. Emotional support dogs can help just by interacting or being with their owners.

An ESA letter is written by a registered mental health professional (LMHP) and states that you have a mental condition that qualifies for an emotional support animal. It often explains that the animal is necessary for you and helps with symptoms like depression, anxiety, or stress. This prescription will help to see that your animal serves a purpose.

What medical conditions qualify you to have an emotional support dog?

The only requirement for ESAs is that you have a mental disability and the animal helps with your symptoms. Mental health disorders that qualify as a disability, include:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • PTSD ( Post-traumatic stress disorder )
  • OCD ( Obsessive-compulsive disorder )
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder

Some physical health issues also qualify as a disability, including:

  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Multiple sclerosis


Choose an ESA that offers comfort and love to its owner without putting an extra burden on a person’s life. So, best to avoid big animals or exotic animals. Remember, emotional support animals don’t need to be individually trained but must be well-behaved in public and around other people.
