This is a two-session webinar series. The first is on service animal basics; the second is specifically on service animals under the ADA and Fair Housing Act. Sign up for one or both!


Session One 


Can I bring my service goldfish into a hotel that has a policy of "No Pets Allowed?" Doesn't my landlord have to allow me to have my emotional support parrot in no-pets housing? I own a grocery store and don't allow animals other than service animals-but how can I tell that that dog really is a service animal? I work at an airline; am I allowed to ask for medical documentation when a passenger wants to bring their psychiatric service animal on the plane with them?


These and similar questions are ones that the Northwest ADA Center receives daily, and are some of what we will tackle during this 90 minute webinar. The webinar will also cover:

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act definition of a service animal
  • Service animals under the Fair Housing Act and the Air Carrier Access Act
  • Service Animals and State and Local Laws
  • The clarifying questions a business or government entity may ask an individual with a disability about his or her service animal
  • Service animal etiquette and guidance

Session Two 


There is much confusion about the differences between the rules and regulations regarding service and assistance animals when it comes to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Housing Act (FHA). This comes from the similarities between these pieces of legislation, as well as the tremendous differences.

During this 90 minute webinar, the speaker will apply the ADA law to the topic of service animals, and then will discuss service animals under the FHA. The speaker will point out comparisons throughout the presentation, and ample time will be left for questions.

Live Closed Captioning will be provided.

Participants have the option of obtaining 1.5 CRCC credits, or a Letter of Attendance for each session attended.
