Service Dogs

SERVICE DOG Information


The Lady of the Lake welcomes ADA defined service dogs.


SERVICE ANIMAL means a DOG that is individually TRAINED to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.  The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the personís disability.

It is a misdemeanor to fake a service dog.

No other species are allowed Public Access as a Service Animal.

Comfort, Therapy, or Emotional Support dogs do not meet the definition of a service animal.

Service Dogs must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animalís work or the individualís disability prevents him from using these devices. Individuals who cannot use such devices must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.


Service animals may be excluded if:

1. The dog is out of control and the handler cannot or does not regain control; or

2. The dog is not housebroken.

If a service dog is excluded as a service animal, the individual will be allowed to travel without the service dog and/or the Dog/Pet rules would apply to the dog.


When it is not apparent that the dog is a service animal, you will be asked:
1. Is the dog required because of a disability? and,
 2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?


ADA revised regulations became effective 3/15/2011. For more information or questions, please visit:, or call 800-514-0301 (voice), 800-514-0383 (TTY)
