In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and campus policy, service animals are permitted in the Psychology Building, with the exception of certain areas. Under the ADA a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. The dog must be trained to take a specific action when needed to assist the person with a disability. The dog does not have to be professionally trained to qualify as a service animal. The ADA does not require service animals to wear a specific vest, ID tag, or harness, but does stipulate that service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices.
