Is my dog a service dog?

A service dog is defined under the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) as a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. The work or task performed by a service animal must be directly related to a handler’s disability. A dog whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support does not qualify as a service animal.
