Service Dogs


Legitimate Service Dogs are a vital asset to their owners.  Unfortunately in the last few years there has been a significant increase in the use of "fake" Service Dogs.  A true Service Dog requires extensive training and the correct temperament, not ever dog will make a good Service Dog.  There is more to being a Service Dog than buying your dog a vest and an online certificate and calling it a Service Dog.  In response to the problem of "fake" Service Dogs nineteen states now have laws regarding "fake" Service dogs including the State of New Mexico.  Learn more about Service Dogs in the following articles.
