Although mostly dogs we sometimes are seeing mini horses, chinchillas and others.

Some of these pets are known as ESA’s or emotional support animals. A fast increasing subset especially since no formal training is required, just a note from one’s doctor saying that the pet helps the patient.

This has stirred some controversy as some airlines and restaurants that bar pets will allow entrance to an Emotional support animal. There is no national certification program or registration for any type of animal.
