We are here to help people live a more enjoyable and productive life using service dogs.
Service dogs aid people in many ways. These useful animals support their owners by allowing them to go and do things in public that may otherwise be difficult without their trusted companion.
NASD is here to register and certify service dogs.
Welcome to the
National Association of Service Dogs is a nationally recognized, non-profit organization, which professionally certifies service dogs (and other special aid dogs or animals) to assist people with disabilities or special needs.
Ask yourself, why should you get your dog registered or certified as a service dog? Because, seeing is believing. As noted below the regulation clearly states that no documentation is required. At least not on a federal level, yet. Some states do require animals to be certified by other criteria and that requirement is growing year by year. We provide a nationally recognized certification so when you are challenged (and you will be) by a business owner you can prove your service dog (or animal) is registered and certified.
So, do you want to take your service dog with you wherever you go? If so, the process is very simple. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) governed by the Department of Justice (DOJ), in this excerpt from this article posted at this ADA link http://www.ada.gov/archive/animal.htm the main questions about SERVICE DOG, OWNER'S RIGHTS AND BUSINESS OWNER'S RIGHTS are asked and answered. We suggest reading the entire article before you continue with your service dog registration.
Do you already know about the legal rights of people with disabilities to take their service dog or service animal with them everywhere and are ready to get your certification identification now? If so CLICK HERE and start the process so we may complete your process quickly. Our certification includes therapy dogs and other animals that provide aid for people with disabilities.
