  • Free Webinar - Introduction of the Service Animal Toolkit

    July 27, 2022, 1-2:00 p.m. EDT 
     
    Do customers bring dogs into your business claiming they are service animals, emotional support animals, comfort dogs, or therapy dogs? Join Chris Sweet, technical assistant for the Northeast ADA Center, as he guides business owners and employees through the essential basics of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and service animals. Service animals are becoming more common as people with disabilities realize what they can do. But not all dogs are service animals.
