Accessories for service animals and ESA are really important in the life of a disabled owner of a service dog. They not only inform the surrounding that a person with special needs just came in but also work as proof that your dog has all rights to be in this place with you if people see a sign that the dog is on duty and cannot be disturbed.
What are service dog tags?
A service animal tag is a small identification tag or medallion that is worn by a service animal to indicate that it is a trained and certified service animal. The tag typically includes the words “service animal” or “assistance animal” and may also include information such as the animal’s name and identification number. The tag is worn on the animal’s collar or harness and serves as a visual indication to others that the animal is working and is not a pet. These tags are not mandatory but are often used to help identify the animal as a service animal and to prevent confusion or misunderstandings in public spaces. It’s important to note that having a service animal tag does not make an animal a service animal.
Usually, tags contain all important information about your service dog that might be needed: the pet’s name, and the name of the owner. Also, it may include answers to some common service animals questions, The Department of Justice phone number, etc.
Its presence is not required by the ADA rules; however, most service dog handlers prefer to have it in order to keep people around aware that you and your animal should not be disturbed. Mostly, tags are made in three copies – one for the dog, one for the owner, and one for the spare.

- Peace of mind: Having a service dog tag can provide peace of mind for the owner, knowing that their animal is clearly identified as a service dog and that it is protected under the law.

What is an emotional support animal tag, and why is it needed?
An emotional support animal tag is a small identification tag or medallion that is worn by an emotional support animal to indicate that it is an ESA, and not a pet. The tag includes the words “emotional support”. The tag is worn on the animal’s collar or harness and serves as a visual indication to others that the animal is an ESA and not a pet. These tags are not mandatory but are often used to help identify the animal as an ESA and to prevent confusion or misunderstandings in public space
It can contain (the owner can order engraving from a third-party company) all the essential information about the pet and about the handler – the name of the pet (and sometimes the owner), the owner’s phone number, address, etc. It is needed in case the animal gets lost, as well as to show that it is not just a pet but a companion and moral support for the person. That is why you cannot be separated.
Why do you need a service dog ID, tags, and other accessories?
Many service dog owners prefer to carry the accessories with them in order to avoid uncomfortable questions related to their disability or health issues, as well as protect their privacy. Sometimes, when you go to the shop, cafe, or any other public establishment, employees there do not believe that your dog is trained specifically for your disabilities and not just there for fun. A tag or harness is like an indicator to those not aware of this ability of the dog.
Moreover, with the help of these items, it is also possible to spread public awareness on the topic of service dogs. Some people have never seen a service animal in action, so they can simply not understand they are different from regular pets. That means there will be no inappropriate pets, interactions, talks, or questions. And that is what most service dog handlers find very uncomfortable.
In addition, a service dog / ESA tag is very useful in case your dog is accidentally lost (it may happen at the beginning of the training). As it contains all the needed information (including your contact details), your pet will be found in no time if it gets lost. And that is a fantastic bonus, don’t you think?
