Chapter 10 covers a special topic: service animals. All three titles of the ADA generally require, with a few exceptions, that covered entities allow the use of service animals as an accommodation for people with disabilities. The ADA limits its definition of “service animal” to dogs. In the Title I setting, courts have addressed whether dogs are a reasonable accommodation in the particular employment setting. In the Title II and III settings, entities are subject to regulations not applicable under Title I, and dogs have been allowed in a variety of settings from schools to hospitals to other public locales. Throughout, the chapter provides numerous U.S. case law examples illustrating the concepts covered.
