Podcast: Service Animals vs. Emotional Support Animals

We’re also seeing today a lot of “emotional support” animals. A lot of them. This week’s guest explains the difference between them, how they are used, and some surprising laws (or lack thereof) pertaining to them. Subscribe to Our Show! And Remember to Review Us!
