Therapy (emotional support) animals are just getting out of CONTROL!
This is ridiculous and honestly if you need something to make you feel "complete" or relaxed you cant expect the world to bend to your whim. I'm a landlord and DO NOT accept dogs. I'm finding people are not claiming every dog they have is a therapy dog, and sadly its super easy to get a doctor to just give a note for you to claim this. I dig further and will even ask for 3+ months extra security (because that's still legal for pets) to detour them but honestly I cant just say "no dogs" and have it mean "no dogs" anymore. I'm sorry but at the same time, if you NEED a "therapy animal" Im going to deduce you are probably not in the mental state I would want to rent to. If this was for something like seizures I can understand, still wouldn't rent to you, but I would understand more.
Any other land lords thinking this is just ridiculous? You cant even deny a PITBULL! If the pitbull is a therapy animal you are screwed.
At my other halfs job she was telling me a while ago people were trying to bring SMALL HORSES to work and claim them as therapy animals? Whats happening here, Am I in the twilight zone?
The reason Im bringing this up is because I just rented one of my places and the amount of people who try to claim this is just getting retarded.
