Make Life Easier with a Therapy Dog ID Card

If you're a therapy dog owner, you understand the immense comfort and emotional support these special pets can provide. But you may also know that not every place you go will understand or recognise the significance of having a therapy dog. That’s where our Therapy Dog Identification Cards come in.

Clarifying the Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 is an essential piece of legislation in the UK aimed at preventing discrimination. While the Act does a lot to protect the rights of individuals, it also provides legal allowances for assistance dogs, but not therapy dogs. Understanding this distinction is vital for therapy dog owners.

Assistance Dogs Vs Therapy Dogs: Know the Difference

Assistance dogs serve individuals with physical disabilities, assisting in specific tasks like guiding the visually impaired or picking up items for someone with mobility issues. These dogs are entitled by law, under the Equality Act 2010, to accompany their owners into most public spaces without any restrictions.

Therapy dogs, on the other hand, are meant to provide emotional support and comfort. They are not trained for specific tasks to aid individuals with disabilities and therefore, do not fall under the legal protections provided for assistance dogs. Therapy dogs usually work in settings like hospitals, schools, and nursing homes, where they offer emotional comfort to multiple people rather than assisting one individual with tasks.  Additionally, therapy dogs are often used at home to provide ongoing emotional support, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and improve the overall well-being of their owners.

The Importance of Knowing Your Rights

Unlike assistance dogs, therapy dogs don't have universal legal access to public spaces. Rules about whether therapy dogs are allowed can vary from venue to venue. It's always good to check with the place you're planning to visit to see what their specific policies are.

The Value of Having a Therapy Dog Identification Card

While having a therapy dog ID card is not legally binding, it can offer considerable advantages when you're out and about. For example, some cafes or shops might have a more lenient pet policy if you can easily show that your dog is a therapy dog. The card serves as an immediate visual cue, making it less likely for you to run into issues when entering pet-restricted areas.

Why Our Cards Stand Out

  • Eco-Friendly: In keeping with environmental responsibilities, our cards are made from biodegradable plastic, ensuring they are as kind to the Earth as your therapy dog is to people.

  • Highly Visible and Informative: The cards are designed to be easily read, featuring a clear photo of the therapy dog, along with the names of the dog and the owner, all presented on one side.

  • Built to Last: Durability is one of our priorities. These cards can handle everyday wear and tear, making them a long-lasting investment.
