Don’t Submit Your Lousy ESA Paperwork
Reviewing your ESA letter.
At ESADoggy, we offer a free web-based service that allows visitors (aka you) to submit their Emotional Support Animal letter, where it's reviewed by a team member.
We'll gladly take a look and reply back with our thoughts, but don't hate us if we come back with bad news.
The ESADoggy Network (ESANet)
A therapy-based relationship with local highly-trained mental health experts.
When you’re choosing an ESA letter, it’s essential to consider a company’s network of providers.
ESANet is a network of licensed mental health professionals who have all received training on fair housing and assistance animal law, accommodation verification documentation, and best practices for conducting emotional support animal assessments.
Our network consists of many experienced psychologists, licensed professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and clinical social workers serving each state from coast to coast.
Care for those with psychological disabilities shouldn’t end with the prescription of an Emotional Support Animal letter. If left untreated, mental illness can lead to further crisis. Our therapists are trained to offer follow-up care — commonly regarded as a critical component — with the goal of improving your life, while helping to avert costs and crises associated with mental illness.
Why Our Letters Disrupt The Industry
Innovation leads to innovation.
Simple, Accessible, and Cost-Effective
We believe telemedicine will change the world, making it more affordable and easier to care for patients anywhere, including rural and underserved areas. We believe everyone should have access to care through telemedicine.
Introducing all-inclusive pricing — just pay one flat fee, and you’re never out another dime. That’s a switch from others who will soak you with hidden costs for their emotional support animal letter.
Oh, Come On Now
Not On Our Watch.
Emotional Support Peacocks & Squirrels
While Federal Law is likely in favor of these unique animals, we believe the “bad optics” of an Emotional Support Peacock detracts from clients desperately in need of our assistance.
We’ve heard their tales of woe, stories of “no way, that can’t be true, that’s just too horrible to imagine.” Such is often the case with wounded warriors, first responders, and individuals burdened with a lifetime of abuse and trauma; genuinely the most fragile people you’d ever run across, and ones we seek to help.
The ESA business is full of people and businesses best avoided. If you take one thing away from this visit, remember these tidbits:
- Avoid sole-practitioners. Try explaining to your Georgia HOA Board that your California-based therapist is “legitimate.”
- Black lists. They exist, and we’re betting those sole practitioners out in the western states are at the top. And you wonder why you were denied a reasonable accommodation?
- Avoid the big boys. It’s very typical for them to issue a letter to you without performing an assessment and evaluating your situation.
- Certifications, registrations, and instant letters. They’re a rip-off, pure and simple.

We’ve simplified the recommendation process through our online assessment, verifying when an emotional support animal would be useful in helping emotionally disabled people.
Typically, any well-behaved dog or cat. No special training is required. But proper socialization is expected wherever you go with your ESA. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Air Carrier Access Act, and Fair Housing Act, your emotional support animal (ESA) does NOT need any specific training, but it must be manageable in public and controlled by you, its handler.
Note: While the law does not exclude any specific species from qualifying as ESAs, in reality, commonsense will prevail. For example, while there may not be any written exclusions, if a travel passenger presents with an ESA letter desiring to be accompanied in an aircraft cabin by a sheep as their ESA, the airlines will in all likelihood require the animal to be crated and travel in “cargo;” and that is if space allows. Usually animals bigger than a mid to (smaller in height) large dog are required to travel on separate cargo planes. Similarly, a landlord would most likely defend themselves successfully in a lawsuit based on their rejection of a tenant with an exotic, dangerous or very large animal as an ESA.
To legally qualify for an emotional support animal (ESA), you must be considered emotionally disabled by a licensed mental health professional. Qualified clients will receive a properly formatted prescription letter.
The letter should state that:
- You are currently his/her patient
- Are under his/her care for the treatment of mental disability found in the DSM IV or V (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, version 4 or 5).
- Your disability substantially limits at least one major life activity
- He/she prescribes for you an emotional support animal as a necessary treatment for your mental health.
- In addition, the letter must be dated, written on his/her letterhead, include his/her license type, number, date of license, and state in which the license was issued.
Sure they can write you a letter they claim will “last a lifetime,” but many airlines and housing entities will only honor prescription letters written within the last year. After that, they can, and very often will, require you to provide an updated letter. You don’t want to find that out when you arrive at the airport to catch a flight! At ESADoggy, we make the process as simple and seamless as possible, we can even provide you with a reminder(s) as you get close to your renewal date.
However, it is HIGHLY recommended you check the ESA policies of each airline you intend to travel on, as they have different requirements as to check-in, carriers, etc., and other useful information. Airlines and other entities will make every effort to work with you; it is your responsibility as an ESA owner to make an effort to work within their parameters if you can as this creates a smoother, better experience for all.
Federal Law does not recognize an “official emotional support animal registry.” Additionally, ESAs are not required to be registered anywhere!
Those services offering “ESA registry” are out for your money by selling fake certificates, shiny ID cards, and dog tags.
Nobody Raves About Average
Sales go up and down. Service stays forever.
Thoughtful clinician who took his time.

Considerate and attentive.
Really happy the Doc didn’t have that “patronizing” quality I’ve found in other mental health professionals. Asked questions, listened to my concerns, felt good.
Mike R. - Feb, 2018
Zero worries or concerns.
If I ever run across anybody that needs a support animal I will save them the time by just giving them your number.
