* For California residents, effective January 1, 2022, new law AB 468 requires those seeking an ESA letter for dogs to establish a client-provider relationship with the individual for at least 30 days prior to providing documentation, which will result in having two consultations before qualifying.
Idaho law does not explicitly protect emotional support animals. In line with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it recognizes service animals and psychiatric service dogs (PSD). These animals are distinguished from ESAs as they are specifically trained to perform disability-related functions. For example, retrieving objects for a handler in a wheelchair or alerting an owner with PTSD that they are about to have a panic attack.
ESAs, while providing incredible support and therapeutic benefits, are not necessarily trained to perform functions.
Nonetheless, under federal law, ESAs have protection when it comes to housing in Idaho. Under the FHA, landlords cannot unfairly deny a prospective tenant on the grounds of having an ESA.
The ACAA, issued by the Department of Transportation (DOT), recognized ESAs until 2021. Unfortunately, they are no longer explicitly protected and it is up to the discretion of airlines whether they allow ESAs. Oftentimes they will have the same rules for ESAs as pet animals, including size restrictions and pet fees. Service animals, however, are recognized and permitted to fly with their handlers without additional fees.
When it comes to ESAs and employment in Idaho, this is at the discretion of employers.
To qualify for an ESA in Idaho, it is imperative to have a legitimate letter from a licensed practitioner in your home state. They will assess your ESA needs and write a letter in support of them. Many see ESA letters as a medical prescription, validating the legitimacy of your ESA as an assistance animal.
Having an ESA brings many advantages, including:
One of the biggest perks of having an ESA is the fact that they provide a healthy routine. Whether it's planning feeding schedules, enjoying nightly cuddles on the couch, or going on daily walks, they bring about a stable routine. This brings stability and consistency into owners' lives, further enhancing their quality of life.
Public transport systems can cause huge levels of anxiety, especially during peak hours. ESAs can offer grounding and support to owners, mitigating some of the stress and panic that comes with navigating public transport.
Animals, much like humans, are social creatures. The presence of ESAs reduces feelings of loneliness and makes people feel connected. ESAs are like family members, providing unconditional love and support.
