A therapy dog is a dog that might be trained to provide affection, comfort and love to people in several locations. These dogs are defined but not covered or protected under the Federal Housing Act or Americans with Disabilities act. They also do not have public access rights with exception to the specific places they are visiting and working. Typically the dog would be granted rights by individual facilities only. Therapy dogs are subjected to several test to ensure that they are fit for the job. These test look at their ability to block out distractions, comfortable around a variety of people with a variety of disabilities, and are comfortable and able to walk through many different terrains.
