These are NOT our Customized ID Badges. Please CLICK HERE for Customized ID Badges featuring your Dog's Photo and Your Information as Owner/Handler of the Service Dog.
PLEASE NOTE: We offer the following styles: Service dog, Therapy Dog, Service Dog In Training, Working Dog, Guide Dog, Medical Alert Dog, Mobility Dog, Hearing Assistance Dog, and Seizure Alert Dog.
IMPORTANT: It is illegal to label your dog as a Service Dog if you are not disabled. The ADA defines a Service Animal any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. If they meet this definition, animals are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether they have been licensed or certified by a state or local government. A service animal is not a pet. Petjoy|Wiredog is not responsible for those making purchases under false pretenses.
Let those around you know your dog is a Service Dog
Wiredog's Service Dog Collar-Cards cuts down on hassles in public places by clearly stating that your dog is a Service Dog. This ID Badge features your dog's photo along with the Handler Information and your City, State and Zip. It also contains Service Dog information on the back directly from the United States Department of Justice that addresses common questions and concerns and provides a toll-free number to the Department of Justice should business owners or employees have further questions. Collar-Cards are the size of your Driver's License, making them extremely convenient. They can be fastened to a collar, harness or vest.
Service Dog ID Badges Informs Others About Your Rights
The Americans with Disabilities Act, also known as the ADA, clearly states that proof of "certification" cannot be required by any facility or business for legal access if you meet the requirements for a person with a legal disability, and your dog meets the requirements of a service animal. While many business owners and establishments are ignorant of this law, Wiredog's Collar-Cards will have all of the necessary contact information should they require further explanation regarding your rights when accompanied by your Service Dog.
Traveling with your Service Dog
Wiredog's Collar-Cards can help make travelling on commercial airlines much, much easier. The Department of Transportation, also known as D.O.T., Service Animal Guidance for airlines states the following:
- Carriers shall accept as evidence that an animal is a service animal identifiers such as identification cards, other written documentation, presence of harnesses,tags or the credible verbal assurances of a qualified individual with a disability using the animal.
Please note that the Department of Transportation lists identification cards at the top of their list and only verbal assurance is at the bottom. Many owners of service dogs have reported that the airlines have required some sort of identification even though by law they are not allowed to do this. Please understand that you are NOT required by law to carry one of these cards, however, they can dramatically speed up your process of getting through airport security, etc. without arguments or confrontations.
Why Use Wiredog Collar-Cards?
Wiredog's Collar-Cards inform those around you that you are accompanied by a Service Dog and help infrom them of your rights as a disabled individual. These cards are NOT cheap laminated cards, and are made of durable PVC plastic that is as thick as your driver's license. The ink we use is Thermally infused into the plastic using high-heat printing so it is made to last.
We offer the following styles: Service dog, Therapy Dog, Service Dog In Training, Working Dog, Guide Dog, Medical Alert Dog, Mobility Dog, Hearing Assistance Dog, and Seizure Alert Dog.
While the back of the Service Dog style cards feature information from the D.O.J., regarding the ADA, our Working Dog and Therapy Dog styles will feature a brief description of the dog's work. For example, when ordering a "Therapy Dog" style ID Badge, we will describe how Therapy Dogs are used in Hospitals, etc.
Please see the alternate views of the back of the cards. We have the back of the Service Dog, Therapy Dog and Emotional Support Animal so that it will make it easier to decide what style best fits your situation.
FOR YOUR DOG'S SAFETY: NEVER LEAVE A COLLAR CARD ATTACHED TO YOUR DOG'S EQUIPMENT WHILE THEY ARE UNATTENDED. THIS COULD RESULT IN YOUR DOG CHEWING THE ITEM, RESULTING IN POSSIBLE SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES .
