SERVICE ANIMAL RULES

Following is an example of reasonable rules that associations may adopt regarding service animals. Associations can adopt rules requiring service animals:

  • be trained to perform tasks to mitigate the effects of its owner's disability,

  • be clean and free of foul odor whenever in the common areas,

  • not urinate or defecate in inappropriate locations,

  • not create a nuisance by unnecessary barking or whining,

  • not show aggression toward people or other animals,

  • obey the commands of its owner,

  • work calmly and quietly on a harness, leash or other tether,

  • be able to lie quietly beside its owner without blocking aisles, and doorways,

  • stay within 24" of its owner at all times unless the nature of a trained task requires it to be working at a greater distance.
