Your most trusted source for emotional support animal letters.
We build relationships.
Let’s talk networks. Put your cell phone down, we’re not talking those kinds of networks. We’re talking about ESA licensed therapist networks. It's is a bit like that coverage map, only instead of better download speeds or less chance of dropped calls, coverage refers to which trusted therapists you can connect with to get the most out of your ESA letter.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recognizes the benefits of a Florida Emotional Support Dog, and through its regulations, allows ESA owners to live in most non-pet housing without requiring to extra fees.
“The Department’s [HUD] position has been that animals necessary as a reasonable accommodation do not necessarily need to have specialized training. Some animals perform tasks that require training, and others provide assistance that does not require training.”
The Federal Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) enables ESADoggy owners to fly, free of charge, their pet in-cabin on a commercial airline.
Exceptions to the Rules
Legal protection afforded to Florida Emotional Support Dogs is not unlimited. For example, public places are not required to admit ESADoggy Dogs even when they are required to do so for service animals.
Even landlords may deny renters to live with Florida Emotional Support Dogs if, even with reasonable accommodation, the animal poses a threat to the safety and health of others. Limited in scope, a landlord is not allowed to deny the request due to size and breed.
However, since no training is required for ESADoggy dogs, there is no need to provide the animal is certified.

Referred to as an “assistance animal,” which includes service dogs, a Florida Emotional Support Dog does not require any formal training or experience.
Qualifying for a Florida Emotional Support Dog
There are two ways to go about qualifying.
Let’s start with the wrong way. Unfortunately, most of the ESA advertisers you come across on Google are outright frauds. Pretty much, if they’re selling “ESA pet accessories” and looking to register your pup in an “ESA database,” you’re likely being taken for a run on your money.
The right way is the way that complies with Federal Law.
The ESADoggy way.
Here, those qualified for an ESA (more about that in a moment) are prescribed an official Emotional Support Animal letter by a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Our letters rigorously comply with Federal Law (Fair Housing Act and the Air Carrier Access Act).
Additionally, all of your personal information is stored on our 100% HIPAA compliant servers.
Florida Emotional Support Dog Letter
Occasionally, we’re asked by our clients to “certify their dog.” And well, that’s not how it works.
You see, a Florida Emotional Support Dog letter is awarded to a patient suffering from an emotional disability. We’re not qualifying, certifying, nor approving an animal. Our job is to designate a pet as the patient’s emotional support animal.
An ESA letter from ESADoggy provides:
- Recognition you’re under the care of a licensed mental health professional’s for an emotional disability.
- Verification you’re significantly limited by a disability that affects your mental well-being.
- Recommendation for a Florida Emotional Support Dog as a necessary support for your emotional health.
Just Three Simple Steps.
Once you complete our intake assessment, you'll speak with a licensed mental health professional from your local area/state, discussing your disability and disability-related need for an emotional support animal. If needed, follow-up sessions and optional aftercare may be suggested.
If your therapist determines you would benefit from an Emotional Support Animal, a letter of recommendation will be issued -- securely delivered and also sent US Mail. Your therapist will continue to maintain a relationship with you throughout the year to assess progress made in addressing the symptoms of your disability.
Do You Qualify for a Florida Emotional Support Dog
Hardly a day goes by when we’re not asked if ESA registration sites are legitimate.
And the answer is oh, heck no.
There’s no such thing as a registry, database, or the such. It’s all a scam. Please avoid the following sites:
- National Service Animal registry
- Emotional Support Dog registration
- Official Service Dog registry
- US Service Dog registry
There’s only one way to qualify for a Florida Emotional Support Dog, and that’s a letter of recommendation from a Licensed Mental Health Professional.
Damage Caused by Dogs
Florida law states that if your dog bites a person trespassing on your property, you’re not liable for damages. Owners whose dog bites as a result of provocation, teasing or tormenting also are exempt from the law.
Under Florida law, a dog whose attack results in a serious injury or fatality will be confiscated by local authorities and held for 10 business days. You are entitled to a hearing during that time. If you waive the hearing or the judge decides it is appropriate, your dog will be euthanized.
