What is a PSD Letter?

A PSD Letter is an official document signed and written by a state-licensed health professional on official letterhead. Any LMHP including a psychologist, doctor, therapist counselor can write a PSD letter. This psychiatric service dog letter declares that the Dog is part of the treatment plan for a person who suffers from a psychiatric, emotional, or mental disability.

Benefits that Your PSD Letter Offers

  • Access to “No Pet Housing” Apartments, Homes, Airbnb and Dorms.
  • Flying with your psychiatric service dog on any airline for free.
  • Permission to take your Psychiatric Service Dog to your workplace.
  • Access to public places including hotels, restaurants, malls etc with PSD.

What is a Psychiatric Service Dog?

A psychiatric service dog (PSD) is an animal that assists individuals with psychiatric or emotional disabilities. These dogs are specially trained to offer assistance to their owners includes:

  • Reminding the owners to take medicine,
  • Comforting the owner in socially anxious situations,
  • Relaxing the owners who get panic attacks,
  • Taking care of the owner who has self-destructive behavior, etc.

Psychiatric service dogs (PSD) are also known as Psychiatric Assistance Dogs. No animal other than dogs can be trained as a psychiatric service animal. Almost any dog can act as a psychiatric service dog, irrespective of its size or breed.

Like an emotional support animal, a psychiatric service animal assists its owner. However, the difference lies in the fact that almost any animal can be an ESA, but only a dog can be a PSD.
The other difference is that a PSD is specially trained to assist its owner, whereas an ESA doesn’t need special training.

Psychiatric Service Dog Laws

People with mental and emotional disorders can benefit greatly with the help of a Psychiatric Service Dog (PSD). These trained animals have legal protection at the federal and state levels because of the significant benefits they offer. Here are a few regulations that protect you and your Psychiatric Service Dog while requesting reasonable accommodations and traveling facilities.

  • Americans with Disability Act — A Psychiatric Service Dog is protected under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). PSDs must be permitted to accompany their owners in all areas where the public is welcome. This rule also applies to companies and other organizations that provide services to the public.
  • Fair Housing Act (FHA) — According to the Fair Housing Act (FHA), PSD owners have the right to live with their dogs in most housing types. In order to live with a Psychiatric Service Dog, owners are not required to pay any extra fees or deposits to their landlord or housing association. A Psychiatric Service Dog is permitted to live on properties with their owners even if there is a ‘no-pet’ policy.
  • Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) — Psychiatric Service Dogs can also travel with their owners as they are covered by the ACAA. To fly with your Psychiatric Service Dog, you must submit your ‘psychiatric service dog letter’ to airlines prior to flight. Ensure that your Psychiatric Service Dog is adequately trained so that they don’t disturb passengers while traveling.
