Summary:

The above map highlights the states that have laws against the use of fraudulent service dogs. As of July 2017, only 21 states have laws ban individuals from a range of fraudulent activities involving service animals. This includes falsely representing to another person that an animal is a service animal, obtaining false or improper service/assistance animal license tags, or using specific leashes, vests, or harnesses affiliated with service animals on pets. Some of the states also have laws against knowingly and intentionally misrepresenting facts to a health care provider for the purpose of obtaining documentation for a service animal. In all states, these laws are misdemeanor offenses or civil infractions.
