    Btw, I know that veterinary certification of certain vaccinations are required in order to board your dog at the DL kennel. Are they also required in order to bring SDs inside the parks?
    Thank you for posting that. We raise for CCI.

    No, no requirements of vaccine records needed to bring the dog into the park. I would not want to have to carry our vaccine paperwork everywhere, but we usually have it in the hotel room, along with out insurance policy for the pup.

    Re: For Dog lovers ... Dogs in and around the parks.

    I have no idea what kind of documentation is required to bring the animal in the park, but service ANIMALS of all kinds can be found at Disneyland. In addition to dogs, I have personally seen some kind of service bird (parrot?) at the park. We were actually told during training tht there are a variety of animals that can be taught to be service animals, including monkeys (I a bummed I never saw one!).

    Actually, that is no longer true. In 2011, due to abuse, the DOJ redefined service animals to limit it to dogs and miniature horses. I think the "service snake" was the straw that broke the camels back.

    They also redefined what qualified as a service animal, eliminating companion animals, comfort dogs, therapy animals, etc...

    From the DOJ's ADA site "A service animal is any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not considered to be service animals."

    In a way that's a shame because it eliminates anyone with dog/horse allergies from ever having a service animal. I would think there might be a few others that could be legitimately trained besides dogs and horses. I understand why they did it, if they were getting "service snakes" it must have been getting to the point of sheer absurdity - but still.

    Why do the dogs wear muzzles? I'm not a pet person btw

I know I have been bit by a dog and am not comfortable around certain dogs still. I would never want to see dogs running through the parks. Service dogs, yes becasue they are doing a job and should be there but otherwise forget it. I have seen to many that you can tell are not service dogs in the parks as it is over the last couple of years now. Plus the fact is the way some are in the parks as it is, can you imagine if those same people had dogs? I can bet some might think it ok to let them run around off a leash. Which goes back to the safety factor.
    CinderellaGirl, I have joke about saying one of my cats is a comfort pet but I would never really do that to them. They would freak.
    Shouldn't service dogs have official papers or something?!

    They aren't muzzles, they are called Gentle Leaders. They are similar to a horse halter. The pups can fully open their mouth, eat, drink, and lick you to death if allowed. They are used for training and for a final handler who might have hand issues.

    A muzzle will cover the dogs mouth area and keep it from opening. If you look at any of the dogs, you will see they can open their mouths, and the top pic, the pup has her mouth open in the pic.

    Re: For Dog lovers ... Dogs in and around the parks.

    I'm not familiar with the collar that has the muzzle strap. Is that a CA thing? My neighbor has a seizure dog but it doesn't use that style of collar. Just curious since I see all your dogs wearing it. Great photos BTW.

    Never mind. I just saw the answer a few posts ago while looking at the pics again.

    Re: For Dog lovers ... Dogs in and around the parks.

    What a lucky dog!

    FYI, the gentle leader is designed to put pressure on the top of the dog's muzzle, to simulate how the alpha dog will bite down on the beta dogs' muzzle to show who's boss. It's a less restrictive way of communicating in the dogs' language that you are the alpha. It is not painful to the dog in any way and also helps teach them not to pull on the leash. My dog trainer who is adamantly opposed to choke collars swears by the gentle leader.
