Question by x_swallowtheknife_x: Tx service dogs “in training” laws?
according to tx laws about SDs in training “An assistance animal in training shall not be denied admittance to any public facility when accompanied by an approved trainer who is an agent of an organization generally recognized by agencies involved in the rehabilitation of persons who are disabled as reputable and competent to provide training for assistance animals, and/or their handlers.”

but what if the trainer is also the dogs owner? i plan on training my own service dog and getting him certified once he meets all the requirements (which is usually around 2 years old) but i need to know if ill be able to take him everywhere with me in order to socialize him to the things he’ll need to deal as a certified SD… does anyone know anything about this or has a #/email/website that i can contact to find out. im only concerned with TX laws since thats where i live. thanks!
im not a certified trainer. i am just training my own dog to become my service dog and dont wanna be kicked out of stores b/c hes not certified yet. he will be wearing a “service dog in training vest” too where ever i take him.

As long as you are an approved trainer it doesn’t matter who owns the dog.

Be sure he has on his vest and you have your card. But if the dog has on his vest/halter, you will probably never be stopped anyway.
