Emotional Support Dogs at work places
Does anyone know if ESAs are allowed at the work place? I am going through some tough things at the moment and would love to have Thumper or Bella with me at work.
Bella wouldn't be a good candidate as she is too much of a barker and would disrupt the work area. But Thumper is very quiet and would just sit on my lap while I work and give me tons of loving hugs and kisses that I need at the moment.
I know ESAs can be in apartments if animals are not allowed or on airplanes but are the given any other allowances?
I do know they are completely different from a trained service animal. I would look into getting one of them certified but unsure of the age and process or if they would be a good candidate even.

No they canít but you could talk to your boss and try to explain the situation. There is no certification for an ESA or service dog. ESAís just have to have a letter from you doctor or therapist. A service dog has to be able to do a task though not just comfort you because thatís not a task. When Callie was younger she could predict when a panic attack was coming as well as stop me from my anxiety picking and a few other things.

I would be very cautious at the job, if your supervisor or who ever is over you "thinks" your issues are/ can/ will interfere with your work performance you can loose your job.
However, you can speak to who ever is in charge and say your dog is having issues right now and would it be ok if you took him with you or your dog needs meds during the day and it would be easier to give if he was with you rather then leaving the job to go home. A little white lie will not send you to hell . As long as the dog is well behaved, no barking, no messing on the floor they could say ok.
Two of the privately owned companies I worked for in NY allowed us to bring our dogs to work, I had rascals, barking, Diva girls, I never took them to work, besides I had 3, I would have to had taken the gang

Have you considered a therapist or maybe FMLA?
I have a fully trained Service Dog (hearing dig) who was formally trained and have had places that would have preferred she not be there, so sometimes it is just the fact that so donít want dogs around period.

This is a hard thing for you to be going through. You know your boss better than we do so it would be impossible for us to predict how he/she would react to your request. I would NOT use the excuse that your dog needs you to give meds to during the day, etc. I find honesty is the best policy. Good luck and I hope you can resolve whatever issues you are dealing with at this time.

ESA are not allowed public access by the ADA. An individual owner/manager would need to make allowances for an ESA to be permitted. So, you would have to ask your boss, and as others have mentioned, that comes with risks.
