Definitions

“Service animal” means any dog individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not service animals for purposes of this definition.

N.H. Rev. Stat. § 167-D:4

A service animal trainer, while engaged in the actual training process, shall have the same rights and privileges with respect to access to public facilities, and the same responsibilities as are applicable to persons with disabilities using a service animal.

  2. It is a misdemeanor if a person willfully causes physical injury to a service animal or willfully allows his or her animal to cause physical injury to a service animal. If the physical injury to a service animal is severe enough that a veterinarian or service animal trainer determines that the service animal is incapable of returning to service, that person shall be guilty of a class A misdemeanor.

III. In any case where a person is convicted of harming a service animal as described in paragraph II, he or she may be ordered by the court to make restitution to the person or agency owning the animal for any bills for veterinary care, the replacement cost of the animal if it is incapable of returning to service, and the salary of the service animal handler or trainer for the period of time his or her services are lost to the agency or self employment.

N.H. Rev. Stat. § 167-D:10

Not happy. I did not receive the digital certificate or the harness. Everything else was fine. You guys should not sell people items and then don't include them in the package. I even paid 10.99 for expedited shipping. Very disappointed!!

It was simple, easy, and convenient. The only one thing the site didn't let me do it was to submit my doctor's letter explaining that I have a disability; therefore, I need a service dog.
