Hey, it is Raelin!

Some people don't need a dog to do tasks for them, but just need a pet at home to provide love, companionship, and comfort.  This is where emotional support animals (dogs, cats, birds, fish, etc.) come into play.  For people who live in no-pets housing, this is a good thing, as it allows them to fulfill their doctor's prescription to have a pet live with them.

Emotional support animals are not service dogs, as they are not trained to do tasks for their human, so they can only go where pets can go (with the exception of being able to live in no-pets housing and travel with their owner on airplanes in the US).  They are still wonderful dogs, though (as are any dogs, of course)!
