Service Animals

Service animals are permitted at all times. Service animals are defined by the ADA as “dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.” Examples of such work include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting or protecting a person with seizure disorders, reminding a person with mental illness to take medication, or calming a person with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack.

In cases in which a service animal is out of control, DanWalt Gardens personnel will request that the handler correct the animal’s behavior, or in some cases, may request that the animal be removed from the Gardens. For the purpose of this policy, and in accordance with Section 36.302(c)(2) of the ADA, the following criteria must be met for a service animal to be considered “under control”:

  • The animal must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using the devices.
  • The individual with the disability must maintain control of the service animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
  • The animal must be housebroken and able to relieve itself in the designated area behind and to the south side of the Pavilion.
  • The animal must not demonstrate agitated or aggressive behavior, including but not limited to barking, whining, biting, growling, jumping, scratching, leash pulling, and sniffing other visitors.

In addition:

  • Service animals may not be left unattended.
  • You are responsible for controlling your service animal’s behavior. You are also responsible for cleaning up after your service animal.
  • If at any time your animal’s behavior becomes a threat to the safety or well being of other visitors, the Gardens reserves the right to ask you to enjoy the Garden without your service animal present.
