An emotional support animal benefits the owner by offering him emotional support, companionship and comfort. They are required to be trained for supporting a person with any disability. Many a times it becomes quite difficult to discriminate between a service animal and an emotional support animal. Ultimately, it is concluded that the owner of the animal is suffering from some kind of mental disease or some mental disorder but he is not fully physically disabled.
