Change in Washington Law about Service Animals Starting January 1, 2019
Authored By: Northwest Justice Project
The state legislature has found that misrepresentations of pets, therapy animals, or emotional support animals as service animals has made it harder for people with disabilities to get acceptance of their properly trained and essential service animals. The new law limits the definition of “service animal” and imposes a fine for misrepresenting an animal as a service animal. #8405EN
The state legislature has found that misrepresentations of pets, therapy animals, or emotional support animals as service animals has made it harder for people with disabilities to get acceptance of their properly trained and essential service animals.
What does the new law do?
Limits the definition of “service animal”
Imposes a fine for misrepresenting an animal as a service animal
What is a “service animal”?
The definition includes only
dogs and miniature horses
individually trained to do work or perform tasks directly related to their owner’s disability RCW 49.60.040 (24).
Does this include emotional support animals?
What kinds of work do service animals do?
Some examples include
guiding an owner who is blind or has low vision
pulling a wheelchair
assisting during a seizure
fetching medication or the phone
What is a place of public accommodation?
Restaurants, stores, hotels, and so on. The longer list is at RCW 49.60.040(2).
How will the law work in real life?
If a service animal’s trained purpose is not apparent, a place of public accommodation or a police officer can ask:
Do you need the animal because of a disability?
What work or task has it been trained to perform?
They cannot ask for
a demonstration of the animal’s training
proof that it is a service animal
What happens if someone misrepresents an animal as a service animal?
The person may have to
pay a $500 fine (RCW 7.80.120)
remove the animal from the premises
This is also true of someone who refuses to answer the questions asked of them in situations described in “How will the law work in real life,” above. RCW 49.60.214.
Local Animal Boarding
Camp Union Pet Lodge
14637 NW Holly Road
Seabeck, WA 98380
Our canine guests stay in a private suite that has an indoor area for the bed, food, and water. The suites are attached to a private and covered run, and your pet has free access in and out as much as they like from 6am-8pm. They are closed in at night and let out in the morning when staff arrives to serve breakfast and clean. The indoor area is heated as necessary to keep our guests comfortable. We have big enough accommodations to house family pack members together as long as there is no fighting at feeding time.
Our feline guests are housed separately from the dogs. They have their own kitty room that is heated and quiet (just how cats like it). They do not have access to the outdoors, but a kitty atrium may be in the future.....

It’s no mystery that dogs love day care and boarding at Camp Bow Wow Silverdale – you can tell by the way they whine and bark with excitement at the mention of C-A-M-P and the way they pull their parents from the parking lot through the front door because they can’t wait to romp and play with their fur-iends. Parents love Camp Bow Wow too; they know while they are busy away for a day or traveling, their furry kid is happier and healthier because of the many benefits of Camp:
Provides regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight
Relieves boredom, separation anxiety, and destructive behavior at home
Improves socialization with dogs and people
Enhances quality of life
