Tasks performed can include, among other things, pulling a wheelchair, retrieving dropped items, alerting a person to a sound, reminding a person to take medication, or pressing an elevator button.

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS
Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA. These support animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression, anxiety, and certain phobias, but do not have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Even though some states have laws defining therapy animals, these animals are not limited to working with people with disabilities and therefore are not covered by federal laws protecting the use of service animals.
Therapy animals provide people with therapeutic contact, usually in a clinical setting, to improve their physical, social, emotional, and/or cognitive functioning. Therapy animals can be used in a "read-to-me program" in schools, on college campuses to relieve anxiety and loneliness. In a courtroom situation where children need to tell a story, they can tell it to the dog without judgement or fear and gain confidence and comfort from the presence of the dog. Of course, there are the more well-known settings of hospitals and assisted living facilities.
“ A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. ”
