University of Chicago/Delta Institute

Today:  we revisit our conversations with Peter Berg of Great Lakes ADA Center and Valparaiso University School of Law professor Rebecca Huss, on the difference between "service animal" and "comfort animal," as brought about by a recent incident involving the owner of an animal and employees at a northwest Indiana business.

A recent incident at the County Line Orchard between a visitor to the business and two employees raised the question:  what is a "service animal" and what is considered a "comfort animal?"  Associate Producer  Dee Dotson brought together two experts on the topic for these conversations on Wednesday. 

Peter Berg is a veteran specialist and trainer at Chicago-based Great Lakes ADA Center -- and Rebecca Huss is a professor at the Valparaiso University School of Law.  We begin by Mr. Berg to explain the ADA and the laws around the use of service animals.

Today:  two conversations dealing with the laws and the rules and regulations behind the question of what is a "service animal" and what is a "comfort animal."  The recent incident at the County Line Orchard between a visitor to the business and two employees prompted my associate producer (and board op) Dee Dotson and I to begin this examination of the issues and the conversations with Peter Berg, a veteran specialist and trainer at Chicago-based Great Lakes ADA Center and Rebecca Huss, a professor at the Valparaiso University School of Law who teaches courses in animal law.
