Service Animal and ESA exercise yard

Accessibility Services has a fenced in yard available to students with service dogs and emotional support animals. Please see the guidelines below:

  • This yard is reserved for Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals.
  • This yard is reserved for BGSU students.
  • Nothing may be hung on the trees as they are young trees. Please help them grow. 
  • Animals must be monitored at all times; they must never be left alone. 
  • Students may be taking exams therefore excessive noise will not be permitted as extreme vocalizing would be distracting.
  • Animals must be up to date with their vaccinations and parasite free. 
  • Be sure to clean up after the animal and dispose of it in the proper receptacle.
  • If the yard is in use upon your arrival, you must be granted permission prior to entering with your animal. Not all animals or people are comfortable with other animals. 
  • If your animal is not a Service Dog or an Emotional Support Animal but you are a BGSU student, you may still use this yard until such time as it is too busy to continue to honor this request.
  • Enjoy and let us know of any problem in the yard or with the equipment.
