I was supposed to move to Oregon, but the move didn't take place. Thank God!
I might add that if you live in or around Oregon, Oregon Assistance Dogs may be able to assist you in training your service dog or assist you in purchasing your own service dog if you fit the definition of "Disabled" as defined by the ADA. The link above is the link to check out about what they provide in the way of training and service dogs.
The way it works is if state law provides more protection than federal law (ADA) then the state law is the one that rules. If federal law (ADA) provides the most protection than the state law does (as is frequently the case) then federal law is the one that rules. Many states have not brought their service dog laws up to date with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). Like Oregon, many states only cover people who are blind or physically disabled. Although there is a justifiable argument that points out that psychiatric and neurologic disabilities ARE indeed physical, usually this is not recognised or understood by those in leadership roles who can actually do something to update or revise laws.
