Service animals are exempt from "no dogs" regulations under a number of anti-discrimination statutes protecting people w/disabilities, including ADA. The issue, as I see it, is whether your dog really is a service dog i.e., one who performs assistance functions for a person unable to do those things or a therapeutic dog, i.e., a dog whose presence is a source of comfort and solace to the person. Service dogs are usually trained and certified. Provide the certification to yor landlord and that should be the end of it. A therapeutic dog is likely to be an entirely different matter since such animals are not likely to be covered under antidiscrimination statuutes like ADA. Which is your situation?
