A: I'm not sure what your question is. Your landlord cannot discriminate against you if you have an emotional support dog or a service dog. You have not indicated that your dog qualifies.

Whether your landlord's "contract" is allowed may depend on the terms of your rental agreement. Landlords have a duty to maintain safe premises and a habitable environment for all tenants. This would likely include a duty to regulate the presence of dogs on the property.
