Hi and welcome to Peer Review! smiley - smiley

I think this can be an interesting Entry but you should work a bit on your introduction. Many people have no idea what ESA stands for so you should explain that early on. Not only say 'emotional support animal' but also explain what exactly that means. Also be aware that we have a very international readership so 'acquiring an ESA letter' may not mean anything to someone living in a different country.

You could explain under which circumstances someone needs an ESA. Lately there were quite a few stories on the internet about people taking all kinds of animals with them to all kinds of places and pretending it's for emotional support. Please enlighten us.

Also I do not quite agree with you about German Shepherds having no health issues. Hip Dysplasia is very common with that breed because they are bred so their back is lower at the tail end.

I also think that while you mention all the advantages of the breed you may also say something about what kind of needs they have. What do people have to be aware of to be able to make an informed decision about getting a German Shepherd and not a different breed or a mix breed dog? Or are ESA dogs only allowed to be certain breeds? I can see the logic with dogs that actually help people with a disability, but how do things work for emotional support? Do they also get special training of some kind?

I'm a tad disappointed that this entry doesn't discuss why you should have a German Shepherd smiley - dog as a European Space Agency. I had wondered whether Laika had been a German Shepherd...

I gather from your name of 'real esa letter' that this is a subject that you are, at the very least, very interested in, but this comes across a little like SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) or an advert for a website disguised as an entry, rather than purely an entry in itself. If the link at the end is removed it certainly has potential And the font colour really doesn't work in all of h2g2's skins, such as Goo. So while it is good that you are keen to get the hang of GuideML, changing skin colour isn't the best thing to experiment with.
