That would be so wrong to lie. People who call their pet a service dog in order to take their pet in the cabin make it harder for the disabled with genuine service dogs.

Be aware that in an increasing number of jurisdictions falsely claiming a pet is a service animal is a crime. Also many, if not most, European countries have very different rules about service animals.

Francedoes not count psychiatric as a service animal. Really only seeing eye and hearing dogs, but I have heard of diabetic dogs and seizure dogs.
BUT the EU (which I think supersedes french law) does

"Art. L. 114. - For the purposes of this Act, any limitation of activity or restriction
of participation in the life of a society suffered in its environment by a person because of an alteration
substantial, lasting or definitive of one or more physical, sensory, mental, cognitive or
mental health, a poly-disability or a disabling health condition. "
But you need a european card that states you are disabled.

As to US> How do jurisdictions claim not a service dog as by ADA rules they cannot ask anything beyond what is she trained to do, From ADA website
"You may NOT legally ask the person what his/her disability is or to show proof of disability or proof of where the dog was trained."

i agree, but...
I know a girl that has tried to commit suicide many times until her doctor made her get an animal. she has a small dog which she cuddles with when she is depressed and has had no attempts since. Airlines don't include psychiatric dogs as service dogs- but she really needs it. What is she to do but call it a service dog. It is not the overused ES dog
