Air Travel does not have to be stressful if you prepare yourself and your service dog ahead of time. With acquired knowledge, skills and experience, you and your service dog can become professional, seasoned travelers.

Here are some tips to help you reduce travel stress so your trip will be smooth flying:

  • Make your reservations as far in advance of your travel dates as possible.
  • Familairze yourself with your aircarriers website information regarding traveling with a Service Dog.
  • Call and talk with an airline travel agent who can help with the details of booking a flight with a Service Dog.
  • Prepare for the needs of both you and your dog that will include dealing with delays.
  • Educate yourself on all Service Dog laws.
  • Educate yourself on the procedures of going through TSA security checkpoints with your Service Dog. If you carry medication and/or medical devices find out how those need to be handled during the security check and how they need to be stored on the aircraft. http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/passengers-service-dogs

Taking a K9 Wings Airport Training Seminar will help you to become educated and give your dog the training experience of air travel in a relaxed, supportive learning environment.
