Assistance Dogs and Air Travel

Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) makes it clear that assistance dogs are to be accepted by airlines.

The CAA makes though a few worth noticing remarks:

– smaller breeds of dogs can stay in front of the seat however if the dog cannot fit in the space the airline may arrange a seat but it will cost

-a certificate for a dog training organisation may be requested by the airline

Hmmm, personally I am concerned about the first point. Those assistance dogs I have seen so far would never fit in the “slot” in front of the passenger’s seat. Often the place is so small that even your own legs do not  fit in there! Well, it means that persons with special assistance have to “invest”.

Are you a person who travels with guide dogs? Or maybe you heard about others who do? Share your opinion on this topic, let us make the travel easier and more joyful!!!
