Re: SDIT Law in PA
As soon as I get settled in, I will be sure to reply with a recap of the whole trip! Wish me luck! Talk to you then!
Oh my! You had to get involved with the DOJ?! That must have been quite a frustrating incident! I will definitely give the ADA specialist a call first thing tomorrow, and I thank you for this tip.Quote:Mike Spolling of the DOJ was VERY helpful to me during one airline incident, and suggested having the ADA in-cabin specialist's name on hand... and her number, too.
Thank you for the encouragement Patti! *Hugs* from me and Talon! Would you mind if I asked what the incident was? I want to be ready for anything! (PM me of you need to)Quote: Be polite, but be very clear. Make direct eye contact. You and your SDIT are a team already, and functioning well as a team. Be proud of that! You can do this. I've lost count of the times I've flown with my last dog, and had only one incident.
What a cool story! LOL! Now there's an example of a trip gone extremely well! I hope that kind of good luck is with me!Quote:She was the pilot!
Will do this first thing Monday morning. Hopefully they'll make a notation for me.Quote: request that this info be put into the computer
Will have treat ready! In your experience, is it difficult to keep them calm during takeoff?Quote:If you haven't ever flown with a dog in the cabin before I would like to pass on a travel tip. Have a doggie treat for when the plane takes off.
When you say this is a good example, what specifically are you referring to? Just all the extra precautions we have to take because the "fakers" cause the airlines to be nervous about flying SDs?Quote:For people who wonder why handlers, trainers, and advocates have such a sour taste in their mouths for "fakers" this is a good example of the extra problems that they cause for those who follow the rules.
Thank you!Quote:Good luck in your travels and hope you enjoy yourself. Please let us know how things went and be sure to give any travel tips that you may pick up on the way.
