Shame on you @southwestair #parker was not allowed to board as a service dog. Parker had to fly in a carrier, and I had a full blown panic attack. #infuriating #veteran #ptsd Please share!
# Southwest's policy is that it accepts "fully trained" service animals and emotional support animals. "Fully trained" is subjective. The ADA does not have an age or training requirement. The dog has to perform a service to their person with a disability. Parker had his basic obedience, and he has never had a problem with public access. He is PERFECT. Better than my almost 3 year old service dog. He lays on my feet or puts a head in my lap for anxiety. We experienced age discrimination! 😡Ultimately he will be trained for a patient with a wheel chair, but for now I'm using him. Nala is in remedial training with @nv_k9training_ in Southern California, so even "fully trained" service dogs still get continual training. @southwestair needs to use some common sense. I've seen yip yip dogs with no obedience on flights as an emotional support animal, but because they aren't young I guess they automatically are presumed to be "fully trained".... #screwsouthwest
