One important component to the service dog placement course is the recipients commitment to an integration back into the community.
It's not merely taking off your shoes, removing your jacket and emptying your pockets when traveling with a service dog, so, Paws & Effect sets up a training session at the airport. The lesson shows everyone how to handle a service dog while going through the TSA screening, boarding and exiting a plane.
Frontier Airlines and the TSA were gracious enough to allow, Paws & Effect and the recipients of their service dogs, to have secure access to the airport and one of Frontier Airlines jets.
The training was a great success.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered and participated in this training session.
