Possible New Rules for Flying with a Service Dog

Senate Bill 1318 was introduced back in June of this year, and it would simplify the check-in process for handlers with Psychiatric Service Dogs.

It specifies the elimination of the requirement for a traveler with a PSD to show a doctor’s note or prescription for the presence of the dog. This puts PSDs on the same footing as other Service Dogs. However, travelers with Emotional Support Dogs would still be required to show documentation dated within the past year.
