Flying With Your Dog: New Class Makes Canines Better Airline Passengers
Some people are naturally better travelers than others; so it is with pets. But whereas humans can temper their anxiety or irritation at the airport bar or by downing an Ambien, dogs don't have that option (although, to be accurate, your vet will prescribe a travel sedative for your pet if need be).
Now, there's a class available for canine air passengers that's aimed to keep them calm when going through airport security and in-flight. According to MSN, Talaat Captain, the president and CEO of the world's largest "aviation-themed film studio," Air Hollywood, was inspired to create the Air Hollywood K9 Flight School. Given a dog's acute sense of sight, hearing and smell, it's no surprise that blaring announcements, crowds, hovering strangers in uniform and turbulence can make for a stressful experience.
If your pup is panicky when taking to the skies, perhaps the above video will help convince you that heading back to school is a good idea.
