Recently there have been some important changes in the rules and regulations that allow you to travel with your dog by air.

If your dog has accompanied you in the past as an emotional support animal and your dog is used to flying and is well behaved in public I can evaluate your dog and provide you with a letter that your dog is indeed trained and qualified, well behaved in public and should be accepted in all public spaces as your psychiatric service animal.

Your Service Dog in Public:

No matter what job your service dog performs for you, traveling requires a behavior skill set that your dog might not really have. I can help your dog acquire those skills so you can be sure that you are both confident and stress-free when you travel.

I will help you train your dog until I feel comfortable attesting to the fact that your dog can travel with you and can reliably behave in public.

Your dog needs to be:

  • Fully House trained
  • Able to settle on the floor next to you even with major distractions
  • Show no aggression towards other dogs or humans
  • No jumping up on strangers
  • No barking
  • No begging for food 

Training your puppy to become a traveling service dog companion:

First consultation and lifestyle lesson: $350.00

Follow up lessons $250.00

Please note: In order to qualify as a Psychiatric Service Dog your dog needs to be prescribed by a mental health professional, regardless of how well trained they might be. I can only fulfill the airlines’ and Department of Transportation’s (DOT) requirement that the dog is safe in public and well behaved.

When we say Comprehensive
we truly mean it!

A Comprehensive Behavior Consultation gives you the knowledge and the hands-on tools to both prevent and/or modify possible nuisance behaviors.

 When you learn how positive reinforcement actually establishes a very clear line of communication and teaches your dog how to earn reinforcement, you can both establish great habits from the get-go, and modify nuisance behaviors into polite behaviors.  Behaviors such as barking, jumping up, pulling on a leash, begging at the table, or restlessness at home can easily be avoided in the first place but they can also be replaced by building a great reward history for replacement behaviors.

The Comprehensive Behavior Consultation will allow you to solve and prevent problems by giving you insight into how behaviors work and allowing you to understand the functions of behaviors. Thinking from the dog’s point of view will allow you to fulfill both your dog’s and your own needs at the same time.

The carefully thought out and well-proportioned design of the Haqihana harness guarantees maximum comfort in all situations. Any kind of pressure would be safely distributed onto the dog’s sternum and thorax only, even when the dog is pulling, jerking or being restrained. The harness therefore never causes pain or skin chafing. If properly used in combination with the longer leash the dog feels free of restriction and allows the dog to move naturally. The two buckles on the dog’s back make putting on and removing the harness easy for both the dog and the handler.
