The boom in trained service animal use and access has transformed the
lives of travelers with disabilities. As a result, tens of thousands of
people in the United States and Canada enjoy travel options that were
difficult or impossible just a few years ago.

essential information and salted with personal, hands-on stories of
life on the road with service dogs and miniature horses.
As the travel-savvy human companions of Trooper (Kisor's miniature
schnauzer/poodle cross) and Raylene (Goodier's black Labrador), the
authors share experiences from packing for your animal partner to
widely varying legal protections to the animal-friendly rides at
Chapters cover the specifics of air, rail, road, and cruise ship
travel, while appendixes offer checklists, primers on import
regulations and corporate policies, advice for emergencies, and a
route-by-route guide to finding relief walks during North American
Practical and long overdue, Traveling with Service Animals provides any
human-animal partnership with a horizon-to-horizon handbook for
exploring the world.
