American Airlines has just made changes to crack down on Emotional Support animals. But more important, per CNN, they have made the following change for Service Animals:

"Starting February 1, American will require passengers traveling with service animals to electronically submit a DOT form in advance of a flight outlining the dog's behavior, training and health. Authorization is valid for one year or until the expiration of the animal's vaccinations."

DOT Form

Sounds like a good start. Now if they would only prescribe a 10 year sentence for those falsely claiming poopsy-poo is a "service dog" instead of a pet, those who truly need a service dog would be fully trusted as both honest and needing the dog's assistance and give those owners the respect they deserve.
