Flight School for Dogs to Help Them Travel on Planes

Service dogs are not usually trained to fly on planes, and this school helps them adapt to the voyage. From ABC News:

It my look like fido in flight, but this is air hollywood. A studio filled with cockpits, cabins, even security checkpoints. The movie “the bridesmaid” was shot here. But this day — it’s a classroom. Teaching nearly a dozen dogs, mostly service canines, what it’s like to fly. It’s the sights and sounds that were accustomed to that these dogs have never experienced and this is like a real airport going through security. The studio owner, a dog lover, was shocked by what he saw at a real airport. I see a dog and its owner freaking out and then it really hit me that I have a facility that I can train these people. Reporter: How real is this? Extra and actors hired as tsa officers. One tip, at security, use a nylon leash. No metal!
