I want a refund. This place denied my service animal and proceeded to not provide avenues to eventually get him certified. It took an act of god to get this woman, Robin, to tell me the minimum age requirements and she couldn't tell me training certification requirements. She simply said "if a check in counter agent at the airport sees you dog looking around, they aren't going to think he's trained" What kind of insensible response is that?

Great experience, easy to do, just wish the identifying gear was more affordable or they offered a coupon of sorts. Cards came in less than a wk.

I bought these items for my dog. The shipping is really fast. It comes earlier than I expected. The ID help my dog can access a lot of place for free. I can take my dog go on airplane and hotel for free. I can take him to restaurant. Now my dog with me everywhere.
