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?
