United airlines joined delta airlines new policy this month and will no longer accept emotional support animal kittens or puppies on board.  The company states that it will also not allow emotional support animals on flights longer than 8 hours as it tries to crack down on soiled cabins and biting incidents that have harmed passengers and crew.

Airlines have been tightening up their guidelines for emotional support animals and we have seen new guidelines from the following over the past few months; Alaska, American, Allegiant, Delta, Jetblue, Frontier, Spirit, and United Airlines.  You can find all the new United guidelines on our site at the link below;

The Chicago-based airline joins rival Delta Air Lines in tightening its rules. Delta took the lead in banning young puppies and kittens last month.

Support and service animals fly free of charge and without a carrier under the 1986 Air Carrier Access Act.

  1. Good for them. These dogs are not being trained properly and I hope more airlines do the same. There is a need for ESD, but it has to be regulated correctly. ESD are giving true Service Dogs a bad name!

  2. I applauded them in their decision. The “emotional support pets” do not have the same training and behavior than a full trained service dog. It gives the service dogs a “BAD reputation”, and it is not fair to the animals. Most certified service dogs received many years of intense training. they learn not to bite, not to go to the bathroom unless taken to the proper place, and not to disturb others.. they can be seeing but not heard. They are a medical equipment for those of us that have medical conditions. I think emotional support dogs are needed but they have to be in a different category and unless properly trained and certified to a certain level, they should not be confused with medical service dogs.
