The Paws & Effect service dogs took to the skies in an effort to learn all that they can learn. We actually only took to the plane that was parked on the tarmac. The dogs took in the sounds, smells, textures, noises, sights and a whole lot more of traveling through the airport, through security screening, up and down escalators and elevators, stairs and ultimately up and into a plane.
But that's not all. They also figured out how to lure the flight crew into giving us all cookies! OK, so only the handlers got the fresh baked cookies that they whipped up at 26,000 feet but the dogs had their treats too.
The training session was a success. Congratulations Tag, Keeper, Gabor, Fyero, and Czar. You all did spectacularly!
Thank you to Air Midwest for providing us the plane and all the accommodations.
