Flying with a service dog

Does one need a letter from their doctor if they plan on flying with a seizure alert dog? Was told contradicting information - one saying a vest (that says "Alert Dog") and verbal assurance is enough, but then another said rules have changed?

There is the law and what some dolt gate keeper may tell you. Call the specific airline. Make sure you get the name of who you talk to. If you don't like the answer, work your way up. Also, if the dog was trained by a school, they should have people to help.

I made one flight with a dog on its way to begin training, and never had the least problem. You should be able to a code on your boarding pass.
