|You could say that your dog is a medial alert dog, but the regs specifically state that any dog that assists with a mental health disability (no matter how it assists) must provide the letter from a mental health care professional. This is total BS in my opinion... they say these rules are needed because of fakers. Well, I've got news for the ACAA, if they are making it more strict for PSDs, the fakers will switch to impersonating seizure alert or other dogs next. Plus, since when is it OK to discriminate against an entire class of citicens based on the fact that someone else might break the law? Sheesh! Honestly I wouldn't mind if they required documentation from all SDs (in fact I'd welcome that as airplanes I think have the highest rate of fakers), but to require it only from one class of SD is just wrong.
However in practice, yes you could just say medical alert and hope that they don't decide your verbal assurance isn't "credible".
