|they are saying anxiety dogs can't go on planes now. I usually lie and say my anxiety dog is for seizures.... Not like they can tell.... And it's against the law to ask. To me, it's worth a white lie to not have crazy anxiety/panic attack on plane...
Who is this "they" you are talking about? The ACAA (the law that pertains to service animals on airplanes) hasn't changed. PSDs are allowed under the ACAA, the requirements are simply different than those of the ADA, that's all. And when you say "it's against the law to ask" - no, it is not. Again that comes from the ADA (which doesn't apply) instead of the ACAA (which does). Under the ACAA the airline crew isn't limited to the "two questions" and can question you at length.
You're not actually talking about just telling "a little white lie" but about breaking the law, and that's a black eye for SDs everywhere - no better than any other kind of faker. And if the airline crew doesn't believe you they are well within their rights to either force you to fly your dog in cargo, or forgo the flight. Not worth it! Why not just play it straight from the start?
Know the law, obey the law: it's that simple.
