Traveling with Service Dogs

Galveston to Houston AirportWe’ve all seen them and been impressed by them, they are dogs with jobs, and they’re very important to the people who rely on them. That reliance extends to those dogs traveling with their owner at all times, and that means on trains, planes, and automobiles.

If you’re traveling with your service dog from Galveston to Houston airport, there are things you need to know about taking a shuttle bus like the ones we provide at Galveston Shuttle.

We do allow all service dogs on our vans, busses, and coaches. We also let any animal that will fit into a crate. Owners do need to purchase a seat for the animal.

We suggest that you feed, water, and exercise your dog before traveling to make sure the animal is relaxed and ready to go. You should also arrive in plenty of time for your shuttle from Galveston to Houston airport, so you’re not stressed, and neither is the service dog.

Make sure you have all the documentation that you need to assure airline, airport, and cruise staff that your dog is indeed a service dog and that you require its assistance. Like all travel considerations, planning ahead will make your trip with your service dog a walk in the park.
