> Virgin has been very easy to deal with when flying with mindDogs, however they do not automatically recognize mindDogs as one of their pre-approved disability service organisations.
> mindDogs assessed by Gayl O’Grady and Dee Scott in QLD are automatically cleared to fly under the Queensland Guide Hearing and Assistance Dogs Act 2009.
> Further documentation will be required for assessment and clearance prior to flying:
Documents that confirm the dog has been trained to alleviate the effects of a disability; and
Documents that confirm the dog meets the standards and hygiene and behaviour that are appropriate for an animal in a public place – this is most often and easily confirmed by providing a Public Access Test.
