This has all been very interesting, and I'm glad I brought it up. So in the interest of enlightenment for all of us "Am-trekkers", here is a direct quote from the American with Disabilities Act Title !!; Section II:
"A service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability .... Emotional support animals, comfort animals, and therapy doges are not service animals under Title II and Title III of the ADA"
So I have copies of the Act and all Amtrak published rules in my briefcase for my nest Amtrak trips. So take note, Amtrak. And sorry for all og=f the expensive sites that charge for (phoney) documents that claim to get you on planes. Note that these sites make no claim to boarding a train with the false documents.
And sorry, Lady, if you just "never go anywhere without 'Pookie', you'll just stay at home with Pookie.
Oh, I am a passionate dog- lover. Have been all of my life. Real dogs; not stuffed animals!
Thanks again for this forum, everyone. Happy and inspired travels
