(6 customer reviews)

Filled DOT form in PDF or Printed format

From $ 17


The Department of Transportation (DOT) Service Animal Form, also known as the “Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) Service Animal Form,” is a document that is used to provide documentation that a passenger’s service animal is trained and able to behave in public settings. It is required by some airlines for passengers traveling with a service animal.

The form serves as a way for the airline to verify that the service animal is qualified to fly in the cabin with the passenger and it’s not a pet. The form typically includes information such as the passenger’s name, contact information, and the animal’s breed, weight, and name. It also includes a statement from a licensed mental health professional certifying that the passenger has a disability and that the animal is necessary to alleviate symptoms of that disability.

The DOT Service Animal Form is important because it can help prevent confusion or misunderstandings about the service animal’s purpose and ensures the safety and comfort of all passengers on the flight. It also ensures the compliance of airlines with the Air Carrier Access Act, which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities and their service animals.

Air Department of Transportation: DOT Service Animal Form

The U.S. Department of Transportation published a final rule concerning registered service animals in the Federal Register on December 10th, 2020. According to it and the Department’s Air Carrier Access Act, a service animal handler has to provide carriers with two forms of documentation, namely a U.S. Department of Transportation Service Animal Air Transportation Form and a U.S. Department of Transportation Service Animal Relief Attestation Form.

In case people find the process of getting all needed documents tedious or challenging, we offer them our services as professionals in the sphere of animal service. All you need to do is to provide us with all the required information and wait. The copy will be sent to your email, so you can print it out at any time you need it.

Can Airlines Decline a Person with a Service Dog?

Yes, there are a few conditions that may allow airlines to decline a service dog handler even if he has a department of transportation animal air travel form:

  • An animal violates safety requirements (too heavy, too large, etc.);
  • It can be a direct threat to the health or safety of others;
  • It cannot behave well on the plane;
  • A service animal owner didn’t provide DOT service animal forms to the airlines on time.

Other than that, a person with a service dog cannot be denied at the airport; if so, the help of the ADA may be used to deal with this problem.

It’s important to note that not all airlines require the DOT Service Animal Form, and the requirements may vary depending on the airline, the destination and the type of service animal. It’s always best to check with your airline before traveling with a service animal to ensure you have all the necessary documentation.

  • Can I get a DOT form if I don’t remember the exact date of my service dog vaccination?

Yes. It is possible to fill in the dot service dog form partially, leaving blank spaces where needed, and write the correct date later, right before the flight. Just be careful and don’t forget to do so to avoid unwanted problems during the trip.

  • How long does it take to receive the ordered DOT form in PDF format?

All digital documents are processed by our employees and require manual approval. The maximum time needed for it is 8 working hours, but My Service Animal team always does everything to make this process as fast as possible (even if you need your digital documents during weekends). When it is finished, an email will be sent to your address; don’t forget to check the “Spam” folder if you didn’t receive your American airlines’ service animal dot form on time.

  • Is it possible to get a DOT form by myself?

Yes, empty form examples are available on the Internet, so you can search for them on your own, fill in and use them when needed.

How Can Employees at the Airport Define a Service dog?

  • Ask a person whether their animal is indeed a service animal and what tasks it typically performs for the owner;
  • Look to see whether there are any service animal accessories, like harnessed, leashed, and so on;
  • See whether an animal is well-trained and behaves well.

Contact our team of customer support to get the DOT fast in a few simple steps. MyServiceAnimal is always here to assist!

  1. Emily

    This is a very important thing for people who travel often or who are planning to start traveling with their animals. The process was fast and not as complicated as I thought. A lovely agent from customer support helped me during the whole procedure. Thank you, my service animal!

  2. graliontorile

    I have recently started a site, the information you provide on this site has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all of your time & work.

  3. Sully K.

    I wasn’t aware of so many things when I became a service animal owner. For example, that you need special documents to have your pet with you during fights. I’m so glad there are such places as My Service Animal to get everything you need in one place.

  4. graliontorile

    Some genuinely great information, Gladiola I discovered this.

  5. Lily Days

    This thing is incredibly helpful if you travel a lot like me. It’s cool that you can buy it online because sometimes this process can take some time.
