New Airline Guidelines for Service Support Animals

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The U.S. Department of Transportation now has new guidelines for service and emotional support animals on planes.

It says airlines cannot ban specific breeds of dogs on flights, but airlines can decide if an animal is safe to travel.

The rule comes amid controversy over safety and passengers abusing the policies for emotional support animals.

Airlines have a month to make changes to their policy.
