How I got started on the service dog road, and how to find an airline to fly with your service dog

I started this quest about a year and a half ago or so. I found a local company at first. For reasons I will not say that did not work out. With some help from my sister I found Alpha K9 in Sacramento CA. After jumping through some hoops with them I got on their list. A year later they found my service dog Bear for me. I live in Washington State and cannot drive. So I had to fly from Seattle to Sacramento and back to pick up my new 80 lbs German shepherd. So I went on Google and found out what airlines flew that rout. I proceeded to call each of time and ask basically the same question. Something like “I am flying soon to pick up my 91 lbs German Shephard service dog, what kind of accommodations can you give me?”
