Henry Kisor: Traveling with Service Animals

Service animals have opened up amazing new worlds of adventure for travelers with disabilities. Henry Kisor and Christine Goodier provide a narrative guidebook full of essential information and salted with personal, hands-on stories of life on the road. As the travel-savvy human companions of Trooper (Kisor’s miniature schnauzer/poodle cross) and Raylene (Goodier’s black Labrador), the authors share experiences from packing for your animal partner to enjoying the animal-friendly rides at Disneyland.

A section of easy-to-use pages offers travelers handy checklists, primers on import regulations and corporate policies, quick advice for emergencies, and other information.Practical and long overdue, Traveling with Service Animals provides any human-animal partnership with a handbook for exploring the world.

Henry Kisor is a retired book review editor and literary columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times. His books include What’s That Pig Outdoors?, A Memoir of Deafness and Zephyr: Tracking a Dream across America. Christine Goodier is a freelance travel writer.
