American Airlines Offers Free Puppy Cuddles At Checkin Desks


Book A Vacation

In a world where very little is free, American Airlines is offering one of the sweetest freebies of the year.

American has begun an “emBark” program in association with Assistance Dogs Australia. Adorable puppies will be stationed at airline counters at Sydney Airport for customers to give a quick cuddle before their flight.

These puppies may well reduce travel stress and are intended to raise awareness and expose more people to the wonderful, life-changing effects that service dogs can give to people with physical disabilities, PTSD, or autism, according to Fox 8. What a warm-hearted and adorable idea. It is nice to think that the program is likely to encourage customers to support the work of Assistance Dogs Australia as well.

Of course, you can never please everybody. Those with pet allergies or a fear of dogs that outweighs their travel stress levels may want to avoid the American Airlines check-in desks at Sydney Airport from 7:00 – 9:00 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
