Sit ‘n Stay Global has developed an innovative training program according to Carol Martin, Top Dog at the company. The program, based on its proprietary Pet Safety Protocols, allows flight crew members to acquire the skills necessary to enhance the safety and security of any pet aboard a private aircraft.
“We found, after several inquiries from corporate jet owners, that there was a real need to understand how to make sure any pets on board were properly secured in the event of an emergency,” Martin said. “Our Pet Safety Protocols were originally formulated through considerable experience and extensive research into different in-flight situations. The training program was a product of that research. Then, we enlisted the aid of a national celebrity ‘SpokesDog,’
The training program shows Ricochet in various scenarios, such as turbulence, ditching and evacuation. Crews are shown how to prepare for an emergency, how to minimize the risks and manage the safety of all on board, and finally how to insure a successful outcome.
Martin explained, “Like any part of our jobs, preparation makes all the difference. If you’ve gone through the training, you can be ready to respond to an in-flight emergency with more confidence and the knowledge to keep our furry passengers safer.”
Sit n’ Stay Global is a nationally-recognized company that provides in-flight service, pet nannies and concierge assistance to private jet owners. More information on the program can be found at their web site: http://www.sitnstayglobal.com/
