GREENSBORO, N.C. — Generally speaking, flight attendants don’t have to worry about dog bites while on the job, but that changed recently.

During an American Airlines flight from Dallas to Greensboro, N.C., an “emotional” support dog became agitated and took a chomp out of a flight attendant, according to FOX8 News.

“We need to make sure, as part of our caretaking for them, that we’re not putting them in situations that they’re not ready for and unprepared for,” says Kat Carver, trainer at Saving Grace K9’s, a Lexington, N.C.-based rescue dog shelter that provides training for support animals.
