Just yesterday I travelled with my dog in 1AC compartment from Chennai.thanks to the booking clerk ,who without any raising any major issue ,issued a ticket for my Dog.The only problem I faced was not able to take him out for natural needs during travel for a day which is very cruel ,but my dog did not seem to have any urge.
The coach attendant was very friendly toward my dog.overall I am satisfied by the duty of the booking clerk except his unusual concern about my dogs health record, which is justified being an concerned citizen. more
