If you are like us, you may get a little anxious when flying.

It is very common and it’s no secret that it can make the flying process a little stressful.

Well, fear no more, thankfully, Sydney Airport has hired a new team to help with anxious travellers.

And they have four legs!!! Yes, we are talking about PUPPIES.

American Airlines and Assistance Dogs Australia (ADA) have teamed up to launch their brand new program called emBark at Sydney International Airport.

Two mornings each week, a group of ADA-trained doggos will be waiting for you at the American Airlines' check-in desks to help anyone and everyone who needs a little calming down.

As well as helping with the stress relief, the dogs will also help to raise awareness about ADA's amazing work and the way animals can help us in most stressful situations.

For now, the dogs will be at the Sydney International Airport's American Airline check-in desks between 7-9am, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

American's Managing Director, Russ Fortson stated, "The atmosphere at check-in is noticeably lighter and more relaxed. If these inspiring dogs can accomplish this during short interactions with our customers, imagine the positive impact they can have on the daily lives of the people who need them."

We love this idea so much!!

Can we please have dogs with us everywhere?
