Tip Sheet

Put your dog first. Flying is a traumatic experience for many humans, let alone animals who may not be fully aware in this environment. Even worse, after the traumatic experience they will end up in a new location. Leaving them behind may be less painful.

The 1st thing to check when flying with your dog is to check the entry regulations for the country you will be entering. then get an airline approved dog kennel, and the trick here is to check with the airline your traveling with to ensure it is right.

Each airline treats dogs in the hold differently so be sure to ask lots of questions, like is the hold lit with lights the whole trip, will the temperature in the hold be the same as in the passenger cabin. try googling the airlines record with pets.

If you must fly with your dog, consider their comfort first. If doggie is small, find an airline where a carrier fits under the seat. Avoid feeding before flight in case of airsickness. Consider diapering your dog on long trips. Ask vet about sedative.
