Default Right size soft crate to pick up 2,5mo female pup

Hi All,
I will pick my 2,5 mo female pup next month and bought the max size in-cabin crate that the airline permits and was wondering if the crate will be okay during that 2h flight. Crate size is 19LX10WX13H. I know it will be tight but I still prefer to have her near by in the cabin if possible. Also what would you advise during and/or after the flight to help her to adjust the new environment. Thanks for your help and advises in advance.

I would check with the breeder if that size crate will be big enough for your pup. Also if the breeder can get the pup used to a crate before you pick her up that will reduce the anxiety. Also ask for a favorite toy to accompany her in the crate. Take the pup for a good walk before the flight not only to tire her out but also so she can potty. It is only a short flight but if she gets thirsty ask for ice cubes to give to her.

I used a kitty kennel to bring Gnash back home with me, easily stowed under your legs.
