I'm not an expert, over the years I've only had a few dogs flown so take this for what it's worth!!!
If you can shell out the bucks, there are pet friendly airlines that will allow you to take the dog on board with you for the entire flight.I'm not an expert, over the years I've only had a few dogs flown so take this for what it's worth!!!
Unless your dog is a service dog, he'd probably have to ride in a special cargo area of the plane.
:sun: :brrrwinter: It's been about 3-1/2 years since I had Faith flown in from PA (it was April) ... even then it was a hassle because the temperature couldn't be too cold or too hot ... it has to be just right at both the departure and landing sites!!! I've read that in the summer some airlines don't even take dogs.
