Flying with your dog or pet has risen 300% since 2006. Understanding the Airline Pet Policies (which vary AND change) for pets flying in the cabin or riding as cargo plus the required paperwork, carrier and crate requirements (and exactly where is the airport pet pee area?) can be daunting.
Flying With A Dog is our attempt to pull together informational resources, so you can plan a great adventure with your best friend and minimize risk and hassle associated with pet air travel. That being said, there is no substitute for YOU doing your do diligence in contacting the airline directly and confirm your plan. It is your family member that will be riding under the seat in front of you or as cargo and your responsibility—and we mean no disrespect to any airline, but assume they will be of no help if you don’t know a rule or forget something. Your babies well-being on this plane ride is completely up to you. You can review individual airline pet injuries and deaths month by month, or airline by airline in the Pet Incident Report to be reminded of what can happen. This is another reason that we strongly believe in quality Pet Insurance. So flying with your dog is an amazing adventure, just be smart about it, research, plan, confirm with the airline and enjoy.
