Pet Air Travel


Yes, you can take your German Shepherd with you.

Friendly pet air travel has recently become more and more popular as pet owners have demanded better travel options for their fur kids. Traditional airlines treat your dog like luggage. Storing them in the cargo hold is considered by most airlines as acceptable pet travel. Kennels or dog sitters are other options.

Although is is rare, traditional travel with pets on airlines is not without risk. According to the New York Times, from June - August, 2006, 12 animals (mostly dogs) died, 3 were injured and 4 were lost during air travel.

"...until I get my own private plane, my large dogs will not fly... because it's not very controlled in the areas where they put the large dogs."
~Cesar Millan (June 2007)

But, now you can take your pet with you and knowing they are well taken care of.

Pet Travel Airlines

Now you have the option to fly with your animal, or book your pet a "seat" on a pet only airline. This will ensure that your dog is not subjected to fluctuations in temperature, jet fuel fumes, and changes in air pressure.

Pet Friendly Travel

Next time your destination is too far to travel by car, consider one of the following options:

Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.
~Dave Barry

Pet Travel

As more pet travel services become available, this list will expand as I find more resources. Dogs are members of the family. Rest assured that you can take your dog with you on vacation, instead of having to leave your faithful pet in the care of a kennel.
