There will be a few limitations when traveling with him, but our tips will help you prepare.
Check the Airline’s Rules
Traveling by plane isn’t extremely comfortable for humans OR pets. If your pet isn’t small enough to be carried on or taken in the cabin, be prepared for extra steps and concerns. First, check the airline’s rules for bringing your four-legged friend on board. American Airlines, for example, will not accept brachycephalic or snub-nosed dogs, due to possible breathing complications.
Book as Early as Possible
Very few pets are accepted on each flight, so book as early as you can. Also, be sure your dog can get on the flight before you book your own tickets.
Get the Vet’s OK
Before taking off, take your pooch to the vet for a checkup. Make sure all vaccinations are up-to-date and be sure to get a health certificate within 10 days of your flight. It’s mandatory for air travel.
