Always follow up with your airline of choice to confirm current information

What if a handy list of pet airline travel tips were available in one place? That is exactly what, which began as a travel blog for a Yorkshire Terrier named Spencer by his owner, seeks to help provide. This smart little Dog Travel Guide gives a list of exactly what to expect when flying with your pet with his No Stress Travel Tips.

“If you have no choice but to fly, then prepare early,” said Dr. Melissa Finke, of TVV Decatur, in a recent article on The Village Vets. “The regulations are strict and vary significantly between airlines.” Dr. Finke pointed out most airlines will allow pets to fly with their owners in the cabin dependent on their size and weight, and if this option is not available to invest in an approved crate that can be slowly introduced before the flight.

The owner of Spencer, at based in Issaquah, Washington, says that pet owners should “always follow up with your airline of choice to confirm current information.” They added that gear is also important to prepare before making the big trip. “These items are essential when traveling with your pet,” Spencer's owner said. “There are items to take with you such as a collapsible water dish, treats, a collar and leash, flea and tick medicine, and wee wee pads.” The airline travel tips will help anyone who is flying with a pet within the United States and abroad.
