My mutt has gone on several road trips, but I have never flown with him.
I have never been in a situation that required me to fly Ace, and so far when I’ve traveled long distances, I have either driven with my dog or left him home. I know at times it is unavoidable and flying a dog across country or internationally is the only option. If I ever have to do that, I will do my research in advance and still worry how my dog is being treated while down below with the baggage and out of my sight. I guess it would be like boarding your dog somewhere, you just never know how your dog is doing. Chances are she is fine, but you are never sure.
At times I wish my dog were small enough to be a carry-on. I see little dogs at the airport traveling with their owners, and I am very jealous.
So, have any of you flown with your dogs? Was it a good experience?
Email your dog-related question to me at Lindsay@thatmutt.com, and I’ll post it for others to answer.
