Nervous about Flying Your Puppy?

The most common concern I hear is "will my puppy be safe if I decide to use the flight option?". While this is a justified fear for many, the answer is yes it is perfectly safe. The live animal location of the plane is temperature controlled and monitored by the airline staff. Not all flights accommodate to live animal cargo, but most of the time we are able to find a flight as long as we are flying to an international airport. There are many rules and regulations that apply to live animal cargo. Some of those include the temperatures at time and location of departure and arrival. Temps have to stay within 20°-85° or they will not fly your puppy, we will have to find another flight or another day to fly if this happens. Other rules and regulations include the TSA approved crate (that is yours to keep) and required paperwork from my vet confirming the breed, a health certificate confirming the puppy is healthy and free of any parasites/worms/health concerns, and an acclimation letter confirming the puppy is safe to travel to temperatures between 20°-85°. I am always happy to discuss the process of flying your puppy, feel free to call or text me anytime!
