Are Dogs Allowed on Planes?
Whether a dog is allowed to travel on a plane or not has a lot to do with the airlines and the type of dog. In most cases, airlines that allow dogs to fly require that the dogs be no bigger than 20 to 25 pounds so that they will fit in a carry on crate under the seat in the plane. In most areas, dogs are no longer allowed to fly in the cargo hold of a plane for safety reasons. When booking a flight make sure you tell the airline that you have a dog. Many airlines do not book dogs over their online booking service. It’s important to tell the airline that you have a dog since many airlines limit the number of pets that can fly on a plane at a given time. If your dog fits flying guidelines but has never flown before then ask your vet clinic San Diego, CA about ways to help keep your dog calm in flight.
