Since I recently had a friend fly my new puppy to Canada from Switzerland in-cabin, many of you asked how I prepare my dogs for airline travel. Even if you don’t have plans to fly a puppy anytime soon, you’ll benefit from hearing how I train them to be great travelers in two phases. Moreover, there’s a lot of red tape and regulations around in-cabin flying with puppies and dogs that vary from airline to airline and country to country. I read the fine print for you and I’m sharing how to avoid expensive – and upsetting – airport snafus when flying with your dog.

In the episode you'll hear:

  • How to prepare puppies to fly in-cabin confidently.
  • The three parts to puppy flight preparation.
  • That each airline has different pet travel requirements.
  • What to expect when checking your dog in at the airport.
  • My in-cabin pet carrier recommendations.
  • The best crate for flying dogs in cargo or the hold.
  • My two dog training projects to prepare dogs and puppies for air travel.
  • Why Crate Games makes traveling with your dog so much easier.
