How to Travel With Your Pets
When booking a flight with your pet, book a non-stop flight whenever possible to avoid the stress of having to change planes. Make the reservations for you and your pet at the same time because airlines often limit how many pets are allowed on each flight.
Tip: For extensive information on airline pet travel policies contact your airline or one of the advertisers on this page.
If you’re planning to fly overseas, make sure your dog has the necessary paperwork specific to your destination’s customs laws. Pet immigration laws are specific to each country, but one way to help the process go more smoothly is to create a pet folder , which is a collection of all identifying and required documents for entering a given country.
Tip: Check with your locals Customs office for -specific pet transportation rules, and you should be able to obtain the necessary forms online.
Preparing for the flight
First, visit the veterinarian as almost every airline requires documentation from a veterinarian that your pet is in good health before it can board a flight.
