One of the things that families often forget to think about when they bring home their first fluffy, adorable puppy is what they will do when they have to travel for business or it is time for the family vacation. While it may be tempting to take your dog along with you, you should know that airlines are not known to accommodate animals as well as they do people.
The sad part is that some problems with pets occur for reasons that extend beyond what the airline may or may not have done wrong. For example, if your dog has an undiagnosed illness, the anxiety and environment of an airplane can cause it to surface. Turbulence can also be much harder on a pet than a human, in part because they don’t understand what is going on. Some people opt to sedate their dog, but that is not without risks, either.
While there are many tips for flying with your pet to make the journey safer for them, if you would rather not take the chance, the better solution is to consider dog kennels. Choosing a quality facility that will make your dog happy will be more enjoyable for them and keep you from worrying throughout the trip about whether they are safe.
