How to Fly Domestically With Your Dog
Find an Airline willing to transport your dog.If your dog is large, he will have to ride via cargo. Some airlines will not allow certain breeds such as Pit Bulls and Rottweilers. Make sure you do this in advance.
Consider the length of your trip.Will it be over or less than a week? The longer your trip, the more supplies you will need. Also, if you are staying at a hotel, make arrangements for your dog to stay at a pet-friendly hotel.
Make sure you have an FAA approved crate for your dog to travel in.Also, take your pet to the vet for a physical checkup before the flight, so your dog is cleared to fly. He also needs health documents recently updated and all his shots to board the plane. Bring a copy of his medical records.
Make a list of supplies (some suggested at the bottom).This list should be helpful, though you should make sure you take anything else you feel necessary.
Take your dog for a checkup before your trip.That way, you know she is healthy. Sometimes, the vet will prescribe a mild tranquilizer to keep your dog calm during the flight. Have the vet also make sure the dog's micro chip is working if he has one.
Feed your dog in about four hours advance so he will become less likely to eliminate or vomit during the flight.This may still happen, though. About two hours after that, give your dog a long walk and allow him to go to the bathroom.
Prepare the crate.You are getting on your flight in an hour. Your Dog's crate should be airline approved. Put layers of very absorbent padding on the bottom of his crate and attach a pail of frozen water to the side of his cage. If it isn't frozen, it will spill during loading. Also, put a chew toy in his crate.
Don't get your dog over-excited.The drive to the airport should be as calm as possible. At the airport, calmly take your dog through security and put him with the rest of your luggage, or where ever you are directed to put him.
If you can't see your dog being loaded onto the plane, ask the counter agent to call the ramp to make sure he is safely on board.Also, ask a flight attendant to make sure that your dog is unloaded from cargo after the plane lands. After Landing, ask again so you are certain your dog is off of the plane.
After your dog is out of cargo, make sure that he is healthy and not injured.If it is okay, change his pee pads. Stroke him for a minute and crate him again. Then treat him and leave as calmly as possible.

QuestionWe live in Italy and we're moving to another country. Does the dog need a passport? Or just up-to-date shots?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou will need to get both. Proof of shots is required to procure your pet passport.Thanks!
QuestionDoes he need a passport to go to Cancun, Mexico from San Francisco, California?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYour dog will not need a passport, but I would check with the airline you plan to fly with on documentation your dog will need. Also check local laws in Cancun to see if they require different documentation. Some places require a quarantine for foreign animals entering a country/state, so check local laws.Thanks!
