Traveling on an airplane with a puppy.

1 comment

How do you guys approach flying with an "energetic" puppy? She's not very well-behaved so I'm looking into giving her benadryl. Any suggestions?

Hello!

To make sure I understand your question correctly, are you bringing your dog in the cabin with you on a trip?

I've traveled a few times with both my dogs on an airplane. One time I brought my Oreo to Sweden in which was a long flight, and another time was when I moved cross country from New York City to Seattle.

My recommendation to you (that worked for me) has been to:

1) get less sleep the night before the flight. Make sure your energetic puppy is playing for a long time at night time, this will make your puppy super tired. You'll be tired yourself for staying up longer with your pup, but both of you may be able to catch up some sleep on the flight.

2) Also, before you leave your home, make sure you go for a long walk with your puppy to avoid any accident in his or her bag.

3) Just before you have checked in at the airport, you can take your puppy outside again to go to the bathroom one last time before going through security.

4) bring a Kong that you already filled with peanut butter or something else that your dog loves, this will keep him busy for 20-30 minutes.

5) Bring toys and a small bone for your pup.

 

Hopefully, this will help a little bit.

Good luck and Safe Travels!

Etta

    Many canines coaches are using target sticks which can be conveyed helpfully. The canine is trained to touch and after that to take after the tip of the stick. At the factor when the dogs will unreservedly take after the stick. You can lead the canine anywhere you want it to go, rather than pulling, push, lift, or persuade it. You can center of attention on the canine into the auto, onto a prepping table, over hops. Or into the right role for or stacking. http://dogstrainingtools.com/2018/04/30/target-stick-dog-tricks/

    Hey everyone! My dog's name is Burt. He is a 3 1/2 year old Poodle/Yorkie mix. Burt was diagnosed with epilepsy this year. Due to his seizures he had to be put on a medication 2x/day. He hasn't had a seizure in almost 4 months now. Unfortunately, due to his needs we lost 4 separate boarders. The usual places we tried to board him during vacations said, due to insurance reasons they would not be able to board him. We have a vacation coming up overseas and we cant take Burt with us so my family is flying up from California to take care of him. I'm wondering if people know of local dog boarding in Seattle that will board him and give him his medication. Thanks and enjoy this picture of my dog Burt!
