Airline Approved Pet Carrier For Cabin Travel - Soft Crate For Dogs And Cats By…
My husband and I are going to be flying Southwest in 2 weeks — going from Michigan to California. We will be traveling with our 11 pound Shih Tzu. I returned a medium Sherpa pet carrier because the dimension was too high — though Roscoe it into it very well. Tried the small Sherpa bag and it’s too small. Concerned about what carrier to use that will enable accepted without any trouble. I want my little dog (11 Pounds) to be comfortable. My biggest fear is getting to airport and being told he isn’t allowed because he’s too big for their carrier. Yet he’s too big for the small Sherpa carrier and the medium Sherpa carrier that he fits in into high for the accepted measurements. Any suggestions on what to do? I’ve looked at so many online posts and see so many different opinions. I usually fly Delta (previously Northwest) but they will not allow Shih Tzus on their flights in cabin. The online website says no snub nosed dogs allowed due to shallow breathing issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Zahava, Some info that my breeder gave me when traveling with my dog. Don’t feed too much if you are traveling in the early am. Get a cup of crushed ice with a lid at the airport so when your dog is thirsty she can eat the ice. Ice doesn’t go through the dog as quickly as water. I bring a kong filled with peanut butter or some kibble so I can give it to my dog during take off and landing to help with her ears. I also purchased a small 5″ battery/usb operated fan (O2Cool) that I put near her if it’s hot in the plane. I also put her in the carrier often before the trip so she could get used to it. Good luck and safe travels!
