We’re here to help you avoid stressful and unexpected situations for your upcoming trip.

1. Prepare Your Dog’s Documentation

Just like how humans carry important travel documents, it’s a good idea to organize and carry your dog’s travel documents as well. For example, when traveling internationally, you may need health records for yourself and for your pooch. We recommend that you bring several copies in case airport officials may choose to keep the original documents, which could be a problem if they are requested again at a later date or on another leg of the trip. It also wouldn’t hurt to carry a digital copy on your mobile device, too!

2. Check and Recheck Airline Pet Policies Before Buying Tickets

Why? Because some airlines make policy changes without prior notice, and if you’re unaware about the changes you may run into a headache when you arrive at the airport. Nobody wants to start a vacation off on the wrong paw.

5. Study the Local Culture if Traveling to a Foreign Country

Not all countries see dogs equally. Some countries have harsh restrictions, perhaps even limiting specific types of dogs. We highly recommend doing research on your destination to see if they have a list of prohibited breeds and any other dog-related info.
