|The Roundabout Tote is designed for dogs up to 16 pounds.|
Vacation season is upon us, which means some pets are flying with their owners to destinations near and far. If this sounds like you and your pet, let them travel in comfort and style with products from the Posh Puppy Boutique.
Your first—and most vital—step is taking your pet to its veterinarian at least two weeks before going on a trip. Be sure your pet’s vaccinations are current. Have at least three paper copies: one that travels with your pet, one you keep with you and a third (and maybe having electronic copies where you have easy access to them) in your luggage. This ensures the least amount of problems. Also be sure your pet is healthy enough to withstand the rigors of travel in an airline hold that may be pressured at an elevation of 5,000 feet, which is the pressure setting for passenger cabins.
In addition, check with your airline to ensure there are no sudden changes in its pets policy. That phrase, “subject to change without notice” can devastate your travel plans.
If you are taking your pet on the plane with you, bring a muzzle, even if your pet is safely secured in a carrier. This eliminates barking issues and inquisitive fingers from young children being suddenly stuck within reach.
Also measure your pet’s container when fully loaded to ensure it fits in the space allotted.
These first few carriers are designed for air travel by Pet Flys and Carriers.
