Traveling with Pets
Pet Friendly Airlines
Click here for a list of pet-friendly airlines that let pets travel in the passenger cabin.
You may need a certificate from your veterinarian, usually dated no more than 10 days prior to your trip, that confirms your dog is healthy. Temperatures at your departure and arrival cities can also affect whether your pet may travel.
Stay At Home Options
Professional pet-sitters can come to your home and feed, walk and play with your dog and some will even stay overnight. They often spend about 35 minutes per visit, according to Pet Sitters International. Visit http://www.petsit.com/ for details or to locate a pet-sitter in your area. Provide the telephone number where you can be reached as well as numbers for a local contact and your veterinarian.
