      Pet-Friendly Air Travel

      Air travel can be scary for first time fliers, whether they walk on two legs or four! Not only is it safe for dogs to travel this way, but it's one of the fastest and most reliable ways to get your puppy home. While not all planes are equipped to safely transport pets and other animals, those that are have a special compartment under the plane. Different from cargo, this compartment is pressurized and temperature-controlled for comfort.

      Most PuppySpot puppies travel to their forever homes by plane. We understand air travel can be scary for first time fliers, whether they walk on two legs or four! Not only is it safe for dogs to travel this way, but it's one of the fastest and most reliable ways to get your puppy home.

      Preparing for your pup

      Food & Water

      Puppies will have water available (sometimes frozen to avoid spilling), but generally aren't fed during their trip. By 8+ weeks-old, most puppies are able to go 8 or more hours between meals without any issue.

      Be Flexible 

      We'll confirm your puppy's travel plans a couple of days before his or her scheduled flight. This may feel like short notice, but we do this to make sure your puppy is healthy before arriving home to you by seeing a licensed veterinarian a few days prior.

      Call Ahead

      Just like human air travel, puppies' planes can be delayed or arrive early. To avoid long waits, we recommend calling the airline ahead of time to make sure your pup's plane is on schedule.

      Fees

      PuppySpot charges a $399 flat-rate fee for all puppies traveling home by pet-friendly air programs. This fee covers your puppy's health certificate required by both us and the airlines to show your puppy is healthy, your puppy's FAA-approved travel crate and the cost of their flight.

      Our Promise

      PuppySpot will make sure your puppy arrives safe, healthy and as quickly as possible.

      Special Travel Options

      Some puppies, like "Snub-Nosed" breeds, have special travel requirements. Not sure if your pup will need special accommodations? Check his or her profile page for our special travel icon, or ask your Puppy Concierge. Once you've selected your puppy, our dedicated Travel team will work with both you and your puppy's breeder to schedule the best accommodations for your puppy's needs.
