Bring Home Your Puppy Safe & Sound

      Hundreds of thousands of pets fly safely every year, but for many PuppySpot customers, this may be their first time experiencing pet travel. As one of the largest pet travel providers, PuppySpot understands that pet travel can be a nerve-wracking experience for both owner and pet. So, we've put together some fast facts on puppy travel to ease the minds of our new puppy parents.

      Fast Facts about Puppy Travel

      • Airline associates are specially trained to handle your pet with the utmost care.

        Many of these associates are pet owners and lovers themselves!

      • Pets are made as comfortable as possible during their journey.

        The cargo compartment in which pets travel is pressurized and temperature controlled. In fact, in many cases pets enjoy the exact same air that is circulated through the passenger cabin. Puppies are also able to have a favorite toy or blanket inside their crate as a comfort aid during the flight.

      • Airlines put temperature restrictions in place to keep travelling animals safe.

        While the cargo area your pet travels in is temperature controlled and pressurized, the tarmac area outside the plane can be very hot or cold depending on outside weather conditions. To keep your pet comfortable and safe throughout their journey, airlines will not allow pets to fly if temperatures at the origin or destination airports are below or above a certain level. While procedures can vary by airline, air conditioned vehicles and holding rooms are often utilized to keep pets comfortable before and after their flights.

      • Only a miniscule percentage of pets that fly experience an injury, loss or death.

        Most pet-related travel incidents are related to pets who already had a medical condition, or were kenneled in an unsatisfactory crate. Millions of pets travel safely in the cargo compartment each year.
