There are certain pet restrictions for taking a pet dog to fly with you during your next trip. The fees or costs associated with it can vary as well. Below are some of the most common fees for traveling with your pet dog:
If you want your pet dog to stay in the aircraft’s cabin with you, then you would probably be charged from around a hundred to a hundred and fifty dollars just so that you can do this. You are also required to buy a pet carrier that is airline-compliant as well. This may cost you from about thirty up to even hundreds of dollars.
This is if you pet is small enough to be inside a carrier during the flight. This is the most convenient way to travel via plane, especially if you are bringing a small dog with you. Many major airlines are accepting this set up, but be prepared to pay, again, as previously mentioned, about a hundred to a hundred fifty dollars for a one way domestic flight.
- Make sure you call the airline and make a reservation if you will be brining a small dog with you.
- The pet carrier needs to be compliant with aircraft standards, meaning, it should have a waterproof bottom, good ventilation, and it should also be secured as well.
On the other hand, if you are going to fly your dog in the cargo, expect to also pay about a hundred, or maybe even up to thousands of dollars. However, there are some organizations that are against traveling with your dog and putting them in the cargo, unless it is really necessary.
Because of this, many people opt to travel with their pet via car, or simply hire a dog sitter. This is because this will be a much cheaper option compared to the fees associated with bringing your pet along with you in a plane.
