Airline Travel

-Check the airline regulations before you plan to bring you pet with you in a small pet carrier.

Car Travel

-A pet owner needs to be concerned about not only the pet's safety but also the driver and passengers.

-Pet may become annoyed, stressed, distracted, vocal and disruptive in side a small dog carrier which could interfere with the drivers ability to operate a car safely.

-The pet's temperament during car travel is an important consideration.

-Pet's need to get out of the small dog carrier and stretch just like us humans do.

-Safety restraints or harnesses are a good idea to keep pet's where they are wanted in the car, whether the pet is allowed in the front seat or not.
