    It is quite expensive and you end up losing the dog for 6 months (quarantine) and then there are shipping costs (crates etc) jabs for this and that.

    This is quite useful - you can avoid quarantine. You even class your dog as 'excess baggage':Rofl1:

    I guess that would mean training your dog to stay still, be quiet and act like a bag!

    Agh!


    Flying a dog to the States:Doh:

    We met a couple last year who'd done just that, http://thelovefamily.co.uk/ , really nice couple who took thier RV and dog to the States for a year.

    One thing I do remember Chris saying was he'd flown back to France then driven back (or some such) into the UK as it substantially reduced cost.

    Keep the G positive

    If you do decide to fly your dog, please keep the G Force positive.

    I suspect the P2 is actually an instructor, as the guy in the left hand seat appears to black / grey out with the G loading. From the shape of the rear window, before it’s obscured by the dog, I’d say it’s a Cessna 172, probably 1970’s / 80’s era.

    I know a few people who fly with their dogs. Some even have ear defenders for the dogs.
