    Hello
    Commercial airlines are not deliberately cruel or even particularly careless when it comes to shipping dogs; they just aren't set up to deal with pets efficiently. Unless a dog is small enough to carry on board the plane, air travel is risky.
    The basic problem is that to an airline, your pet is just an especially bothersome piece of baggage. And as everyone knows, baggage slip-ups are inevitable. When a mistake means your luggage goes to Minneapolis while you go to Atlanta, you'll survive the inconvenience. But if your dog goes to the wrong city or is forgotten on a luggage carousel, it may not.
    Special rules for assistance dogs. Assistance dogs travel with their owners, in the airliner's cabin.

    Nothing to worry Jhonvomer because your pup will surely be comfortable while he's on the plane. Just make sure he has the right temperament to fly. Try to find the best pet carrier for him. Also, it's best if you call the airline ahead of time to reserve a space for your dog.

    Some great advice up there! Get him used to whatever crate you will be using beforehand so there is no added stress of a new carrier in addition to a new environment.
