    Can rescue dogs travel by plane?

    I adopted a dog a month ago, and despite the efforts of the trainer, he has adapted to the new living environment. I want to take him to Hawaii to travel and want to use this trip as a compensation for his bad experience. But I am worried that he can't adapt to the plane. Can you give me some advice?

    Walt - acclimating your pet to its carrier is one of the most important things a pet owner can do. More information on how to do that here: https://www.pettravel.com/blog/index.php/what-you-must-do-before-traveling-with-a-pet/. There is also a lot of information about flying a pet in the cargo hold here: https://www.pettravel.com/news-airline-pet-travel.cfm. Hawaii has some strict requirements for importing a pet. You can find them here: https://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Hawaii.cfm.

    Most airports prevent dogs from entering the airport or aircraft unless they are placed in a special animal section, but if you have a personal airplane, I do not think that the dogs have a problem with the flight.

    Unaccompanied dogs can fly as air cargo so dealings would be with your airline's cargo department. Many airlines will require that an agent book the transport in this case. Also, if the dogs are headed for the EU or some other countries, additional requirements will apply.
