To Carry a Boston Terrier – Any Recommendations for a Airplane Dog Carrier?

999

Here is a question from Kelly asking for some recommendations for a airplane dog carrier.

She says : “I’m looking for a carryon airplane dog carrier for my 23lb Boston for an upcoming trip. Recommendations??? Also, prefer a carrier with wheels. Thank you in advance!”

Does anyone have any suggestions, experiences or recommendations?

He’ fairly large to put in a carrier that will fit under the seat.. Hope it’s not a long flight Definitely a mesh soft sided carrier

He’s 23 lbs and a thin build. This is why I am inquiring four months in advance, so I can see if it is feasible to fly with him. But to answer your question, it is a 2 hour direct flight.

Kelly Phillips

I noticed you are a flight attendant. What is the largest weight size dog that you have seen travel by air?

Jamie Jamison Mosher

I’m sorry Kelly but I retired in 2006 but the standards are that the carrier must fit under the seat……may not extend into the area by your feet & the dog should be able to stand, lay down & turn around. That pretty much narrows it down to around 20 lbs or under!

CONCERNED PEOPLE- I am NOT STORING MY DOG UNDER THE PLANE WITH THE BAGGAGE!! He would be flying in the passenger section in a 👉🏼CARRYON👈🏼 dog carrier…..thank you for helpful recommendations

Mark Hutchinson

Say … DUH!! Some people just look for drama.

I read some where some Air Lines won’t let them fly because of can have difficult breathing?????

Kelly Phillips

It is only if they are in the baggage section under the plane, Not when they are in the passenger section.

DON’T DO IT! Push face dogs die on flights in cargo MUCH MORE OFTEN!!! 😨😠

Kelly Phillips

Read the actual post!!!!!! I am bringing my dog on the plane with me in the passenger section!!

Oh good! I couldn’t read the post, it wouldn’t expand on my device. I wasn’t trying to attack you, just worried about your Boston baby and thought it might be a first trip.
