Airlines that ship

I know not many of the breeders here ship, but to those who do or even those who have received their puppies by air, what airline did you use, and how did you feel about the service?

I'm contemplating bring Napa home to meet the family, but he's too big to come with me in the cabin- unless I can get him categorized as a service dog-- *side note: does therapy count as service*--

So, never the less, I'm trying to see what the best way would be to get him back to RI, and if anyone suggests trying this with a 7 mo old puppy? This wasn't the plan for Christmas. Anthony was supposed to take care of him, but now we're not so sure it would work. Push comes to shove, he'll take care of him. But I'd still like to investigate this. I really would like my family to meet my pride and joy!!!

Most airlines ship, Continental has heated and air areas for the dogs and puppies though. It would cost you about 170.00 for ticket then you need crate not a wire one either, and he has to have a health certificate also.

Most do fine shipping I'm sure some have heard or have story or two they could tell. I have never had a bad experience yet, not saying they don't happen. Anyway look at what airlines fly out of your area and fly into the area you are going to then go from there. Make sure you tell them you will be flying with a pet and most will want the size of crate.
Glad you posted this I thought all airlines were 10 pounds and under, Thanks Jac.
