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!!!

Yes, 2 wouldn't be good. But we've already made the decision to wait until at least after Christmas. I was hoping to avoid Continental. They don't have very direct flights home.

It's just an idea, one I should start looking into if I want to do that. But thanks for the advice! It was very thankful!
Thanks for those stories! Thank you for making me realize how grave this decision is. He flew Continental before. He did just fine. A little nervous coming out of the crate, but I'm sure that was because of the weird place he was in and not being greeted by those he knew.

I found a flight that goes from SFO to Providence that only stops in Newark. It was only a 7 hr flight. So, that might be a possibility.
Thanks for all the advice!

This obviously isn't the best situation. I'm currently supposed to be home for a week and a half, two weeks. But I took Napa home, I would probably increase that. He's gotten really good about going out to "do business," so by 7 months he should be fully house broken.

Thanks for all the advice, and for giving me something to think about!
