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!!!

Can't say that I would do it either. I'd be afraid to make that choice and have a bad experience on the way there knowing you have to put the dood back on for the return. It would drive me nuts thinking my guy was "down there" not knowing how it's going for him. I don't have the control or the ability to check on him for 7 hours?? I could not do it. I could be separated for that time, no problem there, but not knowing if he was doing ok or having a terrible time? And having strangers who may not neccessarily have the same amount of care and respect for my pet that I would show an animal? Too risky. I fear it would be too much, even if it is just my perhaps irrational fear of fearing the worst. I think you have to plan for that. What ever can go wrong will go wrong. And you need to be prepared to suffer those consequences. I don't live in a bubble, but I stay away from things out of my control when it comes to my dood.

Any consideration given to driving? There is a whole lot of things to see. I say follow Dinah's advice!!!!
