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!!!

I think it depends on the dog - I have a friend who got a puppy and had to have it shipped, the puppy did Not do well , Tara had to crawl in the crate with her arms to pull the poor sweetie out - she has just about glued herself to the back of her crate. Had another friend who used to take his shepperd home every christmas and he did fine

I would definitely check into seeing if you can get a non-stop flight if at all possible
