Requirements To Fly With Your Pet In-Cabin

Wondering if your pet is eligible to fly in-cabin with you? See below for more info on requirements & tips that worked for us when we traveled with Hudson!

Requirements ⬇️

✈️ Carrier Must Fit Under The Seat

  • Check your airline & flight for carrier dimension. Carrier must fit under the seat in front of you. You can have a hard or soft carrier. The dimensions for a hard carrier or soft carrier will be different.

✈️ Dog Must Fit Comfortably In Carrier

  • Check that your dog is comfortable in the carrier. That your dog can lay down and turn around. Along with that make sure there is ventilation on the carrier.

✈️ Documentation

  • Check what documentation you might need. Some airlines require documents such as health certificates or rabies vaccination.

Tips ⬇️ ( that worked for us! )

✈️ Pet CBD

  • If your dog gets stressed or anxious on the plane bring pet CBD! Make sure to have your pup try it a few times before flying and make sure to ask your vet!

✈️ Get Your Pup Comfortable In Their Carrier

  • Before you travel make the carrier a happy place. Give them a few treats in it and use it a couple times to get them use to it.

✈️ Before Boarding

  • Before you board your plane put your pup in the carrier with their head out the top. Let them get comfortable inside and lay down on their own!

✈️ If Your Dog Gets Anxious

  • Put your hands through the top of the carrier and lightly lay it on them. This will hopefully help calm them down and help put them to sleep!
