Tips For Flying With Your Dog: Did You Know Snub-Nosed Dogs Can Fly?
Did you know that a lot of airlines do not allow snub-nosed dogs to fly under the plane, but instead will allow them in-cabin? I always recommend that you double-check the in-cabin pet requirements & talk with your vet beforehand to make sure they feel it is safe for your dog to fly!
The official name for a "snub-nose dog" is a brachycephalic dog, which is defined as a short-muzzled dog with a flattened face.
Here is a short list of some brachycephalic breeds:

What I Do When Flying With A Snub-Nosed Dog:
Talked To My Vet
The first time I flew with my French Bulldog I talked to our vet before flying.
I make sure to always travel with pet CBD for Hudson. I use liquid pet CBD for him and it helps relax him. He doesn't always need it. There are other great options if you don't feel CBD is a good fit for your dog.
Ask For Ice
I make sure to ask for ice when I am at my seat. This helps keep Hudson cool if he gets hot. Keeping your dog comfortable and cool is important to help with their breathing.
Check-In On My Dog
I make sure to always check in on him. I check in on him by putting my hand through the top of the carrier and placing it on his back. I check that he is breathing normally and is comfortable in his carrier. You know your dog!
