We hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We traveled cross-country for the holidays and I wanted to tell you how taking Riley on the airplanes went! I know that traveling with smalls dogs via plane has had a lot of rumors and negativity lately without a lot of actual information on the topic. So I am going to use our experience as we travel from California to New York to bring some more information to you!
Once we boarded, we put Riley down at my feet. The crate fit perfectly! I think Rye knew that it was time to sleep because he curled up and went right to sleep. He slept through take off and as far as I could tell, only moved to get into a better sleeping position! He did such a good job.
Once we landed, we didn’t have time to take Riley to the pet relief area on the other side of the airport or take him outside and go back through security. I figured that since we took an overnight flight, it was the same thing as Riley sleeping through the night without going potty.
