Nanda & Nelson Posted March 26, 2013 Report Share Posted March 26, 2013 In about a year from now, my partner and I will relocate to Europe for about 1,5 year. I am originally from the Netherlands, and for my career - we are going to live / work in Europe for a while. Obviously, we are bringing Nelson with us - now the thing is, I am (already) stressed out about having to put him in the plane. There are more bad then good stories on the internet (thought that kinda is the way the internet works I guess). We will be taking a direct flight in March with KLM to Amsterdam, a 9 hour flight. From what I've read so far, they are the best with dogs. Nelson has a bed, not a crate. We tried crate training him for the first 6 months we had him, but he would never ever go in there, we read all the books etc - thats not what this post is about. We will buy the crate in a few months, so he can get used to it. He doesn't have any separation anxiety, but he hates loud noises, if anything in the car moves around while he is in there it spooks the *** out of him! Does anyone here have experience with flying dogs? I am especially interested in hearing experience from people who have flown their dog overseas. How long was the flight you took your dog on? And what was his/her behaviour like? What airline did you use? And what crate? Sorry for all the questions, I am trying to educate myself properly and make sure that this is not only going to be fun for me but also for him!
