schrevolution Posted March 16, 2014 Report Share Posted March 16, 2014 Hi, I'm wondering if others have had to ship there dogs because of moving, etc. I'm going to have to do this with Ziggy roundtrip because my family live way to far to drive (26hrs) and it gets way too hot for him to fly at the same time as me during the summer. He'll be over a year old when he has to go, but I was reading a little about fear stages and the article I was reading mentioned not shipping a dog during this age because it could be traumatic. To be honest, if I could do something less stressful I would, but I can't see kenneling him for five weeks. He'll also end up arriving before I am able to get home, maybe a few days before me depending on flight schedules so he'll be in the midst of my family and two very old (15 years) family dogs. I was curious about others' experiences, did you find your dogs were seriously rattled after being on a plane? I think once I get there and he realizes he hasn't been abandoned he'll be ok. I don't really know what I could do to make this easier for him, but I'm open to any suggestions others may have of things that worked for them.
