The following article provides plenty of tips for flying safely with your dog. The authors recommend to reconsider flying with brachycephalic breeds such as Bulldogs and Pugs. In some cases, however, you may have no other choice, for example if you move to another country. For international moves it may be worth investing in the services of a good pet relocation company, which will take care of everything related to the move of your dogs and give you all the advice you need.

Always inform the pet relocation company or airline personnel that your dog is a Bulldog and insist on the fact that special care should be taken to protect him against heat and cold.

A good boarding kennel, pet sitting or home sitting service may be an alternative to taking your Bulldog with you on vacation.

Airlines are required to report any incidents relative to the transport of animals to the Department of Transportation. Events to be reported include owner complaints and situations in which an animal was lost, injured, or killed during transport.

The Department of Transportation, in turn, will notify consumers of such occurrences, contact the United States Department of Agriculture, and work with the airlines to improve employee training on the air transport of animals. Passengers will also be informed under what conditions their animals will be shipped.

According to the Air Transport Association, over 500,000 animals are shipped via the air every year. Approximately 1% of the shipments encounter problems including transport in unapproved kennels, missed flights, lost pets, and animals' death.

Airline travel can be difficult for your pet. If it is possible, you may want to consider having a dog sitter or boarding facility take care of your dog while you are gone. If you are going to take your pet, the following recommendations will help you arrive safely at your destination.
