Soft Sided Carrier
- Depending on the airline there are only a certain number of dogs per flight. I am a huge fan of flying Delta Airlines because of the courtesy of the flight attendants while traveling with a pet. But Delta allows 4 pets in the main cabin and 2 in first class.
- Maximum carry on kennel dimensions can differ and so can the dimensions of the underseat compartments. Just because you purchase an “airline approved” does not necessarily mean it will be able to be used on all aircraft.
Potty Pads & Ziploc Bags
The one thing I was grateful for was that the little guy was taught to drink out of a bottle. This made it very easy and convenient as I would just pull it out, open the zipper slightly and he would drink. I purchased the LIXIT Natural Wide Mouth Water Bottle for Pets .
I would highly suggest if you plan on doing any traveling with your shih tzu to teach them to drink out of water bottle. Not only can you easily hydrate your pet on a plane, but if you are traveling with a crate in the back of the car they are easy to attach to the crate and keep your pet hydrated and dry!
