You are going to need a health cert from a vet that runs about $40-60 you also need them to make a statement of acclimation for this time of year saying the dog can fly in temps from 25 degrees and up or what ever you vet wants to say. This is for winter shipping, you also may need it if it's going to be warm. Most airlines will not fly dogs when it's going to be above 85 degrees. There are some carriers that it does not matter because they are 100% climate control. Continental does ship in hot weather I am not sure of any others.

Crate size 200 will fit a puppy or small adult that is smaller than 17" at the shoulders
Crate size 300 will fit most APBT adults that are 19-20" and under

Then you need a crate like a size 200 on the list it is Med for about $48

You also need bowls that fits on the front and I just get a travel kit

I also love these beds, they are cheap and perfect for flying
Midwest Quiet Time Pet Beds | Revival Animal Health

They are very picky on the crate you get so don't try and get a cheap one from walmart with plastic snaps or plastics pins it needs to be screws like the link I posted or they will turn you away. You also have to include a zip lock of food to go on top of the crate. They will not feed them but in the chance you have a delay because of weather they need to be able to give food and water and why you have to include food and bowls.


I ship dogs and puppies all the time, I just shipped a dog last week from NM to CA and the flight was $200 for a dog in a size 200 crate and the health cert was $60 and the crate 60 after shipping. So you can see it's not cheap and a lot has to go into it but IMO it's the best way to get them across the country.

The best airlines are American Airlines they have been the cheapest the last several times I have flown dogs. Other airlines are Delta, Alaskan Airlines, or continental. Some of these airlines do not take APBT's so see the below what to do.

When you get your health cert you should say it is a different breed many airlines have breed restrictions. My black dogs fly as great Dane puppies, my white dogs fly as Dogo's, and my red dogs fly as Vizsla. You do not want to fly them as pit bulls. Other breeds you can use are labs, black mouth curs, or catahoula leopard dog.

If you have question about shipping a dog post here and I will try and answer it for you or PM me. I fly dogs across the country all the time so I will help where I can.
I am trying to get my pit bull to the British Virgin Islands from the bay area. San Juan is the flight hub but has a total ban on the breed so I need to fly via st Thomas or st martin. Pit bulls classified as snub nosed dogs so can't travel in temps over 75degrees with American or delta. United does not fly to Caribbean. all flights arrive in afternoon when it is always over 75. At this point will travel from anywhere in USA to get her to BVI - anyone taken pit bull to islands??

My brother wants to take in my foster. He lives in Philly, I'm down here in Houston. I'm flying American Airlines there. We were reading on AA's site about climate control in the holding area and I believe the loading zone. But I did not see anything about climate control in the cargo area of the plane. To me that's really the most important part.

I'm assuming their planes are CC, but I wanted to double check with others here who have already used AA to ship. The flight is about 3 hours and of course I'm concerned that she will be nervous & scared. I suppose that is expected and I'm not sure there's much I can do to prevent that.

Thanks in advance!

Ok, so I know this sticky is old but its the best place to pose my questions. As most of you know, I"m looking to relocate over the next several months. That relocation could be anywhere in the Country really and I'm flying to Las Vegas next weekend for a round of panel interviews. I'm also in the running currently for a job in Ft Myers FL. Regardless, wherever I end up going at some point, I'm going to need to get the DD there as well. Clearly if it's within a day/maybe two, I'll drive and they will ride with me but Las Vegas is a whole different animal!

Anyone current on shipping policies? Recommendations on shipping vs. ground? I have found a local ground company run by 2 military men who drive non=stop between here and wherever with breaks for potty/food and it would be no more expensive for both than it would be for one. I've also considered renting an RV and driving myself with them and not having to worry about hotels and whatnot. This is all very preliminary but wanted to get some thoughts and ideas to have at least a start on how to proceed!

I have transported dogs from the south east to California for ppl. I always recommend ground shipping. I think it's a little easier on the dogs (especially ones who take car rides anyway). Key here is to find the right shipper(sounds like you have). I charged 300 a dog. If I could fit 2 pups in an adult crate from the same pick up to the same drop off I'd do them for 300. 2 adults same place to same place was 500.

I don't think airlines have changed policies much. Do not ever tell them it's an apbt or any thing off the sort. They're always "mixed breed rescues"

The issues with most airlines is the length of the dogs nose. They have lumped all bull breeds into the brachycephalic class. The biggest issues would be hot states. Delta won't put a bulldog in cargo to or from FL, I'd imagine it would be the same for Vegas.
Why don't you drive them there? You have to move your truck too right? Make a road trip of it. Find dog friendly sights to see along the way. That's what I would do.

Yeah the DD LOVE the car and are regular riders. They are always with me unless Iím going to be leaving them for an extended period of time and the weather isnít appropriate to leave them. Iíve definitely considered the road trip option, even renting an RV and towing the car so we all have more room and not have to worry about the costs of hotels along the way etc...Iím actually leaning that way. If itís FL Iíll definitely just drive hem myself. Vegas would be an RV trip if I go that route.

Itís all still very preliminary but Iím impatient so I want to be prepared and had an idea of a plan in place. Iíve run into proba before with the ďpit bullĒ thing and the ONLY place they are listed as Pit Bull mixes is on their dog licenses thanks to RB. Everywhere else theyíre exactly what you suggested. Mixed breed rescues!

Thanks for the suggestions. I have a lot of time on my hands at work to look into different options!

LeslieAK is an unknown quantity at this point
I shipped my dog to Belgium from Dover, De. I would never do that to an animal again. She was so sick. And when I picked her up, I knew I would have to find her a good home before our military time in Belgium was over. I couldn't do that to her again. It broke my heart. But to think of her alone and scared for 8 hours nonstop...i couldn't do it.
