Shipping dogs what you need to know

Shipping dogs and the costs involved

The flight is around 200-300 for a dog shipping in a size 200 or 300 crate. Any dog bigger than about 60lbs the costs may go up.


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
http://www.revivalanimal.com/Vari-Ke...a-Fashion.html

You also need bowls that fits on the front and I just get a travel kit
http://www.revivalanimal.com/Airline-Travel-Kit.html

I also love these beds, they are cheap and perfect for flying
http://www.revivalanimal.com/Midwest...-Pet-Beds.html

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.

Super great thread Lisa... hope this helps allot of folks out... I know I had a bit of the run around to get Viper to you.. It was my 1st shipping on a plane.. I've had a couple of pups come by ground and they have all gotten here but they werent 100% there when they did get here.. its allot of stress on them especially if its a long trip.. you all have to remember when ground shipping that they are making multiple stops & pick ups so it takes a while.. Keep the thread going as im sure i will need it down the road.. also try to incorporate some internation shipping information if possible as well..

I do not think they will not ship if any part of the trip is over 80 degrees, but you would know better, I have never done it, just what I have heard.

American Airlines as of Nov. 2011 no longer ships bulldogs, Amstaffs, or APBTs. Continential will only ship Amstaffs & APBTs under 6 mos old.

I've been trying to figure out a good white and brindle breed w/ cropped ears to use as Indie's breed. May have to ship her if we breed her. It'd be easier to ship semen, but less accurate and efficient, IMHO. This is a good thread, something I was planning on asking about.

I personally prefer ground shipping. Cajun pet express to be exact. I had a womderful experience with them shipping flex to me. I got calls and txts daily to update me on flex until he was delivered. I would recommend them to anyone and they love working with bully breeds.

Does anyone know where I can find an accurate list of the airlines that allow bully breed dogs? Or a list of the ones that banned them? Either way should I still say she is a vizsla mix?

She will be almost 5 months old at the time of our flight...

@joelito15

It depends where you from, I'm from Europe (Amsterdam The Netherlands )
I've make contact with a company for details enz...and they mailed me back with requirements i need,
Made a copy and translate it with google.....

You asked us to import requirements for sending a puppy of America to the Netherlands. The requirements look like this:


1. European health certificate, not older than 14 days.

2. The health certificate must be by the USDA. Legalized

3. microchip

4. Rabies statement vet

For a flight with KLM serve pups at least 10 weeks old. By most other airlines are accepted puppies from 8 weeks.

To 12 weeks, they may travel on the rabies protection of the mother. The following is an own vaccination required, followed by a

waiting period of 30 days associated with the development of antibodies.



I hope to have informed you sufficiently.


Again it depends where you from, this is for the EU.
Hope you can do something with it

OK been a long time lurker and now have a serious dilemma. We are a military family and besides having to deal with the breed ban in military housing we are now transferring to Japan. We have jumped through all the hoops of getting his medical done and rabies test and even got the vet to put on his paperwork that he is a Lab mix. Called the airline to get a cost estimate and told them that he is a lab mix but kinda looks like a pit(he is a 3 going on 4 yr old brindle). They immediately told me I need an IATA 82 crate ($600-$900) and if it goes over 100lbs total weight he would have to go cargo and that would cost another $1500 We have an XL petco plastic crate that I have changed out the plastic bolts for actual metal nuts and bolts that weighs right at about 28lbs. His last vet visit he weighed in at 77lbs. Now mind you he is starting to look like a bowling pin when he sits down since we got him fixed so he could stand to lose a few pounds the little fatty. We told the airline(united) he has Lab Mix on his paperwork and they said if the handlers see him and decide he looks like a pitbull they won't ship him unless he is in one of those metal IATA 82 crates. This is our first time dealing with this and don't really wanna give up our furbaby but I can't afford $2000+. Does anyone have any insight on this and ways to go about it? Thanks so much for the help. We don't leave until Aug so I have a lil time to prepare.

Can't help with the "is it a Pit Bull, is it NOT" thing, but shipping overseas can be a logistical nightmare, especially if you are dealing with connecting flights, plane changes, regulations in different countries, timing of vet exams and the possibility that you might have to get a health certificate from the state vet. I once used a pet shipping company to take care of all that when I had one to ship to Poland, and it was worth the $300 charge. The timing of all the paperwork is something they helped with too as some of it has an expiration date. Perhaps they can help determine the best way to deal with all the concerns you are going to have AND if they think the dog CAN get through as a Lab cross.

It's bad enough without having a dog that they might see as a Pit Bull -- all will be for naught if they "see" a Pit Bull. The weight thing is going to be a concern too.
