In January we are flying for the first time with our dog in the cabin. I'm nervous. Has anyone else done this? Any recommendations? Use doggy downers? I'll be thankful for any advice.

I've flown with my cat, but never a dog. If the dog is nervous you should go to the vet and get some pills.

I haven't, but I know my folks flew with poodles before I was born & they did tranquilize!

Leave them at home if at all possible with someone you trust. If not I hope it's a small dog.

Check with airline for rules. Speak to your vet if there is anything he can give her. What if the dog barks the whole time? What if someone has allergies? What if dog gets sick? You have to consider these things.

Thanks. I have done most of that. Pepper doesn't bark. I wouldn't want to be jerk to fellow passengers though.

I've flown with my cat once. The vet gave me a relaxer to give her for the flight. No problems.

Don't be a douchebag and bring your animal in the cabin - or anywhere else for that matter. Keep your pets at home where they belong.

wow. harsh . most pets are fine in the cabin. I'm going to share your poll so hopefully others can weigh in!

I actually agree. Some people (including myself) are very allergic to dogs and other animals. Being stuck in an airplane next to one is not my idea of a good time.

That occured to me. I had only heard of cat allergies, not dog. I was going to google it.
