Travel Tips

Making the reservations

Check availability:

Travel in Paris
  • Many airlines restrict the number of pets per flight, so make sure there is room for your four legged traveler in advance. If you are booking online, select your itinerary, call the airline to check pet availability and then go back and purchase your ticket online.
  • Decide if a non-stop flight or a stop over is best for your pal
  • Consider how long your pal can go without a potty break
  • Research the airports you will be visiting for their dog friendly potential (see Top dog friendly airports below)

Before the flight

  • Take your pal for a long walk or run at the park before you fly…a tired pooch may likely sleep through the flight
  • Avoid feeding for several hours before your flight
  • Bring a treat or two to help soothe any stress your pal might feel
  • Bring current health records just in case
  • Take a travel bowl with you
