LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dogs of all shapes and sizes can make the perfect traveling companions for people with a passion for travel, whether by land, sea or air. Globetrotting dog owners should not be restricted to choosing only the smallest breed—even when traveling by airplane—according to the American Kennel Club (AKC).
Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Jerry Klein tells Newsweek: “Different airlines have their own specific pet policies, but, if your pet carrier (with your pet inside) can fit under the seat in front of you, your dog can ride in the cabin on flights that allow it. “This would be a dog weighing up to about 20 pounds. Always check with your airline to confirm specific requirements. “Dogs that exceed the 20 lb. requirement for in-cabin travel, must fly as cargo.
Here are the 7 easiest dogs to travel with in my opinion:
These pint-sized purebred dogs originating from Mexico are recognized for their larger-than-life personalities. “Dog breeds that would typically fit in a carrier under the [airplane] seat are Toy breeds,” Dr. Klein says.
2. Yorkshire Terrier
The Yorkie is one of the smallest dog breeds of the terrier type, making them one of the world’s most portable pets. Yorkshire Terriers are also considered a particularly sociable dog breed, meaning they are often more than eager to accompany their owners on their travels.
3. Australian Terrier
These purebred dogs are considered delightful companions for frequent flyers—and not only for their compact size. This terrier’s obedient nature strong personality means they are happy to be left alone for longer than average periods, while their low-maintenance coat is a bonus while traveling.
4. Bichon Frise
Known for their wonderful white coat and their doll-like dark eyes, the diminutive Bichon Frise has the perfect proportions for coping with the trials of traveling in small spaces. These dogs often have a genial and easy-going nature, meaning they are friends for those looking to hit the open road.
5. Portuguese Water Dog
These cute, curly-coated dogs are notable for how easy they are to train and their eagerness to please, meaning these dogs will soon learn to love traveling. In addition, the Portuguese Water Dog is a non-shedding breed, meaning prospective pet-owning travelers will not have to worry about their pet’s hair covering their hire car.
6. Labrador Retriever
Medium-sized Labs are active dogs more than happy to jump in the car and go on an adventure with their owner. Gentle, intelligent and easy to train, the loyal Labrador Retriever will, however, be required to travel via crate for journeys in an airplane.
The medium-sized Dalmatian dog breed is best known for its distinctive white coat marked with black colored spots. Because Dalmatians were bred to travel beside horse-drawn coaches, these athletic and intelligent dogs are durable and can confidently handle long journeys.
