Hi all, we live in the Seattle area and have a 4.5 mos old B, Layla. We may need to travel via air and are discussing our options. We know we can take her in a carrier in the main cabin if it fits under the seat in front of us (Layla is 14 lbs now, and still growing of course, but she would fit). Each airline's rules are a bit different, but roughly its the same overall rules. We will not fly her in cargo. We received her from an out of state breeder via air travel and she was shipped in the pet cargo area at 8 weeks and we don't want her to repeat that experience, and we generally feel its not as safe as we would hope it would be.
My wife though suggested that perhaps there are groups that offer to watch each other's Basenjis as they are aware of the breed characteristics, etc. and that always helps ..... but not sure if this exists or how we would find such people. Really just looking for a kennel alternative, I suppose, if we decide not to fly her.
Thanks for any input or thoughts.
