I have traveled across the whole United States by car and plane with my puppy. My Sofi did great! We stopped often in the car and I let her go pee pee. She slept most of the time in the car. On the plane, she slept most of the time in her carrier. It may have something to do with the vibration. In her carrier was a pee pee pad and whenever we hit an airport, we took a pee pee pad and put it on the floor. We had a collapsible bowl for food and water.
My Zoey on the other hand gets car sick and next week I have to drive 1,800 miles with her. The vet gave me Adaptil to spray on her bed. It worked the last time I drove 25 miles with her. I plan to use that again. It has a calming effect. I tried giving her Pet Calm drops but she still threw up.
You want to be sure to have plenty of wipes, plastic bags to throw waste away, a dry towel, and paper towels plus extra pee pee pads and either a collapsible bowl or a lixit attached to her crate so she will have access to water. You also might want to have a luggage cart with wheels so you can wheel her through the airport.
I think you will be fine. Nobody said anything to me about my dog except just wanting to know what I had in the cage. I told them I had a monkey because Sofi would make noises exactly like a monkey!! LOL
