After waiting for a about a year we are finally getting our first Hav!
More excited than I can even express! The little guys comes home later this month..
My question is this...we're going to fly him home, flight is about 1 1/2 hrs. anyone have any tips we need to keep in mind about flying with a puppy??
All I can say is it was much easier than I was afraid it might be with Kodi. Our breeder supplied us with a HUGE pee pad, and we had a small, soft-sided Sherpa bag, and extra cloth towel and lots of paper towels along in case of accidents.
We had a two hour drive to the airport, and another hour drive from the airport once we got home. He did get sick once in the carrier on the way to the airport, so the paper towels and the extra cloth towel for the bottom of the carrier came in handy.
We spread the big pee pad out for him to pee a couple of times, without him coming in contact with the ground or the floor in the airport. He dutifully peed each time, and never had an accident in his carrier.
He cried a tiny bit in the car, just before he got sick, which is understandable, and basically slept the rest of the time. We held him a bit in the airport while we were waiting, but he slept the whole way in the plane.
When we got home, he was chipper and happy, ready to meet the rest of the family, have a little play time, then a little supper before falling back asleep and sleeping through the night. He was an easy puppy!
