Sophie's gonna fly! Help!
I live in NC and my oldest daughter is getting ready to have a baby in California. So I am going to spend 10 days and I'm taking Sophie. We kept their puggle,Izzy, for a year when they were in Australia, and she and Sophie had a great time together. Sophie is two and has never flown.
I got a large sturdi-bag,dry fur mats, and I've done a lot of research.
I've been getting her used to being in the carrier, and she' fine with that.
My concern is the trip. I will be traveling alone on JetBlue. We have a 50 minute layover in JFK, which I don't think is enough to exit the terminal and re enter through security.
We leave at 3:45 pm, so I thought I would give her her regular breakfast at 8 and then nothing else but maybe a couple of treats on the way.
Will she get dehydrated? The total trip is about 10 hours.I will take a peepad, but I think she will be too stressed to use it.
I would like to give her a bully stick for the trip, but I'm afraid it will make her thirsty. I will give her small ice cubes.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
