Question Flying with My Hav

Hi Everyone, I am new to the group and new to the Havanese owner world. I love my Harvey! In two weeks, we are flying from Montana to California (he will go as my carry on) but I am concerned about his poor ears popping. Does anyone have any advice on how to keep them comfortable or chew things that will help keep his ears open?

Welcome Renae - what a great name for your light/white/cream Havanese - just like Harvey the rabbit. I don't recall needing to worry about their ears on a flight - mine traveled just fine in the cabin with me.

Thanks! I have been worried about him. He was flown to me when he was about 10 weeks old, but hasn't flown since. Harvey's registered name is Happy Harvey because he just doesn't have a bad day - and because of that, he makes me happy!

Hi Renae, to the forum! You don't need to worry about your dog's ears popping. Dogs will naturally pant and that keeps their ears from building up pressure like ours does - you know how chewing gum helps your ears from hurting? Panting does the same things to dogs! I've flown 3 times with Kubrick and never a peep out of him. He just slept the whole time. Harvey will be just fine.

WOW! I did not know that! Thanks so much! I feel much better! I am going back for a family reunion and it just doesn't seem fair to not let them meet the rest of the "family" and so Harvey had to go too!

Welcome to the forum, Renae and Harvey!! Good luck on your trip. Should be fun. Sounds like Harvey is such a great boy. Would love to see more pics if you've got 'em. How old is he?

Harvey was born June 6, 2007 - so he almost a whole year! I got him from Arkansas and he made the flight all the way to Spokane, WA and then we traveled home to Bozeman, MT. He is wonderful! He is fairly well behaved, but gets into a few things. I am amazed at how smart he is and how much stuff he figures out. Everything I read about the Havanese breed is Harvey. I have attached their Christmas photo. The blue English Setter is Harvey's big brother Blue Hue and the orange English Setter is Harvey's big sister Shotgun Citori. I told my boyfriend that if he was going to keep taking my dogs hunting, I needed one to stay home with me. So I got Harvey!

Welcome to the forum Renea.

Harvey is a cutie and your English Setters are gorgeous. I used to have an Orange Belton English setter named Henry, so have a secial spot for them in my heart.
Henry actually looked a bit similar to your female. Here's his pic.

WOW! Henry looked a lot like Citori! Too bad he is gone, we are looking for a mate for her! I would rather find a female for Hue, because I have such a hard time when the puppies leave, but Henry is gorgeous! I love your Hav, too! What a beautiful coat! What a lot of work! Harvey had to get a puppy cut or we were going to have meltdown. He doesn't like to be brushed as much as I like to brush!
