How do you buy plane tickets for a dog?
I'm considering flying to see my son in Tyler, Texas. I haven't flown in decades, and never with a dog.
How does one go about buying a ticket for them as economically as possible? I know about Cheaptickets.com and Travelocity.com, but is there a better way? And how do you pay for the dog? They do charge for a dog, don't they?
And, do you have to get there even earlier? Or go through different checkpoints?
I'm looking at carryon dog bags, preferably ones that I can use in the car, too.
What else haven't I thought of?
I don't know if I'll be able to afford it, but my son is away from home, homesick, and has no idea when he'll be able to afford to travel himself. I also thought it would be good for me to visit him, instead of bringing him here, so that it might help to make his apartment feel more like a real "home" that family has visited.
