Transporting pet

November 18th, 2006, 03:39 AM
One major problem I have with my pet is transporting it to one place to another. I always have to deal with the people staring at us everytime he barks inside the bus. We always have to do this two times a year so it is really not convenient. But now that I read that there is a courier service via air, I might try it once. Anyone who tried courier service for pets via airline already?

Wow ~ where are you in the world that you are allowed to bring your dog on the bus ? I would do a great deal of reading and telephoning about the air carrier before I would ever fly my dawgs ~ particularly in the cold seasons.

Dogs are allowed on all public transport in the UK, I take him on the busses and the tube all the time...

They are allowed on the bus on Vancouver Island only in recent years though. I would be very careful about courier services, i'd want to keep any pets near me even if it is awkward. What does it matter if people stare at you??

Oh I see...yes, animals are permitted on local transport here as well. I thought you meant a cross-country travel public carrier. England is so small...maybe working on the reasons he barks might be a better bet and if all else fails a little gravol or Bach's Rescue Remedy to help keep him calm. It's very expensive to fly animals.
