We are moving July 7th to San Diego, CA from northern IL for the Navy. We had very little notice and only have 5 days to make the move so we are flying instead of driving. We will only be living there for 1-3 months since my husband will be getting deployed till sometime next year so DS, myself and our dog (4 year old Schnauzer/Poodle mix) will be moving to Texas to live with my mom while DH is gone.
Due to all this craziness my mom offered to take Toby (our dog) while we are in San Diego so he won't have to make two trips in such a short amount of time. I know it's not ideal but he gets car sick so the least amount of travel for him the better. So we were thinking about flying him down to my mom before we move. Just wondering if anyone has flown a pet and had any tips on airlines? He is to big to be on the plane so unfortunately he will have to be in cargo. I really wish there was a better option but there aren't many right now. Any help would be appreciated TIA!
