If you are planning to take your dog with you to another country, he is going to need a cage/crate. He will also have to go in the hold of the plane.
Let us face it many Dachshund’s owners tend to let their little ones sleep in bed with them. They love to burrow under the blankets, keep you warm and do not take up much room. He had a little soft blue cat bed that he liked to drag around the house and that is what he holed up in when we went out. Luke was never crate trained. In hindsight, he should have been however now the time had come.
We recently flew from America to Spain with Dachshund Luke and decided to fly with Continental Airlines; of course, Luke was going on the same flight.
Important: Not any cage/crate will do.
Check with the airline for all special crate requirements – some have additional requirements.
Find an airline approved crate supplier and make sure they meet airline requirements.
We used the ‘Petmate sky kennel’ with the additional raised floor and dry mats. This came complete with two food bowls and met all the requirements for Continental Airlines.
