FLYING WITH YOUR DOGS IN A CR8-2FLY Wooden Crate
Necessary Crate for Flying with High Energy and Anxious Dogs
Many large high energy breeds are prone to injuring themselves from escape attempts in less durable crates made from plastic, wire, and other cheap materials. This can also apply to many dogs with separation anxiety. Many airlines now require large high energy breeds or dogs with separation anxiety to fly in reinforced crates. Common breeds with this behavior include:
|Anxious Dog Breeds
||High Energy Breed Dogs
- Bichon Frise
- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
- Cocker Spaniel
- German Shorthaired Pointer
- Italian Greyhound
- Retriever (Golden, Labrador, Chesapeake Bay)
- Terrier (Airedale, Fox, Jack Russell)
- Border Collie
- Blue Heeler
- English Springer Spaniel
- Irish Setter
- Retriever (Golden, Labrador, Chesapeake Bay)
- Siberian Husky
- Shepherds (Australian, German)
- Shetland Sheepdog
We HIGHLY recommend using a reinforced kennel like the CR8-2FLY wood crate to fly with your dog in order to ensure their safety. You should also prepare your dog well in advance of any flight and provide ample time to acclimate your dog to the crate.
READ BEFORE YOU BOOK - ADDITIONAL AIRLINE BREED AND SIZE RESTRICTIONS
While the CR8-2FLY crate is IATA CR-82 compliant for all dog breeds, some airlines have additional restrictions regarding breeds, dog sizes, and sizes of crates. We strongly recommend providing the specifications of this crate (including sizes) and your dog to the airline transporting your dog to confirm if there are any additional restrictions!
Please be aware, as of July 2018, most domestic airlines have added additional breeds of dogs (including pit bulls and pit mixes) to their no-fly list. Please check with your airline if they will be allowed to fly your breed of dog.
Please confirm with your airline that they will accept this crate, before purchasing. We are not able to take returns in situations where verification of acceptance of the crate is not first obtained from an airline.
