Flying in and out of the Caribbean with dogs

Hi Everyone!

My boyfriend and I are planning our first season in the Caribbean and are wondering how to go about getting our dogs back and forth. They are both english setter/brittany spaniel crosses and are not used to high heat. I'm not concerned once we get on the boat as I will have cooling mats and they both love to swim.

My main concern is flying them back to Newfoundland at the end of the season when we go home for the summer. I have heard many horror stories about dogs dying from heat stroke on airport tarmacs and am terrified of flying them in and out of the Caribbean, it being a very hot place.

Has anyone else done this? Are certain airlines better than others? Certain airports more reliable than others at keeping pets cool and off the tarmac? Any advice would be appreciated.

We will be sailing from Newfoundland to BVI on our first trip, then leaving the boat there and flying from for the summer, then flying back again in the fall.

Thanks everyone!
