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.
