Airplane

If you are going to travel with your dog it is necessary that you know the rules of the airline, since the facilities will vary depending on each of them. If you want the pet to stay in the cabin with you, your weight, plus the transporting weight, can not exceed eight kilos. The transporting must be labeled with the data of the owner and destination. In general, airlines request certain documentation, such as health and insurance requirements, so that pets can travel on this means of transport.
Brachycephalic or flat-snouted dogs, such as chow chow, bull tierrer and boxers, for example, can not travel in the plane's hold, as they are at risk of respiratory distress due to stress or high temperatures.

Trains
