Crate training is crucial for a pet that is travelling to a different country. The comfort of your pet on the international flight depends largely on how comfortable he or she is in the crate. It is advisable to get the crate early and acclimatise your pet to the crate before travelling.
Choosing the correct air crate for your pet dog or cat will ensure their safety and comfort in the cargo hold of an aeroplane. The crate should not just be comfortable and safe for your pet; it should also meet all International Air Transport Association (IATA) guidelines for transport of live animals.
