American Airlines accepts most dogs for cargo shipment, excluding those that are stub-nosed, such as boxers, mastiffs and pugs, as well as pets that have been sedated before the flight. Dogs must be accompanied by a health certificate dated within 10 days of travel, a current rabies vaccination record, and shipped in a USDA or International Air Transport Association-approved kennel. Dogs should also travel with a collar and leash with an I.D. tag. Cargo flights can be arranged through the American Airlines website and must not be more than 12 hours long. Dogs may not be shipped to certain international locations, including China and the United Kingdom. Dogs are only accepted as cargo when the temperature is expected to remain between 45 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. CitizenShipper helps people transport their dogs across the US.

Our ground pet shipping services cover the continental United States, door-to-door and coast-to-coast - - anywhere in the continental United States [except airports]. We provide pet transportation for most domestic pets, including cats, dogs, birds and small mammals *subject to certain restrictions. *Please check individual state restrictions on your breed at . If you have additional questions, please call our office staff. We are always happy to speak with you by phone. Large dogs require large travel crates, of course, as well as a few special considerations before and during the shipping process. So, if you have a particularly long-legged friend, it's especially important to prep carefully and start making plans as soon as you know you're moving.

In honor of Sky's successful move, here are a few topics and tips for moving big dogs: Travel Crates - If you do not already have airline approved travel crates for your pets, we will help you to ensure you get the right crate. We can have crates shipped directly to your home, shipping is always FREE. For our larger dogs we offer custom wooden crates built to specifications for your dogs comfort. If your pet is not already crate trained, we suggest obtaining this crate as soon as possible to begin the process which will help to ensure that your pet travels much more comfortably. For tips on crate training please see our tips page.Since driving takes longer, ground transport services tend to be more expensive due to the time and labor involved. Hiring a driver and factoring in gas and possible hotel fees makes this a significantly more expensive than the more streamlined event of shipping dogs across the country.This can be an overwhelming experience, especially if the idea of shipping dogs across the country is new to you. After learning more about pet friendly airlines and pet travel best practices, however, you may find air travel to be the best and most streamlined option. INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS
