1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey everyone,
My apologies in advance if this topic has already been addressed previously.

Has anyone ever traveled with their husky? Specifically, traveling with your husky in the cabin of a plane? If so, can you please share your experiences?

I plan to travel from California to New York at the end of the year, and I called some airlines to inquire about their policies of allowing dogs in their cabin. The general response was that only service dogs are allowed in the cabin and must be at the owner's feed the entire duration of the flight.

I do believe that non service dogs must be in approved airline crates and travel in cargo hold. I won't do it, very stressful on the dog. We do travel with our 2 by car and they are great. Once we stop about 30 minutes into the trip and get ice cream - 'cause that's what Z'ev expects and without it, he is a pacing, howling fool!!!

We stay mostly in Red Roof Inn's because they allow up to 2 dogs per room and no extra charge. I always bring 3 king size sheets - one for each bed (if I can't get a one king bed room) and one for any chair that might be there. I also pack my carpet brush (it's the resolve carpet cleaner brush - I don't like their foam cleaner but the brush is great to rake up hair from a carpet! And it breaks down into 3 pieces for easy packing. Our back up hotel is La Quinta, a bit more expensive but still as pet friendly with no extra charge.

No non-service dogs in cabin. Emotional support animals are not service animals. Each airline should state what their required crate type is and what vaccinations your dog will be required to have. Sometimes the place of arrival will also have rule pertaining to vaccines per their own state laws.

We won't fly our animals. If a short trip, best to just put up in a nice trustworthy boarding facility than risk it. Animals are very stressed in cargo and sometimes die of fluctuating temperature changes at various times of year. You might see what the policies are for taking the train if driving isn't an option and you will be gone long enough that taking your dog is a must.

While this has nothing to do with air travel - I refuse with all the time and stipulations now - it is about travel with pets.

Amy has mentioned both Red Roof Inns and La Quinta, both of whom are very good but a tad expensive for my budget.  I've found Motel 6 to be exceptional for handling the dogs as I've traveled.

I was somewhere with my first Husky, Misty, and in between dog, room keys, baggage she got loose (( Oops!! )) and headed down the hallway toward the stairs when the night clerk grabbed her at the head of the stairs.  Seems as if he'd been watching the 'new arrival', saw her get loose and did his duty!  Excellent grab, he got her collar and she was mild enough on lead so it wasn't a problem.  He laughed and said she wasn't the first or the biggest he'd had to catch.

Motel 6's are individually owned, for the most part, so they're individually managed.  I've found a couple that I wouldn't stay in a second time (wouldn't have stayed the first except I'd already paid for the room and I was tired!) but for the most part they're good for the price.

We usually go to motel 6 although ive actually had better luck and non chain motels. Sheraton tends to also be very dog friendly. Way way way out of our price range but when jerry has va appointments in denver the va travel vouchers are for hotels that are usually places we cant afford. We discovered at the Sheraton that elevators are a huge problem for spider.

I'm laughing - we've had problems with Ami vis-a-vis elevators and the floating stair treads at some hotels. Most notable, a motel 6 in Augusta, Maine. Maybe a days inn, don't remember, now and they change hands so much, hard to track down. Suffice it to say, he went up just fine, getting back down is another matter. Housekeeping staff find it highly amusing.
