Default Long flight with your yorkie?

One of the important questions for me that I want to ask everyone before I get a yorkie is if anyone flew with your yorkie for long flight? Like International flight or any flight with some stops.. connection flights?

I like traveling so I want to hear everyone's experiences flying with your dog? I am orginally from Japan, so if I can get a yorkie, I would love to show him/her to my parents too...

We fly with Annie all the time, and she is just fine. So far the longest she has done is New York to LA. No problems. She just goes to sleep in her carrier for the most part. Not a peep from her...

I have a friend that lives in Spain part of the year and travels with her Yorkie back and forth. She travels from New Mexico to Spain with no problems either... So I don't think traveling long distance should be a problem.

I have flown from Europe to Canada with a yorkie and recently flew to pick our new puppy. Just be sure to book as many stops as possible so you can exercise the dog. Mine were great little travellers.

I have flown quite a few times with my little ones. It can be done. I am a worry wart/control freak, so I tend to do probably way more than need be. But it can be easy when things are planned.

There are a few threads on here on flying with dogs. I know I have added some tips/stories to them. You may want to look them up.

I have flown with Prince to the Dominican Republic many times and so far he just sleeps throughout the entire flight. It's 3 and a half hours long so I don't know if you consider that a long flight. Also when I take Prince with me to work everyday I just make sure that he has his favorite toy with him in the carrier. So just in case he wakes up, he has something to entertain himself with.

If you have connection flights and have some time, you usually go outside to let them pee and walk? Dogs usually cannot walk at Airport property unless they are assisting dog, can they?

i am really interested in learning more about ur friends experience flying over seas with her yorkie b/c I have tried to get info on flying to Ecuador (south america), i called AA and they told me two stories one that they are not allowed int he cabin b/c its overseas eventhough they are less then 10 lbs. and then the second story was no no way absolutely not all dogs go in cargo only national flights are pets allowed in the cabin and that i have to call ahead of time b/c they dont allow more then 2 dogs or animals in the plane nor do they allow a dog on board if a cat was booked first.
then i called some Latin American airlines and i got the same story that b/c its an international flight that i will need to put my Chicle in cargo no matter what size or weight . .now that ridiculous..
I hear so many different stories maybe they are just taking advantage of my naiveness.. (is that a word? lol) and just giving me the run around ...
i really need some advise on this plz

I know for sure that her Yorkie was in the Cabin with her cause I just asked her that the other day. (I always wondered how Lucky did on such a long flight) I will ask her more details and find out what airline she normally flies, etc... I know the first time she brought Lucky out there she had to stay back a couple weeks longer than her husband to get all the paperwork taken care but I think that may have been to bring her into Europe. So stay tuned...

The regulations with respect to dogs "in cabin" change from airline to airline. All airlines have web pages where you can check if they accept pets in cabin. That information is usually under the "baggage" section.

I don't know of any airport where they will actually allow your dog to walk inside, you can however carry them in your arms, they do not have to be in a the crate.

I have flown with other medium-size breeds overseas & the airlines actually encouraged me to take the dogs on leashes for a walk both for exercise & to allow them to do their business prior to being crated for the overseas flight. We could usually find some area that the dogs could relieve themselves prior to the flight then we crated them & off through security they went.

So if you have connection flights, where do they bring them to pee or poop? Are you bring them to bathroom with pee pad or you try to go outside of airport?

When I have a connection, I try to potty them on a pad instead of going outside because if you go outside, you run the risk of having to go through security all over again. And that can always be a gamble. I usually get in line for the restroom and hope for the handicapped stall (it's bigger) and laid down a used pad (gross I know; but it has scent which usually triggers faster) and just tell him to go potty over and over and over. There is so much going on that sometimes its hard. That's why I bring the soiled pad; it's something familiar and stimulates easier.

I got lucky that my hubby is a member of Continental's President club. I usually can find a private restroom and we can get a 'family room' with a TV so the dog can run around and stretch for a bit. It really helps so get some activity in so they will fall asleep again on the next leg of the trip.

Toto and I fly home about every other month, sometimes every month. It's only a little over 1700 air miles but the layover in Denver is what is so time consuming! We try to get an early flight out of Grand Junction ... 6 or 8 AM and with the Denver layover we usually arrive in Birmingham around 2 PM. I prefer direct flights but there just aren't any! She is very good and has never, ever gone tee tee in her carrier, except her very first flight and it was extremely long [we took a limo to Atlanta and left from there, never again!!]. After that we put a diaper on her and I take her to the bathroom and remove it and try to get her to go on her pad, but she is so stressed that she won't! She absolutely will not tee tee in the diaper either! She once held it from 6 AM until about 11 PM that night due to overbooking and having to make three different connections! I was sooo upset and we still had to stay overnight in Denver!! The vet said it wouldn't "hurt" her to hold it that long as long as it doesn't happen often. Toto is very good and so patient that it's very easy to travel with her ... she loves that she can stick her head out the top of her carrier and meet lots of people!!

Attached is photo of my poor exhausted baby when we did the "overnite" in Denver!! She was such a patient little girl that day!!
