Most pups love an interesting adventure, but a long plane ride and all the strange sights, sounds, and smells of the journey can tax even the most relaxed pooch. It’s hardly the same as a cross-country hike or romp in the surf. Nonetheless, most dogs take air travel in stride, emotionally and physically. But not all dogs.
