    Even as a service dog, Layla needed health documents certified by her veterinarian and by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Seven pages. In French. And yes, she was in the cabin at my feet (we got the extra legroom seat).

    We flew Air France. See my reply to Sandy -- no charge for her, but getting the health documents done within the 10 day windor cost $100, plus the vet fee, plus the USDA fee of $38.

    Just curious...

    How do you train a dog to feel comfortable on a plane? Let alone one that has a 6+ hour flight! Not like that is an easy environment to have the opportunity to train in!

    I swear if I was flying and had a sheltie on board... I would want to sit next to you!!

    lots of crate training- if the dog can lay in the crate and be comfortable for hours, then the part about the crate being on a plane shouldn't matter.......

    I wouldn’t think she was in a crate since she is a service dog. Just seems like the roar of a planes engine would scare them. Heck, I know some people scared about take offs and landings!

    Layla must be one special dog with an equally special temperament!

    Layla has always been comfortable in new situations. The first time she went on a plane (from DC to Michigan), she just laid down and went to sleep. It's been that way ever since!

    Sounds amazing. I never got to see Paris, now I have too much trouble flying - maybe I should borrow Layla! One of the downsides of having no rabies in Australia- dogs can't travel (or they have to do 6mths quarantine).
