3-Breeds More Likely to Die During Flights

Yet another reason to leave your beloved pets at home with a loving pet sitting and loving professional dog walking company like Poochy Doos, LLC! Delta Airlines recently banned certain dogs from flying due to the number of deaths associated with specific breeds. Dogs they’ve identified at greater risk that made their banned list are:

  • English Bulldogs
  • French Bulldogs
  • American Bulldogs

Likewise, the U.S. Department of Transportation has found that “short-faced” dog breeds such as pugs and bulldogs account for about half of the dogs that die while being transported as cargo.

Flying With Dogs – Will Other Airlines Follow Suite

Although it’s unclear whether other airlines will follow suit, it may be worth reconsidering flying with your “short-faced” pal, given the higher incidence of death involved in these breeds. Which, again, brings up the benefit of hiring a professional pet sitter and just leaving your best friend among familiar and comfortable surroundings – your home! When considering our qualifications, all our pet sitting amenities and the pros and cons of pet sitting vs kennels – there’s no better choice.

And of course, that just makes sense. There’s a reason why  people feel uncomfortable flying with dogs – their “gut” just tells them their pet will likely be miserable during the flight. You don’t need to look any further than your dog, in the crate, shaking like a leaf.

Leave your dog at home, with your comforting scent, and schedule a vacation for your dog! Contact us today – we’d love to be your best friend’s friend!  Our pet sitting service provides loving care and exercise, complete with lots of love and snuggles, while your away.
