Home Boarding Shipping Pets relies on international airlines, leaders in the shipping of pets. Cargo shipping is the best service for shipping pets. In fact, the pets are kept inside their pet carriers only during the journey. In particular, pets must be kept outside when they are not traveling.
When transported inside the aircraft, the pets are placed in a dedicated hold equipped with ventilation and a controlled temperature of 22 ° C (71,6 °F). So the pets always have water available and during the stops, they are taken out, providing them with water and food. In addition, each pet is traceable at any time: it is thus possible to know where they are, at any stage of the journey. In addition, there are specialized airline veterinarians: they are the ones who constantly supervise the staff who have every single pet in custody. In particular, these are highly qualified personnel able to intervene for every need.
What is the necessary documentation?

The pet carrier
Homologation and special carriers
The pet carrier must be IATA approved for shipping, they can be found on the market but must have certain characteristics of construction and strength. In addition, each pet carrier must have 2 bowls, one for water and one for food.
Some airlines claim that the side grilles are made of metal and not plastic.
How can you know if your pet carrier is suitable?
Your pet must be comfortable inside the carrier, when standing it must not touch the roof of the carrier and there must be a distance of 10 cm from the end of the animal, so if it keeps its ears up it is considered from the tip of the ears .
The animal must be able to rotate on itself inside the carrier, and there must be a minimum distance from the door when it is lying. Some companies for squash-nosed breeds ask for an extra size of the crate to be placed over the appropriate size. Some airlines do not carry flat-nosed pets. Furthermore, some airlines, for certain types of dog breeds considered dangerous, ask for the transport of the animal with the FLIGHT CRATE.
The Flight Crate
The Flight Crate is a crate with certain characteristics for the transport of dangerous animals. It is not found on the market, nor in common pet shops, but it must be built according to the specific size of the animal.
