All dogs shipped by air must be housed within an IATA approved kennel which will be suitable for how big canine being transported. Food and water should also be included in the kennel for long journeys and some airlines do exercise any dogs being shipped in the hold on tight significant stop-overs however for security reasons, this is not something that you (if you’re travelling on the same aircraft) could be allowed to accomplish yourself.
