Reader’s report: Modifying a Pettom Expandable pet carrier, flying in-cabin on Air Canada

Keri and I corresponded earlier this year, when she asked if I thought the Teafco Argo Petagon carrier might work for Flint, her “tall mini poodle with bigggggg hair and long legs.” I pointed her to my review of it, which she’d already seen, and confirmed that I thought it’d be a good match. Keri said she’d report back, and bless her, this week she did. Turns out that she chose an entirely different carrier, modified it in a fascinating  … Read more

Reader’s report: Oscar the Dachshund in a large SturdiBag (on an Air Canada 777-200 LR)

For years, I’ve been sending Dachshund owners to the Sleepypod Air, an unusually long and low carrier with Sleepypod’s usual great design and quality. And that’s what I did with reader Jenny, who dutifully bought one for Oscar, her Dachshund (followers of Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page will remember that Jenny and Oscar are the co-founders of Cheeky Dog Bakery, based in Dublin, Ireland). Jenny liked the Air, up to a point, but felt that it didn’t give Oscar enough room to turn  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

This was shaping up to be an epic Chloe’s Clicks last week — and then I missed posting it — so now it’s epic times two. Here we go, in no particular order.

The oldest link in the collection is a report from Laura Stephenson about her post-college road trip from Guatemala to Nicaragua and back — which I include because of its general can-do attitude and because she traveled with her dog Chispa. Also off the beaten track? Zuma’s Paw  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

This week’s collection of links is half about dog-friendly places to eat, and half miscellaneous. Starting, naturally, with the places to eat, check out Zagat‘s suggestions for dog-friendly restaurants in Los Angeles, and petswelcome.com‘s picks in Toronto. Join me, too, in celebrating Seattle’s first steps towards copying Portland’s massively successful food-truck pods — I’ve written a couple of posts about individual trucks, but this Seattle Times article provides helpful info about six pods, and where to find them. Why am  … Read more

Reader’s report: Victoria, B.C. airport pet relief area, Air Canada under-seat spaces, and keeping Truffles content in her carrier

This should have been in this past week’s Chloe’s Clicks, but mistakes were made. Remember Truffles, featured (with a chunk of coconut) in a Photo Friday post a short while ago? She and reader Patty made their way from the Bahamas to British Columbia recently, and I want to share three things from their report.

Victoria, B.C. airport (YYJ) pet relief area

First, they sought out the pet relief area at the Victoria, B.C. airport (it’s actually located about 15 miles north  … Read more

Reader’s report: Taking two in-cabin dogs from Canada to Sweden on Air Canada and DSB train

Reader Reinell wrote to me back in November 2010 about her upcoming trip from Canada to Sweden with Rocky and River, her two Yorkshire Terriers. Her plans were a bit complicated (a domestic flight to Toronto, an international flight to Copenhagen — both on Air Canada — and a train trip to Sweden), and she wondered, too, about sedating her dogs en route. She kindly agreed to send a report when all the dust settled, and here it is:
