I need some advice.  Bebe Magoo had promised me one of her litter and I wasn't sure I wanted to go through the adventure of bringing a dog across the border.  Its hard enough getting my laptop onto a plane. :)  But she convinced me to take the plunge and see where this little adventure takes me.

So does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on bringing a dog back to Canada?  What airline is best to use, its gotta be carry on I pray.  I don't think I could handle it if she had to go some other way.  Also what papers the breeder needs to supply, etc.  I will research it all myself so I'm not being lazy, just thought I could pull on the vast experience and wisdom of Pugslife.

Thanks for all your help,

Looks like all you need is a vet health certificate and rabies vaccine. Not too shabby.

I was just reading reviews on this website from travellers using Westjet and bringing their pets.  Looks like its a very pet friendly airline.  I don't think I can use points for them, but I'll take them anyways.


I have heard recently that airlines are banning dogs like pugs and bulldogs. Due to their breathing issues. You may need to look into that if you intend to fly.

Pugchick just flew with one of pugmans pups.Not to Canada though.Im sure she could give some great info on flying with a pug!

Pugs MUST fly in the cabin! NEVER IN THE CARGO. Beyond that I can't help but just wanted to leave a friendly reminder :)

Phils a bugger!

Hi everyone!I was wondering if anyone had any advice on stopping phill from biting when he plays? He's nearly 10 months now and we think we'be tried everything we can find on the Internet and it isn't helping. We're not sure if it's because he is still intact which is making his playing more aggressive. He plays well with other dogs but he can nip them bits it when he plays with people he's a big finger nipper. We've tried stop playing if he bites and putting him in his pen and telling him no…See More
