Wondering if anyone had any experience flying with their new puppy on southwest. Seems from my reading online that they will allow the medium size Sherpa dog carrier but just looking for any personal experience. The puppy will be 7.5 weeks old and even though they say 8 weeks, I talked to them today and they said they do not check anything.
Flight it direct and only 1 hour and 45 minutes. We will also be purchasing an extra seat for our 1 year old so foot room will not be a problem. My only concern is the size of the medium sherpa and the size of the pup. The sherpa is 17x11x10.5. Will this be big enough to not cause any red flags by the airport folks? How big is a puppy generally during this stage? Thanks
