Help me out here if you can...

1) Is anybody down near me (GA or nearby) heading to/near Edmonton any time in the next few months?

2) Does anybody know how to get a dog up there? I haven't looked, but my client says there are no airlines with climate controlled cargo that go in there...

I've never shipped a dog to Canada... Figured someone would have some answers here more quickly than I can find them.

And it is a DOG, not a puppy.

Thanks!

Kristie,

I've shipped several puppies to Canada - one directly into Edmonton. I *think* I used Northwest to Edmonton out of Atlanta.

NWA is the easiest to use going into Canada. Air Canada is another one.

No, I don't think they are climate controlled (to my knowledge only Continental is) but they probably have the typical 25-80 deg restrictions.

Hi, Air Canada is a bit tricky. There needs to be an Air Canada cargo office in the location that you are shipping out of and if there is then the connecting flights have to all work out. I have not had much luck with shipping dogs via Air Canada from the USA, but it is possible if everything works out. Northwest flies in to Edmonton but has temp restrictions. The best bet is to fly Continental(no temp restrictions) in to Calgary, which I believe is a couple hour drive from Edmonton. Hope this helps.

Kristie,
If you can get the dog into Calgary, it is a three hour drive north to Edmonton.

Kristie-

I would take this advice & use Continental. I drove 4 hours to Boston to get Finn flying in from TX so that he could go on Continental. Not only are they just the best w/ the dogs, but I felt much better knowing he was in a climate controlled hold. It took all the headache out of relying on a weather forecast to see if he'd make another airlines temp restrictions.

Hi Kristie.

The airlines have a minimum (10*F = -12*C) and maximum (85*F = 29*C) outside temperature that allows your dog to travel. The cargo area is pressure controlled, but I don't know about climate controlled. I think right now should be still safe , but check with Northwest Airlines. Priority Pet takes care of the animals.

this page has links to most of your pet questions...

Here is the checklist for an unaccompanied dog...

Rabies is the only shot that has to be up to date with the dog,and all that paper work will accompany him. Your crate has to be a certain size, and travelling from here, the biggest crate they could fit onto the plane was a large, or series 700. Air Canada also takes pets, but not sure of maximum size of crate there. Also try West Jet......

If you need anymore help, just give me a shout. I sent you a PM

Debbie.
