Kalmara and/or others- how cold does it get in the cargo hold when sending dogs overseas? I've got one staying who is going on to Canada. Shes due for a clip, but wondering about the temp in the hold for long trips?
thanks HH

I don't know how cold it gets exactly, but we took our dog and 2 cats over from the Uk when we came here to live and he did the trip no problem at all.
I think the hold where the animals go isn't that cold.

I *thought* that where the animals are carried is supposed to be the same temp / air as the main cabin? But then I've read of dogs being placed in luggage holds accidentally and, no doubt like others, have read a whole lot of other stuff.

Short answer, don't know for sure! Perhaps you could just ring Air NZ and ask?

To hijack for a moment; does anyone in New Zealand know of breeder/s of Portugese Water Dogs? TIA :)

I should think it will be warm enough, just as long as they don't leave a window open!!

Not sure what airline going on as yet, some weeks away. Have emailed the pet travel co to see what their reply is, but needed to book her in for clip soonish so it had some time to regrow before she goes. Sounds like its not too cold so thats good. thanks :)

Same temps as the passengers. I would clip her as depending on travel times it may help keep her cleaner.
Give Mike at Dandy Dogs a call 04 232 3396, he has all the answers to my questions re o/seas travel for dogs.

I brought cats from Canada 10 years ago, I was told at the time that it could get cold in the area where the animals are but it was in relation to considering whether to sedate them or not. If they are sedated they can't control their body temperature very well, so they recommend not sedating them. They came through just fine.

Word of caution--parts of the US and Canada got hit with a blizzard yesterday...you may not want to clip the coat, not because of the freight hold, but because the poor beastie could be shiverin' on landing.
