    Anyone bring a LARGE dog?

    Advertisements



    I've been having trouble getting flights since I'm bringing a rather large dog with me (about 120lbs). I don't really have another option but to bring him, just wondering if others had done the same and if so how?

    Have you looked into shipping your pet through Amerijet? I don't know any details about it, but from reading other threads I know people sent their dogs via Amerijet and picked them up in Dominica. Good luck!

    Hmm good call I'll check it out. it has honestly been ridiculous.. Either the plane can't take him because he'd cause the plane to be unbalanced (their weight limit is 100 and he is 120... that whole 20 pounds will apparently be trouble) OR because he may look a little like a rottweiler (which he isnt, not even close) Airlines with no weight restriction problems won't take him. meh...

    Aww puppy!! I wish I could bring my dog with me, but I know she's better off staying here with my family. I hope you figure it out, having him/her there will definitely help you feel more at home!

    120 lbs is nothing. My neighbor has a dog that is 175 lbs and thats after it lost weight from being old. He's used to be 240 lbs. He's an English Mastiff. The males typically weigh something between 150-250 lbs. The largest dog in the world was an English Mastiff weighing 343 lbs, 37 inches tall at the shoulder and 8 feet 3 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. (I've have a lot of dogs and bred them as well).
    I would not be able to handle a dog that big! My dog is a toy poodle so she pretty easy to take care of. I can just pick her up if she gets annoying, but a dog that big would probably topple me over

    Mine is a Cane Corso, its a breed of mastiff, still big at 120 but more athletic/energetic than other breeds of mastiff not as lazy as the bigger ones tend to be.

    And yes I found a solution (I think) through Amerijet. Its gonna cost me about 500$ but he will get there. Only problem is they only ship animals from Miami and I live in Quebec... Woo road trip! They also change their flight schedules every month, so although flights to Dominica are every tuesday in November, it could be another day in December which is making my booking a flight all the more troublesome.

    oh and yeah, my parents have a great dane who is approx. 170lbs. I'm not used to mine being the little guy!
    They don't always get along which prevents me from leaving him with mom and dad... haha. Last time they fought the couch was destroyed... not good..
