Question by Dd™: What responsibilities does a reputable stud dog owner have?
I understand you’d have to show the dog, get all the genetic health testing done as well as making sure he has the appropriate temperament for his breed. I’m guessing you’d also have to show up with your dog if the customers want to see and interact with the sire of the litter.
But what other responsibilities does the owner of a stud dog have?
Answer by Kip’s Mom *** ***
The B-tch is generally sent to the stud for breeding (assuming it’s not an AI breeding), so the stud owner must be able to handle that.

Question by Tosha: What airlines allow pets in the cabin?
I have a 45-50 Lbs. puppy. I absolutely don’t want her to have to travel under the plane. Especially without knowing the time of year and not knowing if they’re properly setup for pets. I think the anxiety of being separated and in an absolutely new situation would certainly put some large stress on her.
45 Lbs, 21″ tall and 24″ long.
I also have a 5 Lbs. kitten that I’m sure would travel just fine in a carrier on the plane, so she’s not so much the issue.
But if anyone could let me know what airlines let “larger” dogs travel in the cabin. That would be wonderful.
Answer by theSebster
Generally larger dogs aren’t allowed in the cabin. To be honest, most airlines require pets of all sizes to travel in the cargo hold. This is mainly due to consideration for the other passengers, especially those who have allergies, etc.
Some airlines will allow very small dogs in the cabin, but these airlines are in the minority. Contact the airline(s) you want to travel with, and check with them directly.
It is considered perfectly safe for pets to travel in the hold. Studies have shown that pets are less stressed in the hold, as it is both dark and quiet. The pets needs to be in separate kennels, and the kennels must be large enough for the pet to be able stand up and turn around. You should provide a bowl for water. Do NOT feed your pet for at least 12 hours before the flight. This is to minimise the risk of the pet pooping in the kennel… You obviously don’t want the pet to spend hours in his/her own faeces.

Question by Smiley B: where can I find a carrier big enough for my st bernard?
He is 36 inches tall, 56 inches long and needs to fly from florida USA to Chile South America. Need to find proper crate/carrier/kennel?
Answer by kris10nchains
If you are shipping your car, put him in there! (lol) He won’t be comfortable in ANY commercial airline crate. My best guess would be to call the airlines and ask them. If they approve, maybe you could have one made???

Question by Jessie: Help finding a cat carrier for continental airlines?
I am flying with my cat (about 12 pounds) on Continental in the cabin. I’ve never flown with a cat and am having a hard time finding a carrier. The dimensions are small for continental (9 inches in height for hard). I’ve already decided to go with a soft kennel to allow her maximum room.
Where can I find these kennels?
If 9 inches is the max for hard what height should I look at for soft?
Answer by Blueeyes
At pet stores they will have the dimensions on the carriers. I hope you will be able to find one.
