I understand. He went to JFK with me many times to pick up my son as he is traveling a lot and never had any problem.
Also we leave Downtown Manhattan in a very busy area. Financial District is very crowd.
If no one that I and he is familiar with is not available I will take the risk to take him with us.
I will keep you updated.
Dobbileo : I was not trying to be a A-hole in my reply to you , my wife says it just comes naturally for me
But You asked for opinions and you got great advise on this subject , but I have to add a few things here , I know your new on here and happy you joined up here , welcome !
Dobebug : got her first Doberman in 1959 ! + plus works at a vets office
4x 4 has had Dobermans since the 70’s
meadowcat : nose work champion , notice on the left hand side the list of awards + the RIP’s for many of the posters.
Dob_Mom , another Doberman owner , with a top 20 Dog
greenie, another great poster , currently complaining Hugo .
What I trying to say here is the experience level is off the scale !
my reason for concern is we have been blessed with several senior Dobermans , Kasia was the tops , for now , we took her to FLA camping for a month , she was a great rider , but as she got older , like me , we change , what once was not a concern turns into one .
What changed Kasia was a tornado that crossed our field right behind our house , it changed her life forever . When it stormed , she was off the scale with anxiety! To the point of almost uncontrollable , yet she trusted ole dad , thank God .
My point is , as another posted said , riding in a car and a airplane has no comparison , just like living in the big city , lots of noise and people . What I see as the problem there. Is no escape if something goes wrong , stuck in a aluminum tube for 7 hours would be a night mare , and I , hate nightmares .
There is so many unknowns for the first time out , you understand what i’m trying to say ?
I understand your problem with a sitter , If it was my dog , I would find someway to keep him home or I won’t go .
I know that sounds stupid , one friend told us you can’t live your life around a.dog , well we don’t have a dog I told them , we have a Doberman , and yes , we live our life’s around our pair !
Best of luck , I truly mean it .
