Hello all! I am currently stationed overseas in Okinawa, Japan, and about a year ago I rescued a 4 year old Doberman who means the world to my husband and I. We have never traveled with animals before, and we are heading back to the states at the end of the month for our next duty station. Now I have two dogs, but Duke is the one I'm concerned with since he is big, even for Dobie standards. My husband and I are willing to pay just about anything to get him back to the states, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with flying with dogs on long flights. We will be allowed to let him out in Tokyo, but then he's stuck in the plane until we enter the states, which is usually around 14 hours. Is any airliner better than the other with this? How much does it usually cost someone to travel with a Dobie? Should I feed him before-hand? Any advice/info anyone could give in regards to this is greatly appreciated.
