    Default Flying with bully next to you (NOT ON CARGO)

    Hi I have a 10 month english bully named Amber and I have gotten a doctors note for her to fly on the plane with me as an emotional support animal. She has flown with me 3 times now. The first time she flew is when I bought her in San Diego (was only 9 lbs then and didn't need a note for her to fly) and flew back home to Phoenix with her. Her next trip was from Phoenix to NY and then back, as that's where my family lives. So far she has done very well on all her flights. She did get a little sick and threw up a very small amount of bile when we were getting of the plane after it landed in NY.

    However, I was recently talking to another bully owner and they said they would never risk flying with their bully, even if it were sitting on their lap.

    So my question is, how safe is it to fly with an english bulldog it it'ssitting right by your feet or on your lap?

    Here's a picture of Amber after the groomer the other day

    Amber is beautiful! I am no expert, but flying in a seat like a person should be okay. That is the only way I would fly my precious dogs!

    OMG she is precious.... love her color and that tippy tongue!! so sweet!

    I have never flown a bully, but I know many airlines refuse to fly Brachycephalic breeds (flat face or short muzzle).

    I'm glad to hear your doctor has enough common sense to write you the note so your baby can fly next to you. That's the only way I would fly my bully's or any other animal. Good for you

    I know it's not safe for any pet to fly in the cargo belly of a plane in case of pressure dropping

    I think in cabin is fine, they may get a little woozy from the altitude but the cabin is pressurized and comfortable.

    However, If your dog is not used to large crowds and such it would be a little risky only because they could overheat from being stressed.

    Last but not least omg she is precious!!

    I have never flown a dog, but here they have to go in cargo and I wouldn't do that, You would think if it safe for us it is for them but I am no expert of course. She is a real cutie.

    I would say it is perfectly safe because she is in the cabin with you. I think the exceptions are when they are flying as cargo in the hold. And I agree with what everybody else has said that she is totally adorable!!!

    I have two friends of mine who fly with their bullies in the cabin with them all the time and they have never had any problems. Tim and Prince (the bully) even got moved up to first class once, because Prince is just such a cutie.

    I think it would be fine! In fact she may get a lot of attention!

    Most airlines won't check as baggage or cargo dogs with snub noses. The only loophole is the emotional support animal letter. It's how I got Norman home to GA from UT. He did just fine. And I was nervous because I had just gotten him and he was a rescue so i have no info on him so I really had no idea how he was going to do. But I was gonna go down trying. Everyone said how good he was. Even the flight attendants!

    She's beautiful! How does she like the grooming experience? We've considered it.
