If a pet will be a part of your holiday travel plans, experts advise some planning ahead. Karin Caifa gets tips on flying with furry friends during these peak periods, and when it might be best to leave them behind. Many families traveling for the holidays, will want their four-legged friends along for the ride. The Humane Society of the United States says if you must fly with your pet, it ideally belongs in the cabin, in your care, rather than the cargo hold. Ahead of your trip, ask if the airline has any pet health or immunization requirements, or requirements for pet carriers. Then, practice getting them in and out of that carrier. "They're going to spend a lot of hours in it, in a very small space under the seat in front of you, and the more practice you can do at home, the better that's going to work out," says Kirsten Theisen, Director of Pet Care for the Humane Society of the United States. A busy airport and Transportation Security Administration lines can be a lot for a pet to handle. "Get to the airport early enough so that you can request a special secondary screening, and what they'll do is offer you a space in a side room where they can close the door to the room and do your screening away from the chaos and the noise," says Theisen. Whether air or land, pets travel easier, with comforts from home. "Favorite blankets, favorite toys - bring things that your pet is familiar with, and has their smell and the smell of home on it already," says Theisen. "That'll help comfort your pet if they're an anxious traveler." And really gauge how your pet might react to holiday crowds and an extended trip, in the event of flight delays. If they're too excitable, or have health conditions, it's probably best to leave them behind, in the care of someone you trust.
