Question Flying with dogs (a bit off topic)

Great story and pics. I've been thinking about flying with our small dog.

It's looks like you did not take any extraordinary measures to secure the dogs. I took our dog (25 lb bijon/poodle mix) for a taxi test last weekend and he did fine. I been waiting on taking him on a flight until I figure out a good way to secure him - for his safety and mine.

My current plan is to install a tie down ring on the aft baggage wall and use a short leash attached to a harness. I think a soft crate would be better but we've never been able to get him to go in a crate.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

P.S. We also bought some Mutt Muffs for him
