Default Lucy in the Sky...

This is our Lewellyn Setter Lucy in my RV6X last summer.
Just not enough room realistically and comfortably in the baggage compartment for her, our gear, her stuff and anything else on long trips. One of several reasons I chose to sell it and purchase a Maule M5, a throwback to my youth and an amazing platform in it's own rite.

However, the RV15 possibilities loom...

Default One of the best

Smokey
I may have told you before but this is by far one of the best pictures I have ever seen.

The bond between a dog and his master is undeniable.

Thanks for posting!!

Default Large dog in RV-6

I have been flying with my Pyreees-Husky puppy since it was 8 weeks old. It is now 10 months old and 80 lbs. Took the passenger seat out of the RV-6 and built a corrugated plastic box to put him in and keep him clear of the panel. So far it still works but a bit of a tight fit.

Default Dog in the doghouse!

Cleco, our 3.5 year old rescue dog is the “dog in the doghouse.” She’s a good sport!

Default Weiner Takes Flight!

He was a little freaked out. Anybody have good suggestions for Mini Dachshund hearing protection?

A woman was pitching an active noise cancelling headpiece for dogs on Shark Tank last night. Her angle was to protect your dogs ears from loud booms during fireworks etc rather than airplane sounds. Maybe she would of done better with a dogs in airplanes pitch. Google “Pawnix” if interested.

It's hard to say. But after taking off my Bose A20 in-flight in my RrV8 at 200mph....it's pretty loud. Dogs with their sensitive hearing? Can't be good .Now every dogs head, size, ear location might be different. But the key is getting a good seal around ear area. Tried the PawNix active noise system my mini weener dog. Just didn't work on his small head, could stay in position.Not cheap either $180.
Mutt muffs didn't seem to help either. Gaps in the ear cups and area around straps lets noise right through. But some people, mostly large dogs, seems to be nore effective.
Just found one that fits his head perfect. It's called 4Paws for dogs hearing pro. Small size fits his head and most importantly seals around his ears. Tested it at home recently. Seems to be very effective. He ignores us when we call him for dinner so I guess it's working. Will see in airplane next week.
Cheers
