We will be flying from Europe to SC the first week of June. Are there any heat restrictions around this time for pets?

I am getting conflicting reports on this. Can anyone help?

Under no circumstances will I leave my best buddies behind and do not want to go through a pet carrier again. We have already arranged to drive from SC to our home state to minimise the stress on our dogs.

Any info', links or advice is appreciated.

Most likely you're getting conflicting information as the airlines set their own guidelines regarding the temperatures. My guess is that you want it to be less than 85*F when you are landing in the States.

It's from the American Embassy in the Ukraine, but the information all makes sense

When we were receiving a new puppy (to Denver from Oregon) it was crazy; they almost sent her three different times before she finally arrived.
But her breeders were the ones going through all the gyrations, so I don't know exactly how it all went down. I know it was weather related, it was early March, which in Denver can be iffy.

You cannot fly flat nosed dogs - Boxers Pugs during the hot summer months.

When I worked for an airline, we didn't have temperature restrictions because the dog would be kept out of the elements until just before the flight would push from the gate and when loaded in our particular aircraft, all live animals would be loaded in the forward bin which was temperature controlled and pressurized. This would most likely vary from carrier to carrier especially since you're flying overseas. I would recommend calling your carrier directly and get the info straight from the horses mouth, and make sure all your pets health certificates and/or vaccination records are in order.

Happy travels
