    Check out Nephin Kennels

    WestJet will be Toronto or Montreal....
    Fly to Samana or POP on this side.... ,Punta Cana on the east

    Cheaper too....

    I brought my 2 pugs on Jetblue from JFK.(Less than 20 pounds).
    They have being living with me for the past couple of months without any problems.
    However ,they are definitively some precautions to take which may not be available to all.

    I am lucky enough to live in front of the beach so they can take advantage of a nice brise most of the day.
    I walk my dogs early morning and in the evening.They go out in the middle of the day for a very short time .Can stay in the shade when windy. I have A/C in the house which is a must for those kind of dogs for some of the very heat day/time of the day .Fan is always running in their room.

    Bottom line, if you love your pets as I am and if you do have those kind of dogs very sensitive to heat ,you really need to take extra precautions in DR .If you are not willing to do so or you cannot, for the health of the dog ,it's certainly better to find an other loving family from where you are coming from !

    West jet is the best for flying pets ...I just flew back home and puppy was in back row... cargo is another thing because of extreme heat..
    we do not accept pets as cargo from May 15 to October 31 on any flight from these WestJet Cargo destinations:

    Dominican Republic (Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Samana)
    Mexico (Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta)
    United States (Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Houston)

    If he is still small enough, he could fly in the cabin. I don't believe the breed restrictions apply to cabin travel!

    Correct on JetBlue. Does not have any breed restrictions
    However ,pet needs to weight less than 20 pounds and be put under the seat in a specific bag.

    https://www.jetblue.com/traveling-to...ling-with-pets

    Service/emotional dogs don't have the weight/size required .
    However ,it's getting more restrictive to have your pet flagged as service dog.
    Jetblus changed the rules recently :

    hard to qualify a puppy as a trained service animal... I think

    pet flying has become quite a game recently....much harder

    Does anybody know how I can get my dog down to DR
    Thank in Advance,

    If a puppy can she still fit in a travel bag under your seat as a cabin dog? AA charges $125 and JetBlue $100

    I called air canada. They don't ship the breed. I do have someone to watch the dog. So Im praying westjet is a go.

    Jetblue is a go as a emotional support animal. Going to cost around 150 $ from an online service.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback!! Now time to cancel my Delta flighy as they banned Pitbull type dogs July 10th, even as emotional support dogs. Smh..
