Merry Christmas 2015! As usual, I spent the Christmas holiday dashing through airports so that I could spend time on the east coast with family and friends. This means my official dog tag has now logged 31 flights since joining my pack in November 2009. Wow, much air time!
For air travel, I fly in cabin with my people in my custom made Celltei travel bag. Five years ago, the nice folks at Celltei helped design a bag that would work on cross country flights to keep me as comfortable as possible. Most adult shibas will be too large to fly in cabin, but if you are on the smaller size, or are still a puppy, you may be able to do so. You can see more images of me in my Celltei bag on previous trips in these posts:

For dogs traveling through the San Diego (Lindbergh Field) Airport, the airport has an indoor pet relief area which makes it really convenient for traveling with your dogs. This is an amazing addition to the air travel for dogs, as air-side pet relief areas are fairly nonexistent. The San Diego facility is located at Terminal 2 West between gates 46 and 47. It is a small, 75 sq ft space that has a fun fire hydrant and fake grass. Dog bags are available inside.
I hope wherever you spend your holidays, that they are filled with great adventures!
