At the recommendation of our consulting veterinarian, Continental Airlines will now require the following to reduce stress and heat exposure, when shipping or handling the above-mentioned breeds: Use 1 size larger kennel than is normally required. Use a kennel with ventilation on 4 sides. (If the kennel does not have ventilation on 4 sides, modify the kennel by drilling 7 holes in the rear top and 7 holes in the rear bottom of the kennel using a 3/4 inch keyhole bit). Acclimate the animal to the kennel by letting the animal spend time in the kennel for several days before their departure. Do not place food in the kennel during the flight, just water. Provide plenty of water to the animal (including frozen water bottles with tiny holes punched in the sides makes a great watering tool for several hours when placed in the kennel's watering dish).
