Looking for the best option.

Flight - Jet says no, Spice says yes. For nearly 15k just for the dog. Am also worried about the Boxers breathing problems, etc. in the flight.

Rail - Am exploring options to take her with me in a 1st class compartment. I read its allowed.

DO NOT take it by air. Short muzzle dogs are at a very high risk in air travel.

If you are going on vacation, then I would suggest that you leave your dog at a pet boarding at Pune. It will safe you the ordeal and the dog. On NDTV good times, heavy petting had mentioned some good options and one of them was run by a girl which I really liked. Check the website and contact them.

If you plan to move to Leh, then may be a flight to Delhi or so and the drive. The atmospheric pressure can be a problem in a flight and the car might be a better option. I agree bhartan regarding short muzzle dogs. A lot of airlines overseas do not except dogs in domestic flights also.

Only boing 737s or larger will accept ur dog.Spicejet do not.Indian r extremmely unpredictable.They will ask u to come 3hrs in advance,and ignore u for 2 and half hr.They never know which aircraft is alloted and does it hv oxygen in the hold.Most probably last moment they will lift their hands.Postponing to their next flight and morning to evening story repeats.Jet airways r easy if u r travelling in same flight.Charge more,But u do not hv a choice.Wooden crate of size dog can stand,turn and sleep is needed alongwith vet vaccination and fitness certificate.For some unexplained reason they do not accpt IATA standard pet travel plastic crate.U r charged by volume and excess baggage rate even if u do not hv any other luggage.There is no risk travelling. u can even ask the air hostess to confirm the temp.& pressure in the hold .As per IATA rules they can not refuse to carry ur companion dog with u.But like all rules in our wonderland India,it is more friquently broken than followed.
I am not sure but how the dog will fare,after reaching Leh.Do u hv vet help on hand there?What season u intend to go?cost including crate should be around 10 k.

thanks Pradeep. Was dying to hear the words "There is no risk travelling."

I've confirmed MY tickets on Spice. They have assured me that live animals can be taken along.

I'm flying to Srinagar. I'll spend a day or two there, and then taxi till Kargil and spend a day or two there. And then take a taxi to Leh. On the way, I want to make sure that San-Te (dog) and I acclimatize well. She needs it, for obvious reasons. I'm going on an expedition end of May, so I need to acclimatize well too.

I'd still love to talk to someone who has taken a boxer in a flight...

Almost every show boxer kennel has imported their dogs,frm Europe and Australia.Quite a few boxer pups r sent to Delhi,bombay and Kolkatta frm Bangalore.3 times that no. of pugs ,even in whelp reach Bangalore frm Bangkok totally hail and healthy. U know pugs' breathing is far more compromised than boxer.Do not worry.There is only as much risk as u travelling by air.

I transported my Doberman GSD mix (with a long snout) on a Jet flight. the dog was physically OK but seeing the anxiety that it caused him I will never do it again.

Hi Mr.Bedarkar,
Air transport is best option available, but you have to follow the rules Right ?.
Don't Believe on Airline's policies they are so stupid, you know whats the worst part is.. they dont care bout our problems.
So do exactly what i say, i have sent more then 100 dogs & pups, you can trust me!!!

You need a health certificate don't mention your dog as a pure breed. Boxer mix should be mentioned in certificate this will skip every short nose short muzzle problems according to thr policy.
You need a Fibre Cage, costly but very comfortable,re-saleable & compact.

You can contact me for more details.
