this is great as long as it’s well thought thru… most airlines have time- restrictions that don’t allow animals to travel with the luggage during the summer. Some dog types are not allowed on commercial travel at all… and if you happen to live alone at some point, and have to take road trips, the poor dog is passed from sitter to sitter… let alone heart broken every time you leave. if you have a long-term plan.. GREAT.. if not, please get one. Ive had too many teammates that had a dog for a season, and then left him in the country with a ‘friend’.
