    Putting a dry dog in an un-pressurized, un-heated cargo hold would be a really bad idea. That’s why airlines put them in pressurized, climate-controlled areas of the hold. Stress is the most common problem, which the pool may help alleviate. Owners who sedate their pets hoping to solve the stress issues are also a problem.

    Another issue is high or low temperatures on the tarmac during loading and unloading. Most airlines restrict such travel during outside temperature extremes for this reason.
