We LOVE our 2 Miniature Schnauzers. They travel well, are just the right size and temperament.

I'd say, stick to small to medium-size breeds. Less food to bring, and sh*t to pick up.

Shih-Tzu dogs are great (full time even) traveling dogs. We have had three and just love them.

5# "designer breed". Chihuahua, Yorkie, Cairn Terrier is the vet's best guess. Tinker Belle is a great companion!

Mutt. Never met a dog better than a pound puppy or rescue dog. And hey they are inexpensive to purchase and eternally great full to you for getting them out of those cages. My Bailey is just perfect.

I've got to agree with JandJ. We have always had shelter dogs and cats. We have been fortunate to get them as puppies and kittens.

We travel with 2 girls, Annie and Lacee. Annie is 9+ years old. She is a 70 lb. Gordon Setter/Gloden Retreiver mix. Lacee is 9++ years old. She is a 32 lb. Brittany Spaniel/Beagle mix.

The two boys are cats, Yoda and Whisper.

All are great companions to travel with. We never travel without them.

Since I go mostly for dog events - travel with 1-3 golden retrievers, 1 rhodesian ridgeback. The best of all, the queen, my old rescue stays home and enjoys her peace and quiet spoiled rotten by my family who also stays home. Then, once home, she gets a special trip out for ice cream. Life with my dogs and my family - does it get much better?
