Transport of fighting dogs

A Frequently Asked Question: Is my "fighting dog" allowed to fly?

In principle, yes. However, it is important to understand the regulations which apply in the respective country, and also to monitor your dog closely to avoid any risk of unpleasant surprises.

A professional consultation with our animal transport experts is particularly important before any travel planning takes place for journeys involving dogs legally described as "fighting dogs". A crucial feature for the safe and appropriate transport of these animals is the choice of a suitable transport box.

Dog breeds such as American Pitbulls, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Argentine Mastiffs (Dogo Argentinos) or Kangals must be transported and flown in special boxes. These made-to-order custom products are built from strong wood and feature specially designed grilles which prevent a travelling dog from opening the box and causing any damage inside the aircraft. Flight safety must always be guaranteed and is the highest priority.

Our expert assessment will be a great help to the dog owner before commissioning any custom-made box for a fighting dog.
