Gypsy loves travelling. Her first holiday was to a farm in Berrybank. She was fascinated by sheep and loved running in the paddocks. Gypsy also flies with Qantas, who allow you to check your small dog for free as your 'checked baggage'. You can always add excess baggage for $20 if you would like to take a checked suitcase as well as your carry on. We have found this to be the most affordable option and have been pleased with the Qantas staff and their care with pets. Gypsy travelled with four other dogs on her recent flight! We hope they keep each other company on the plane ;-) We opt to fly her as 4 hours alone in a travel cage is worth it for a long holiday surrounded by family & friends.
We are fortunate that Gypsy loves car trips. She often sleeps on longer drives. Some of her cousins don't travel so well in the car so it is up to the individual dog. We took her in the car from a young age and make regular stops. Regular bursts of fresh air over air conditioning help us all too ;-)
