The puppy also has to be able to comfortably stand up and turn around in the crate. According to air Canada, even my 7 lbs papillon isn't allowed to fly in the cabin because she's too tall when she stands up and her head touches the top of the carrier so she has to duck. She can still stand and turn but that's not ok. That's not considered comfortably enough...

Haha if Australia was a 5 hour flight I would have visited there a hundred times already! Always wanted to go.

You'll have to wait and see! I don't want to announce anything yet until I know for sure what's happening. :-)

It's a breed I've liked for a long time though. I remember when I was 10 or 11 I wrote this story in school about me and my future dog of this breed haha. Over the years I didn't think it would actually ever happen, as other breeds took my interest, but this is one that constantly keeps coming back and crossing my mind. I feel really good about the breed (and breeder) decision. Only one downside: it's a fluffy breed too and all I can think of is the now 8 furry grinch feet I am going to have to trim every month, and the now 4 fuzzy grinch ears I will have to tidy monthly also between Dance and puppy. But that's ok. Hair is pretty, even if it is a little extra time consuming!

Really? I would have thought most small dogs would be fine, but apparently not. Definitely lots to look into. I wonder if different airlines have different rules? Probably not though. Hopefully she'll be able to be small enough to fly in the cabin. We'll see. Lots to figure out!

My puppy just slept through the entire transAtlantic flight. But having the breeder get the puppy used to a crate is probably very helpful. If you stick a puppy in crate that has never been in a crate, likely it's going to cry.

I am flying my new puppy home in January under my seat. I also fly very frequently with my small dog under my seat. The majority of the larger airports do have an area for pet potty but you must plan on a long wait between flights (or until your flight) because to get to the potty areas you need to go through security.
Once you are checked in, you can hang out wherever you want in/around the airport. Once you are through security you have to remain in the airport. I make sure to potty before hand. Tire and play with puppy before going through airport...yes the puppy will be okay, people fly puppies under seats all the time.
Yes, technically you cannot take your puppy out from under your seat but the majority of flight attendants are friendly and don't care if you sneak the puppy up for a little loving.

My money is on Aussie or Border Collie.

Since you won't satisfy our curiosity as to the new breed of choice, will you share what happened to Koolie plans? I'm sure that wasn't an easy decision to make, it seems like you were very ready for the new pup.
