Santa Fe New Mexico – Pets Welcome in the Mountains

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Santa Fe has a special charm to it as a Mexican town located here in the US. It is the oldest state capital in North America. The original colony was established by the Spanish conquistador Don Pedro de Peralta in 1610. The heart of the city is the Central Plaza, around which the town revolves. Santa Fe is a quaint town with a poplulation of 68,000 that is not sure if it is a small town or a larger city. Sixty miles by highway from Albuquerque, it sits in the mountains at an elevation of 7000 feet so it is not as hot as most people think of when they think of summer in New Mexico. Dogs like the cooler temperatures as well. Santa Fe is a dog-friendly town, with unique B&B lodgings, small hotels and specialty lodging and shops.

Need to Take a Pet to the Caribbean? Try Air Propel.

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

These are high cost charter flights, not scheduled airliners. But you can take your dog with you in the cabin.

Would you like to travel with pets right next to you? PetPropel makes flying with cat or flying with dogs a simple task.

AirPropel believes your pet is special. That is why your private flight can include flying with pets in cabin with you. You can travel with dogs while reassuring them all the way. Oh and by the way, ask us to recommend pet friendly restaurants?
We understand the loving bond between pets and their owners. That is why PETPROPEL will do everything possible to offer an enjoyable flight for all souls onboard.

It is important to consider medical/health certificates, temperature, entry into foreign countries, and breed/pet temperament.
Before traveling with your pet, schedule an appointment with a veterinarian. Let them know of your travel plans and ask for a health certificate that should be granted within ten days of departure.

Because of extreme weather conditions, the time of year you plan to travel can be important. Your pet will travel with you inside the temperature-controlled cabin of your chartered aircraft, yet temperatures at your destination may be temporarily shocking for humans and pets. Consider extreme differences from frigid snow country to balmy, humid southern islands. Your pet will be exposed to different insects in different climates and your veterinarian should be consulted.

Foreign countries have varying requirements for pet entry. Check first and request necessary document forms. Airpropel’s staff can help with obtaining these forms and all information you may need for entry.

The breed of your pet along with your pet’s temperament is also a consideration. Pug nose pets may have breathing concerns. Temperature and pressure control in the cabin, especially at high altitudes, will make flying with these types of pets safer. Knowing your pet’s temperament may help decide if your pet should be in a secured kennel, an opened kennel, or on a leash in the airplane. Airpropel will make sure your pet feels safe, secure and comfortable.

If the pet is traveling alone, an Airpropel representative will be happy to meet your pet at the airport and see him/her on their way. When required, a representative can accompany your pet to its destination and receiving caretaker.
