Opinions about Sending Dog to U.S. from Chile

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are planning to have our dog shipped to us via LAN Cargo. We are putting her on a direct flight from Santiago, Chile to Los Angeles and were wanting her to arrive on June 19th. However the more I think about it I'm getting worried that in mid june it will be too hot in LA and overall too dangerous for her. What would you do in our situation? It's not ideal but if it means our dog is safe we would put her on the next flight here before it starts to get too hot.

I think it would be better if you help her transition into the warmer weather. If she gets here in May, she'll have time to adapt but if she gets here when it's already 100 degrees, she might get sick. Also, remember it's a long flight from Santiago so she needs time to recover from that too.

My dog went from stinking hot Australia in the summer to freezing cold Georgia in the Winter with snow. He was fine.

Unless the dog will be stuck outside in sweltering heat after being in the cold I wouldn't stress. Does the dog stay outside? If its an inside dog it will be able to stay in the cool anyway inside the house and not be in the sun sweating.

That's really good to know. The dog will be inside all the time, what I was worried about was being her being stuck in the plane or on the tarmac if it's too hot out.

Not really hot, but it can get in the 90s. Some airlines don't accept dogs when its over 85 degrees

I think it would be better if you help her transition into the warmer weather. If she gets here in May, she'll have time to adapt but if she gets here when it's already 100 degrees, she might get sick. Also, remember it's a long flight from Santiago so she needs time to recover from that too.

I think so too! We decided to bring her here within the next two weeks when the weather will be nice and cool for her.
