Anyone taken their dog from UK?

Asked by: 18th April 2013

We are thinking of buying a villa in Playa Blanca and would love to have any feedback from people who have experience of taking their dog from the UK.  

I have a shihtzu who I’d hate to leave behind when staying for a number of weeks.  My fear is the length of time that she would be in a small travel crate.  Having read online information it appears that an outside agency makes the arrangements, which can prove costly.  They also state be at the airport 3 hours before and add that to flight times and delays and that could mean my poor little dog being in a small crate for 7 – 8 hours!!  

I know she loves to sleep for most of the day anyway but it sounds so cruel!  I would appreciate any feedback from people with experience to alleviate my fears

I know she’d miss us if we had to leave her at home and would hate the alternative of staying in kennels.
