    The long standing policy has been that dogs are allowed in the camping areas "that don't require a wristband." That does not include flightline camping.
    Now that EAA has announced that kids get into AirVenture for free I wonder how many pet owners will identify with their dog as being a "kid?"

    The last time I flew commercial I noticed a number of dogs (on a leash) in the concourses. I assume these are the new "emotional support animals" that folks can't travel without. What next? We have a Vacation Rental home in Texas with no smoking/no pets and still get a number of requests to bring their dogs. The answer is "no" by the way.
    If God had intended man to fly He would have given us more money!

    Vacationing with pets, and bringing your dog to work has been a "thing" for a couple of years or so. More and more hotels/motels accept pets. That said, there is a fee at many locations for bringing a pet. If you have a rental, you might consider that kind of policy as income that offsets the cost.

    When my wife has been away I took her Dachshund to my office and everyone who was there thought it was a cute thing. Its hard to be upset about the crisis of the day when there is a little brown dog sniffing your feet. Butters is well behaved and not noisy.

    Best of luck,

    No, more hotels are accepting about dogs. Once you move away from dogs, you'll find they are as hostile to pets as they always were.

    We don't live or die financially with our "no smoking/no pet" policy at our VRBO so it pretty much works for us. Guess that's off the Oshkosh subject anyway. Once a dog chews up furniture or decides to use the table leg as a fire hydrant because the owners are unreliable it's a problem.....but back to Oshkosh....

    Per my previous post, "emotional support" animals have no legal status and owners have no right to demand access for them. Regarding airports. Smaller dogs (and other animals people sometimes mistake as pets) are sometimes allowed in the passenger cabin as long as they remain crated and can fit under a seat or they have their own ticketed seat. Owners will typically let them out of their crates before and after flight. That is a lot less expensive and a damn sight safer for the dog than putting it in the hold.

    Last time I traveled with my own dogs -- in the baggage compartment -- my wife and I were allowed to retrieve them on the ramp. That was also a good thing for all concerned. many airlines won't handle dogs as large as Rottweilers at all any more. We bring our current set lots of places for socialization (at 9 mos., they are still puppies) and one really likes coming with me to the airport. I have no idea why. I would never, however, bring them to an airshow. When she gets full grown, I might see if I can rent her out as a tug.
