Q&A: What is the best bedding for dog kennels being shipped on airlines?

Question by Sarah M: What is the bedding for being shipped on ?
I have two dogs that my husband and I will be relocating from California to Ohio in June. Trying to find the best type of bedding for their kennels for the plane trip. They both shred puppy pee pads so I am hesitant to put those in with them. Anyone have any recommendations from experience? We have a female 30lb husky and a 16lb dachshund mix. Thanks!

OOH! I love huskies!
My suggestion would be old towels or blankets laid down over newspaper.

Thats what a puppy I ordered online came in (it was a husky)

    I use newspapers. It doesn’t matter if it gets shredded or dirty. The airlines only allow certain materials.

    A very thick layer of news paper and a old blanket or towels over that. Make sure they are walked before being placed in the crates. Make sure they have a water bottle and some food also. If possible have vet administer a mild sedative to them so they remain calm.

    A piece of fleece would be best; they don’t like to shred it for some reason. See if you can’t get a flight that changes planes midway so they have a chance to get out during the trip. And see if you can get peanut buttered Kongs on board so they’ll be busy. Good luck!

    Keeping a fully grown Husky in a cage and you are surprised that it’s shredding things ? They are smart dogs, who need to be challenged mentally. You may want to place some kind of thinking toy in the cage, what you use on the floor is largely irrelevant – they are both going to hate this trip.

    A small rug or a blanket/towel would work if they shred the puppy pads.
