July 21, 2014 Strong dog breeds travelling with Air Canada Cargo
For their safety and comfort, strong dog breeds travelling with Air Canada Cargo must now be placed in containers that fall under requirement 82 of the IATA Live Animal Regulations. These containers are more robust than conventional plastic containers used to transport animals.
The following breeds are considered strong and are affected by this change:
Pit-bull (all breeds)
American Staffordshire terrier
Mastiff (all breeds)
Wolf Dog Hybrids
To find out more about the specifications for these containers, please contact an Air Canada Cargo Live agent (number or email) or your local Air Canada Cargo station.
If you have an existing booking for one of the breeds listed above, please call the station of origin to obtain the correct container specifications.
