Dog Gone Taxi has extensive experience with flying such breeds.

There is a lot of misinformation out there. The short answer is that there are restrictions based on weather and location (smaller airports have stronger restrictions because they cannot guarantee your pet will not be exposed to the elements).
Dog Gone Taxi pays careful attention to these restrictions and will recommend the safest transport time and mode based on these factors.
We specialize in cross-country, private drives for bully breeds in the summer months. We not only ensure that they are always in comfortable, air-conditioned vehicles, but the drivers are experienced with bully breeds and truly enjoy spending time with your pets. During multiple-day drives, the driver takes a rest stop for your pets every 3-4 hours. Your pets stay in pet-friendly hotels with the driver. You are kept up-to-date with texts and photos along the way.
We do not recommend tranquilizing your pet, as it can lead to other issues and increases your pet's risk of injury and/or death. Most airlines will not accept tranquilized animals.
