Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. I have been planning and working on a future move to Costa Rica since I visited in 2010 -- it started as a daydream but now I'm looking at making it a reality. I've been doing plenty of research - thank you to everyone in the group because there is so much valuable information here - and one thing I'm struggling to get a handle on is how to move my 3 dogs. One is a male 85# Rottweiler/Shepherd mix and although he's the biggest baby he may get classified as a 'dangerous breed' based on airline regulations, which would mean he has to travel separately as cargo. I know this involves a different type of reinforced kennel, process and documentation, so I'd love to hear from anyone who has gone through this. My others are a 60# female lab/hound mix who should be able to go as checked baggage and a little 7.5# chihuahua/miniature pinscher cross who can travel in the cabin. I moved from where I live in Winnipeg, Canada to Montreal in the past which involved flying with a larger dog on my own and it was tough, so I can't imagine how I can handle three along with luggage etc etc. I've considered that I may have to plan multiple trips but then don't know what to do with the dog(s) that are there in Costa Rica while I'm away in terms of kenneling - are those services available? Also, what is the availability and quality of veterinary care like? Is it only in major centers? Thanks in advance!
