It may be a trip across town doing errands, a road trip through the states, or a jet-setting trip, can you bring your Pomeranian with you and would he or she want to go?
Pomeranains love being with their owners more than anything in the world. This can include traveling with you in the car or on a long trip requiring air travel. Most Pomeranians will adjust and love traveling but, each and every day and trip will be different.
Do Pomeranians Enjoy Traveling
Every dog is different but, Pomeranians as a breed adjust very easily to traveling with you.
Most Pomeranians would prefer to be by your side then stay at home alone.
Pomeranians get very attached to their owners and are vulnerable to developing separation anxiety.
If you start bringing your dog with you, he or she will easily adapt to that lifestyle.
Do Pomeranians Like Car Rides
My Pomeranians love car rides, they can’t get into their travel carriers fast enough.
That said, we have been bringing our dogs on an adventure since they were very little.
If your dog hasn’t had that same experience he or she may not be as excited about car rides.
In general, Pomeranians love to be with you and are happy to jump in the car with you and go for a ride.
Can You Bring Your Pomeranian In A Uber
If you are planning to take an Uber and would like to bring your Pomeranian with you, you can if you happen to reserve an Uber Pet Car.
You will have to make sure that you are getting an Uber Pet Car and additional fees or a higher rate will often apply.
Can You Bring You Pomeranian In A Lyft
Lyft as a company does not have an overall pet-friendly policy.
You will need to check with each driver to see if it is ok for you to bring your dog with you in their car.
Can Pomeranians Go On Buses
Taking a road trip and not sure if your Pomeranian can go with you on the bus?
You will need to check with your exact bus company but, in most cases, only certified service dogs are allowed to travel with you.
Can Pomeranians Go On Air Planes
Many airplanes will allow Pomeranains to travel with you in the cabin.
You will need to check with your airline to confirm if this is possible or not.
I suggest doing this before you book your flight and make sure to only go on a plane that will allow your Pomeranian in the cabin with you.
If not, it is a life-threatening situation for a small Pomeranian to fly in the luggage and cargo area.
My husband flew our puppy Duke back from New York to Florida with Frontier and had a great experience.
If an airline allows dogs in the cabin there are often extra fees and reservation requirements which was the case with our Frontier trip.
Can You Bring Your Pomeranian On A Train

There are requirements and reservations will need to be made for your Pomeranian.
Contact Amtrack trains directly for more information.
Is It Hard To Travel With A Pomeranian
It isn’t hard to travel with your Pomeranian as long as you are well prepared.
It’s always best if your dog is used to going with you often.
Dogs that are used to traveling in dog carriers and going with you on daily errands and adventures are going to be a lot easier to travel with when you approach new situations.
When traveling with your Pomeranian make sure that you have all of the necessary supplies like food, bowls, water, vaccination paperwork, harness, leashes, and your dog’s favorite toys.
Also, make sure to not forget any medications that your dog might need.
Is It Stressful For Pomeranians To Travel
The amount of stress that your dog will experience will vary depending on the dog.
Some dogs travel well whereas others may experience stress and anxiety.
Those dogs that experience anxiety while traveling may start to drool, breathe hard, pace, shake, whine, bark, and seek your attention.
If you know that you will be traveling with your dog in the future it’s best to practice traveling with some local trips around your town to see how your dog responds.
If you expect your dog to be stressed or have anxiety speak with your vet ahead of time, they may be able to prescribe something to help your dog with the stress.
