|Actually, Titan, you can't do checked baggage with dogs in crates over a certain size/weight, but they will accept giant breeds as cargo.
Guest, the DOT/FAA rules specifically state the types of crates allowed and none of the airlines will accept a collapsible or wire crate. There are some crates that they will accept that do not use screws; I've shipped quite a few dogs in those types of crates including international shipping. Then again, I obviously use zip ties as extra protection since screws can come undone.
OP, depending on where you are departing from, you may need an acclimation certificate. That will allow you to fly the dogs if the temps are below 45 yet above 20 at your flight origin or destination.
