Hi, all!
I am going to be moving from Los Angeles to Toronto, Canada. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations for air travel for our favorite breed? Jack is 2.5 years old, 13 inches & 17.5 lbs. He is too big (too tall) to ride in-cabin, so he must go in baggage. It is a cold time of year (we are flying at the end of January) and it seems the airline only has to keep the cargo area at 36 degrees or higher (Fahrenheit)

My inkling is that this is too cold for Jack. But maybe I'm just ignorant? It's about a 4.5 hour flight, so i imagine he'd be in the cargo area for about 6 hours.
Any insight on this matter would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
