Questions And Answers
PADA testing helps ensure that only well-behaved and stress-resistant dogs are allowed on board, promoting a safe and comfortable travel experience for all passengers and their furry companions.
To get your dog PADA certified, you need to have them assessed by a certified PADA evaluator in an approved institution. They will evaluate your dog’s behavior, sociability, and responsiveness to training, among other criteria.
PADA assesses the temperament of dogs, focusing on traits such as friendliness, boldness, aggression-free behavior, and being people-oriented. Dogs with these characteristics are more likely to handle airports and plane surroundings with ease. While not all dogs may pass the test, PADA helps identify dogs that possess the ideal temperament for a stress-free travel experience.
PADA was chosen based on extensive scientific research and is widely recognized and utilized in many countries. Its effectiveness and reliability make it the preferred choice for evaluating a dog’s temperament. Additionally, the international database associated with PADA allows airlines to easily access and utilize the information for their specific purposes.
PADA certification is not breed-specific, and dogs of all breeds can undergo the assessment. The focus is on evaluating the individual dog’s temperament and suitability for air travel, rather than the breed itself. As long as a dog meets the necessary temperament requirements, it can be eligible for PADA certification and fly with the proper documentation.
The PADA test is designed to identify dogs who are well-suited for air travel and can confidently navigate the airport and cabin environment. If your dog does not pass the PADA test, it may indicate that air travel could be challenging for them. While it is still possible to travel with your dog and have them transported in cargo, this can potentially be a stressful experience for them. We recommend considering alternative options, such as leaving your dog in the care of a trusted individual or a safe environment at home, unless travel is absolutely necessary. We are here to support you in making the best decision for your pet’s well-being.
