I was planning to drive from Ontario to Newfoundland for Sept 1 2012. I have a large truck (Chevy Tahoe) and two large dogs (GSD and Doberman). I am told that to board the ferry I must either leave my dogs in my truck (which I cannot visit during the voyage) or bring airline approved kennels on board and leave them in a kennel room.
My dogs are crate trained, but the stress of being in a room full of dogs for 6 hours concerns me so my preferred option would be to leave them in vehicle - but I wonder if it would be safe. I have never left my dogs in a vehicle for that long unattended.
Has anyone taken the ferry with dogs . I could flip the back seat down and have water for them.
