moving dogs from turkey to usa

25 10:04:45

I am currently living in Dalyan, Turkey and need to send 2 dogs back to their breeder in Dallas USA as soon as possible.  Could you please tell me your thoughts on the best way to do this, either sending them cargo or with a pet shipper (which I would like to avoid because of cost) or to accompany them.  Thanks so much for your advice and help.

Using Lufthansa or KLM from Istanbul to DFW is your best bet.  If they travel as cargo you may
be required to use a pet shipper.  Thanks to TSA.....
If there is a passenger, then the dogs could travel as excess baggage.  Much cheaper and would
clear customs with the passenger.
