LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Traveling with your pet is sometimes necessary, but the process of transporting an animal in an airplane can be difficult and slightly risky. So before you make your holiday flying plans, THV 11 is working for you so your pet stays safe.
Steffanie Chin brings her one-year-old dog Zina, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, to play at Murray Park in Little Rock a few times a week.
"Go get it," Chin said after throwing a ball to Zina.
Chin has flown with the dog once, under her seat, from Little Rock to San Francisco. She admits she was hesitant.
"I was nervous about traveling with her especially because she was so young," said Chin.
Chin had good reason to be concerned. THV 11 found nationwide the number of pets dying, getting hurt or lost during commercial air travel has increased over the past several years.
