Dogs make excellent traveling companions. However, many people are forced to leave their four-legged companions behind when planning vacations or business trips. Separation anxiety in pets is true, and it can be heartbreaking for their owners. Consider bringing your dog along with you if you don’t want to leave them at a pet hostel or with a family member. Yes, because train rides can provide you with the comfort and seclusion of home.

A pet dog can be transported in a dog box in second-class luggage and brake vans, according to (SLR). A dog is allowed to fly with the passenger in AC first class and first-class compartments only if the entire coupe is booked for exclusive use by the passenger or group of passengers. A dog in a dog box is charged at the train’s luggage fees, which are 30 kg per pet dog. Dogs can be transported in AC first class and first-class luggage for a fee of $60 per dog. They are not permitted in the AC2 tier, AC3 tier, AC chair car, sleeper class, or second class compartments.

It should be noted that both first-class and AC first class have separate cabins/coupes for pets to ensure that other passengers are not inconvenienced. “Because Rajdhani/Shatabdi trains do not have dog boxes, booking of pets in dog boxes is not permitted.” “On other trains, only one dog box is available, and only one dog is booked each train on a first-come, first-served basis,” according to the website’s material. There is no need to make a reservation in advance. One hour before train departure, pets can be reserved at the counter. Dogs in dog crates will be accompanied by their owners, who will feed them on the way. If there are a lot of dogs, special horseboxes can be provided, up to 36 if the dogs are enormous.
