None at all, my Gsd travelled at similar from Frankfurt to Bombay.
All the best.

|I just had one shipped 2 days ago and she was 6 months old.. a little wobbly at first, probably like us with a touch of jet-lag !! but none worse for wear! The cargo people were all very helpful and kind to my little girl! Good luck!|

|4 months is the next set of the "fear stage." Not sure if this is a good idea. Can it wait a couple of months?|

|I have shipped a few 4 month olds and had no problems. If she is not confident or showing fear on the ground then possibly not but if not, then why not?|

|Not true on the Fear factor...SHIP the pup...NEver had a problem with one..|
YOu cannot ship a pup under 10 weeks so 16weeks is great , no problem unless it is a weak nerved pup..

|I shipped one at that age, but used PetAirways because it was easier and actually cheaper. Awesome experience. I wouldn't worry about cargo, though.|

|My last one was about that age and came out of his crate at the airport like he owned the place and peed on the lawn where we took him too, not phased at all. Good luck!|
