We took Dody (25lb poodle/bijon) for his first flight last weekend. We did a short taxi and run-up test on one day and he did fine. So last weekend we when up for about 25 minutes and he did great.
We had mutt muffs on him but I don't think they were on tight enough because he had them off after just few minutes. If the weather co-operates, we're going to take him with us to Pensacola next week.
Foam plugs with a lanyard seems like a good option also.
