Pet Travel Story: Belle's Journey to England

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

belle"Incredible Experiences: Belle is Home!"

Belle was recently moved to London from Texas.

I had to leave her behind because she was too young to travel, so I ended up using PetRelocation to help me.

They really took care of her and also kept me up to date with everything. The best part of it all was knowing that she is safe and seeing her after three weeks.

Very good service. Very good staff. Love it.

How to Import Cats to the United States

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Potentially my family and I will be moving from Switzerland to Los Angeles in the next 3-4 months and are considering what to do with our cat. He has been with us for so long we would love to be able to bring him and I hoped this is something you could help with.

From your website it seems this is quite straightforward for you. Is this the case?

One specific question I had was about kenneling. We will probably need to move into some form of temporary accommodation on arrival until...

max the dog"Incredible Experiences: From Oakland, United States to Perth, Australia"

I chose PetRelocation because it was my first time ever to put Max on a plane and Australia has many strict rules pertaining to importation.

I did not want to mess anything up. I had to leave before Max, and PetRelocation helped with the quarantine process in my absence. It was great knowing that someone with the experience and knowledge to relocate pets was taking care of your pup and that he would soon be joining you...

This is my second time around using PetRelocation.

Izzy first started out in San Francisco and was transported by PetRelocation four years ago to the Boston area. It was a great move and I decided to trust them again when I relocated down to Tampa recently. 

Once again, it went very well. Garrett Breaux took time out of his Friday night to text me with updates of when Izzy made her initial flight, her connecting flight, and when she was picked up by the...

Can Mixed Breed Dogs Travel to New Zealand?

Thursday, August 18, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Can I bring my dog to live with me in New Zealand? She is a boxer mix according to the animal shelter where I got her. We think she is a boxer bulldog mix, so would she be considered a hybrid species, which are not permitted?

I really want to move to New Zealand and would be devastated if I couldn't take her with me! She is microchipped and has all of her shots.

Thanks,

Gigi

 

Hi Gigi,

Thanks for the question! Confusion can arise around the pet import requirements for New Zealand...

Nina was absolutely the best. This has been the dogs' fourth international move and by far the least stressful one for all of us despite it also having been their longest distance move yet.

She knew everything and was on top of everything and was very calm and professional and reassuring.

I highly commend her and we will recommend your company to any of our friends and family who need to move their beloved pets.

How are Pets Transported to New Zealand?

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Traveling to New Zealand would be a very long flight for my dog and I'm worried it would negatively impact her.

Do the dogs get checked on during the flight? What accommodations are made for food/water and going potty? Is the area the pets are transported in illuminated?

Thanks,

Anne

 

Hi Anne,

Excellent questions! It is a long flight to New Zealand (and to many other popular pet friendly destinations), but in our experience pets are able to handle the trip with no lasting negative...
