What's the Best Pet Shipping Route to Japan from Boston?

Friday, September 23, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

For a potential move from Boston to Japan, how would you choose the best flight options for the least amount of stress and anxiety?

Hi Patrice,

Thank you for your question, it's a great one. Routing is one of the key parts of planning a smooth and safe pet move, and our team of experts takes...
