Wednesday, July 29, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi,

I would like to know what are the regulations for importing pets (specifically Pit Bulls) into the state of Nevada.

Thank you.

Regards,

Sonia
 

Hi Sonia,

Thank you for your question! As far as United States and Nevada import rules, there are no regulations against importing Pit Bulls. In fact, Nevada is one of a few states that has banned breed-specific legislation and in general the country is growing more Bully-friendly all the time.

However, you will need to check with the airline you're...

Preparing for Dog and Cat Travel to the UK

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
 
I am relocating from Philadelphia to the UK and would like to know what I will need to do to get my animals home safely. I brought them both out here in 2010 and I would like to get them back as smoothly as possible.

Sid is a pug, which seems to be a breed not accepted by most airlines. I do not want to put them in any kind of quarantine. I would like the most direct route for them and to cause them the least amount of stress.

Thanks,
Helena

Pet Travel Q&A: "Can My Dog Fly in the Cabin?"

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
 
I must have my dog Wesley traveling with me in the cabin, not in the hold. I need him to be with me, as I get panic attacks when flying and he helps enormously to calm me down. He is a very well behaved, non-aggressive dog, loved by everyone who knows him.
 
Thanks,
Silver
 
 
Hi Silver,
 
Thank you for your inquiry! Whether or not your dog flies in the cabin or cargo completely depends on the rules of the airline you fly with. Generally speaking, pets usually need to go in the cargo...

Incredible Experiences: Shaq & Luke's Trip From Argentina to Mexico!

Tuesday, July 7, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

luke & shaqIt is always so hard to let your dogs go in the hands of other people, especially when you know they will be stressed out by everything involved in a relocation process.

My two boxers, Shaq & Luke (both 4 years old), flew from Buenos Aires to Mexico City. As no Latin American airline flies boxers due to regulations against short nosed breeds, the boys had to fly through Houston.

This was awful, since instead of getting home in one plane and one night, they had to fly on two planes and had almost...

Traveling With a Lhasa Apso to the United States

Thursday, June 11, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I'm planning to move with my 5-year-old Lhasa Apso to Boston around the second week of August. From whatever information I could gather on the internet so far, KLM and Lufthansa seem to be the most recommended options.

However, most airlines state that snub-nosed dogs are not allowed to travel due to possible respiratory problems. Can you share how safe/risky it is to travel with them on a flight as long as about 26 hours (including the 7-8 hour layover)?

5 Tips for Traveling Safely with Snub-Nosed Breeds

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 by Pet Travel News

pugPugs, English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Persian cats and other snub-nosed (or brachycephalic) pets require special care when it comes to air travel.

These breeds are more susceptible to heat stroke and breathing problems when exposed to stress or high temperatures because of their facial structure and hereditary respiratory issues, so travel is more risky for them.

This doesn't mean short-nosed pets can't fly safely, but planning a smooth trip requires a little extra preparation and attention....

Hey guys!

So I had to move from Moscow to Singapore in May 2015 and relocate my two pets -- a dog and a cat. They had to fly halfway around the world, go through a 30 day quarantine period (mandatory for all pets coming to Singapore), but they were finally delivered to me two days ago.

Having gone through the exercise, I am very glad I did not try to do it all myself and would strongly advise anyone against relocating their pets on their own.

Relocation is a...
