Jack in GermanyIncredible Experiences: Jack's Journey from the Texas Hill Country to the Hills of Germany

We were thrilled to be moving to Europe, and the only hesitation was how to get Jack moved with as little anxiety as possible.

Historically he was super anxious just riding in a car, so the thought of putting him on a plane had me stressed. And then we found PetRelocation! From the very first communication I began to feel better, and once I had the chance to talk through the process with Catie I knew it...

pippa"Incredible Experiences: Pippa Goes to Switzerland"

Sarah and I were communicating almost daily to get my Pippa to Switzerland from the USA. 

I can't imagine my life here without her in it, so I'm glad there's a company like yours to help move animals across the world. 

The move was handled with complete professionalism and allowed me to worry about every other aspect instead of my pet's. I will definitely use your service again when moving back to the USA.

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.




Hi Gigi,

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

Sarah was fantastic, responsive and well able to deal with my panic! I highly recommend anyone to move their pet with her.

Everything was well organised and Dingle arrived safe and well, took a while to adjust to the time change and temperatures and is now a happy Irish dog again. I think he misses the squirrels though!

Minnetonka Animal Hospital are also wonderful. So sorry I didn't find them when I arrived in Minnesota.
