Hi PetRelocation,

Dear PetRelocation,

I brought my 12-year-old neutered, male dog to Germany with all the necessary paperwork. We arrived December 7th and now plan to return to the US in a couple weeks. This is about 4 1/2 months apart.

Is it necessary to use a vet here in Germany to administer the rabies and/or all other vaccinations once again? I would rather not if I can avoid it. As my dog is senior, I want to reduce as...

Incredible Experiences: Hopping the Pond!

Name: Chad
Pet's Name: Fargo
From: San Francisco, CA, USA
To: Dublin, Ireland

In making the decision to move for a bit to Dublin, relocating Fargo was probably the biggest consideration. We knew we couldn't leave him behind, but knew very little about the process of relocating a dog to Europe... other than loosely understanding that Europe has or at least had quarantine requirements for pets.

We definitely didn't want to pursue the move if it wasn't going to work for Fargo. Early in the process we...

Hi there,

We're moving to the Dominican Republic in the Summer of 2015. Many airlines seem to say you cannot ship a dog if the daily forecasted temperature is 85 degrees or higher, and it appears to be over 85 in the DR all year long! Is there some sort of way around this rule? Using a professional shipping company or something? Thanks for your help!

Best,

Hi,

I've been researching individual airline guidelines for transporting dogs, and have found that the restricted breeds are often subtitled "brachycephalic or snub-nosed breeds," which I thought referred to dogs such as pugs and English Bulldogs. However, pure bred or any mixed breeds of Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are listed in the...

Hello,

I am moving to Guatemala this summer for a job and I am bringing my dog with me. He is 10 and I am a bit worried about his age when flying. Will this be a problem? Cockapoos do tend to live longer, so this isn't really as as old as if he were another breed.

Is there an alternative to shipping him in a regular cargo area on the plane? I am worried about their temperature restrictions...
