Tips for Traveling Safely with Aggressive Dogs

Monday, March 9, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Name: Judy
From: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
To: Sydney, Australia
Pet: Casper (Pekingese, male, 5 years old, 13kg)

Hi PetRelocation,
 
We have moved to Australia and are eager to now bring our pet Pekingese here. How safe will it be for him to travel in cargo for the entire flight of around 9 hours? Which airlines can we use, as Malaysian Airlines do not take snub-nosed dogs? Also, he is aggressive to strangers and other dogs -- will this be an issue?
 
We appreciate your kind assistance and thank you...

Hello :)

I am totally up the creek without a paddle with no clue of what is needed to relocate my cats. Do they need vaccinations, and if yes, what sort? Would there be a very simple way of relocating them other than using very expensive companies that specialize in this?

Any information you could send my way would be appreciated.

Have a great day :)

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,
