DogIncredible Experiences: Ellie's Move Across the Pond

When we got serious about moving our dog, Ellie, abroad with us, a friend recommended PetRelocation.

Previously, I had visions of doing the work necessary to get Ellie over here myself. From my initial contact(s) with Jon, a consultant at PetRelocation, through the many conversations held with Katy, our dedicated Relocation Coordinator, the fact that I was not doing this alone was evident and oh so reassuring.
