Incredible Experiences: Max's Journey to Spain

Monday, April 6, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Name: Christine
Pet's Name: Max
From: New Brunswick, Canada
To: Alicante, Spain

Max is my son's dog and they lived in New Brunswick, Canada. Sadly, due to family circumstances my son had to return to Europe unexpectedly, so this started Max's journey.

He was kenneled, and as my son would not be returning to Canada in the near future we decided it was time to move him to Europe. I trawled the internet and was so impressed with PetRelocation's website and all the great comments that I contacted them....

Hi PetRelocation,

Can you folks recommend a US airline-approved cat carrier? I am flying on United from New Jersey to DC, but they have requirements for the crates that I cannot find here in Israel.

One cat is going to be in the cabin with me and my other two monsters will be in cargo. I see many kinds of carriers and crates online, but their pictures do not show how the two pieces are bolted together. I would appreciate any guidance!

Incredible Experiences: Maya's Trip to Germany

Thursday, October 9, 2014 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Pet's Name: Maya
From: Washington, D.C.
To: Germany

When my family and I found out we were going to be moving to Germany, we had to decide how we were going to get our dog Maya there.

I first had tried another company, but that would have been a multi-stop trip, which would have given her over 24 hours in her kennel. We didn't want that for her, so I had talked to a friend about how she got her dogs shipped and she told me about PetRelocation.

From the first call I had I was put at ease...

Hi PetRelocation,

Could you please tell me if there are any vaccinations required for my cats' trip to the United States? I understand that they need a healthy pet certificate 10 days prior to the fight, but what else might happen in this case? Also, would they have to be put in any kind of kennel for observation upon arrival?

I would greatly appreciate any and all information you could give me on this!

Thanks,

Thank goodness for PetRelocation and in particular my kind assistant there, Anna Wasim.

The Australian regulations for importing animals are very complicated and, if not fully complied with, instead of ten days quarantine it becomes six months. I was terribly worried about my two little Chihuahuas, litter sisters who have never been separated. Amongst the awful regulations was one that insisted they travel...

Kasha, the 12-year-old English Cocker Spaniel and the Queen of the household, has successfully touched down in Ohio, US.

Pet Travel Spotlight: Boarding Facilities in Zurich

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 by Pet Travel Questions

We recently helped a client move their dog to Zurich, Switzerland, and because the owners were arriving after their pet, it was necessary to find a boarding facility to use during the transition period (this happens a lot with international moves).

Zurich happens to have some of the nicest facilities we've seen, and our agent there snapped a few pictures to share. Take a look at this top-notch kennel -- it seems like a place any dog would love to stay.
