Dear PetRelocation,

We may be moving our dog from the US to the UAE - either Abu Dhabi or Dubai. I have read that the only way dogs can enter the UAE is by cargo. I am REALLY nervous about transporting our little guy this way all the way from the US.

Is it possible to fly to Germany or some other mid-point with him in cabin and then do the last leg of the flight as cargo?...

From: Washington, D.C.

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...
