Essentially, they must meet all rabies and vaccine requirements, so must therefore be old enough to receive all shots, etc. and...Read More

Here are some great tips about pet travel to China from a recent client of ours. Here's wishing Smokey and Al all the best in their new home!
I moved to China for work. I found PetRelocation online searching for pet relocation services. The whole experience was pretty stress free. Everyone knew what was needed and took care of everything quickly, from vet visits to paperwork.
I got door-to-door service, which is impressive since the small town in China I'm living in now doesn't have addresses on...Read More

India allowed to relocate there? What is the quarantine period and
where can I quarantine my St. Bernard?

We are preparing to move to Tokyo and have 3 dogs. Since Japan is a rabies free country, we did not want to risk the quarantine procedures, so we researched pet relocation services.
After seeing all the great reviews for PetRelocationand the quick reply from Paul about the service and cost, we chose them to handle our move. Fischer has been the first dog to be relocated fully and the process went really well. (Fischer is 13 and he...Read More

I am trying to bring a puppy that I rescued back to the United States. I have a 4 hour layover in France. Do I need to have an EU pet passport for my dog if I am just having a layover in France and I do not exit the airport?
Excellent question. Unless you are switching airlines or leaving the airport, you do not need to meet the country requirements through which you are transiting (so this means you don't need to worry about having a pet passport).

This month's featured pet move took some creative planning, but when you have a dog as sweet as Duke as your focus, everyone involved was happy to work hard to carry out a safe relocation.
Duke was living in Germany with his military mom Shannon, and when it was time to PCS back to the United States, she started looking for assistance. We were happy to help with the domestic portion of the trip; after Duke arrived from Germany in Baltimore we helped get him from there to Louisiana -- his new home...Read More
