I am so lost about where to even begin to plan travel for my four-legged baby. Any help you can provide would be wonderful!
Thanks for contacting us with your question! We'd be happy to offer some assistance -- most people begin the pet travel process feeling pretty anxious but the more information you have, the easier it becomes to put together a safe trip.
To start, here are the pet import requirements for Italy. You can also check the USDA website for additional details. Your dog will need to be microchipped and then receive the basic vaccines as listed. You'll also want to choose a pet-friendly airline, help your dog grow accustomed to the travel crate, and possibly hire an agent or pet relocation professional to help you.
For your reference, here are a few frequently asked pet travel questions and answers. Hopefully this will help to get you started, and if you have more questions or would like to find out more about our services, you're welcome to contact us.
Good luck with the trip!!
