Pet Travel Question: Moving a Large Dog to the Bahamas from Canada

Name: Carly
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Great Dane
From: Toronto, Canada
To: Nassau, Bahamas

My parents are relocating from Toronto, Canada to Nassau, Bahamas and need some advice on how to transport their Great Dane. They have contacted a number airlines but haven't had much luck as he is over 150 lbs and too tall for most crates, even large ones. They would be willing to take a ferry from Florida if that were possible.

Any recommendations you might have for us would be greatly appreciated.




Hi Carly,

Thanks for contacting us with your question. Relocating large dogs does add some complexity to the process, but don't worry, it can be done. Here are a few tips for moving large dogs, and in terms of the crate you'll probably need to special order a custom one or add crate extensions to an existing one.

Here are the pet import requirements for the Bahamas to let you know about the other rules and restrictions. Hopefully this is helpful, Carly! Please contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck with the trip.
