Pet Travel Question: Returning to the United States with Dogs

Name: DaNeil
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Dachshund/ Jack Russell cross
From: Lakenheath, Suffollk, England
To: St Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.

I plan on moving back to the States later on in the year and I want to take my dog with me. I have no idea of how to go about it. Any information you can give me, including an approximate cost, would be appreciated. Thank you,



Hi DaNeil,

Shipping dogs to the United States requires a bit of preparation, but ultimately it's not as complicated a process as going to many other countries would be. You'll need to follow a few basic procedures (here are the full pet import requirements for the United States), book a flight with a pet-friendly airline, and buy an airline-approved travel crate if you don't already have one.

Many pet owners choose to enlist help with arranging all of this, and if you're interested in our services we'd be happy to offer a price estimate. We look forward to hearing from you!
