Pet Travel Question: Shipping a Dog from China to the United States

Hi PetRelocation,

Can you assist me with getting my dog from China to Houston, Texas? I will need assistance with the regulations and paperwork. My wife is currently in China until the end of June and we would like to bring the dog with her back to the United States.




Hi Jody,

Sure, we'd be happy to help you move your dog. For quicker service you can call our office: +001-512-362-6100, or you can fill out our online consultation form. The information provided here which will allow our team to look over the details of your move and they'll be in touch soon to offer you an estimate and overview of our services.

For your information, here are the pet import requirements for the United States. This is one of the easiest countries to move a pet -- essentially your dog will need an international health certificate issued within 10 days of departure as well as an updated rabies vaccine.

Additionally, we recommend choosing a pet friendly airline and making sure your dog is comfortable spending time in the travel crate, as well.

Let us know if you have any questions -- we look forward to hearing from you!
