My mother is bringing our dogs from the US to the UK, where we have moved. She is flying out of Calgary, Canada, to London Heathrow with a layover in Amsterdam. The agency we used misbooked the dogs as luggage instead of cargo and now they are going to be stuck in Amsterdam. What should I do to get them to the UK? Is driving them going to be faster than trying to fly them? Thanks! -Lawni

Hi Lawni,

Thanks for your inquiry! Check out the United Kingdom Import Rules and Requirements here to see what you'll need to bring the dogs into London. We'd suggest checking with the airline you'll be using to what they have to say about your situation, and feel free to contact us if you'd like to speak to one of our knowledgeable Pet Relocation Specialists.

Good luck with everything!
