Tips for Arranging a Low-Stress Pet Relocation in the United States

Hi PetRelocation,

I want to relocate with my dogs but obviously can't be in two places at once, so my question is, do you kennel them for a few days while we move ourselves and household?




Hi Fred,

Thank you, great question! Moving with pets can be complicated for many reasons, and arranging a timeline is often one of the trickiest things to manage.

Typically we do work with our clients to arrange boarding on one side or another. It's often easier for pet owners to move first, take care of the major aspects of their relocation (getting into the new house or apartment, unpacking the pet necessities, etc.) and during this time the pets can stay with a friend or trusted caretaker and then follow their owner when the time is right.

If you were to enlist our help, we could certainly help to arrange boarding. From there, our agent would pick up your dogs from where they were staying and then take them to the airport and check them in for the flight on the day of departure. If you decided to have your dogs travel first, we would have an agent on the other end to pick them up and bring them to a boarding facility (or wherever they were going to stay).

Arrangements like this can make life much easier for both people and pets, so just let us know if you'd like to discuss your options with a PetRelocation Consultant.

Finally, here is an overview of the domestic pet travel process -- the information here may help to answer other questions you might have about traveling with your dogs. Good luck with everything and let us know if we can be of assistance!
