Tips for Traveling With Dogs to the United Kingdom

Hi PetRelocation,

Could you provide me with details of the process of moving two dogs from the United States to the United Kingdom?




Hi Simone,

Thank you for contacting us, we're glad to help!

First, take a look at our guide to United Kingdom pet travel -- this five-part series covers all the most important details involved with planning a safe pet relocation to the UK, including information about import requirements, cargo pet travel and the arrival process at the Heathrow Animal Reception Centre. (We even included a few pet travel stories so you can hear what the process is like from pet owners who have already made the trip.)

It's important to start early, especially when it comes to mapping out your timeline and acquiring the right travel crates for your dogs. Crate acclimation is also key -- it helps pets enjoy a far less stressful trip.

Take some time to review this guide and then contact us if you have further questions! You're welcome to set up a consultation with one of our UK Consultants should you decide you'd like to hire some assistance.

Good luck with everything, thanks for reading, and let us know if we can help to plan your dogs' move!
