Unaccompanied Pet Travel to the United States

Name: Jane
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Mix

My dog must travel unaccompanied. :(

I am not in Germany to arrange the matter personally, nor will I be in the US to collect her upon arrival. What is the procedure when third parties are both sending her and collecting her at the beginning and end of her journey?

Thank you!


Hi Jane,

Thanks for the question. We help pets fly unaccompanied all the time (it's often much easier to do it this way, as it allows the pet owner to plan their own schedule with less stress). You will simply need to enlist help on either end, either by hiring individual agents yourself or by going through a service like ours.

We arrange pet moves from door to door and would be happy to discuss your plans with you and offer a price estimate. Feel free to call our office at your convenience or fill out our free quote form.

For your information, these are the pet import requirements for the United States. It's actually a pretty straightforward country to bring pets to compared to other places, so you won't have to worry about rabies titer tests, quarantine, etc.

Hope this helps! Again, we'd be happy to talk to you about your move, so just let us know if you have any more questions.
