Dog Travel to Shanghai: Luca and Polo’s Relocation

Dog Travel Story: Luca and Polo's Move to ShanghaiIncredible Experiences: Luca and Polo's China Move Story

I was very nervous to move our 8-year old Lhasa Apso (Polo) and our 3-year old Mixed Terrier (Luca) to Shanghai, China.

The PetRelocation team put every nervous thought to rest as we began the process of moving our beloved dogs. From our preparation vet visits to every step of our dogs' journey, the PetRelocation team kept us informed and made the mind-boggling process worry-free.

Our dogs did fabulously on the journey to Shanghai! We even received a few photos of them along the way.

Polo and Luca arrived to Shanghai happy and healthy on schedule! They love their Shanghai home! We all have adjusted well.

I highly recommend PetRelocation's services for moving your beloved pets! The entire service was friendly and professional!

We will definitely use them again when we move to Singapore in 2017 and back to Minnesota in 2019!

Thank you,

Hi, My name is Jingyi. I am traveling from Chicago to Shanghai China for three months and I want to bring my french bulldog Drake with me. I found your website very helpful with the informations i need. Drake is an emotional support animal so I can bring him onboard with me. But I do need to figure out all the requirements and documents I need for me to bring them into China and back to US. Also, I’ve heard that bring dog into China needs quarantine. If so, how does it work and how long it takes. I’m looking forward to hear the answers from you. Thank you!

Hi Jingyi! Thanks for your question. You can take a look at an overview of the pet import requirements for China here. If your port of entry is Shanghai, your dog will need to complete a seven day quarantine.

We have experience moving pets to China and have helped several dogs move safely to Shanghai, including Lucy and Milo. We'd be happy to offer you further guidance about your options! If you're interested you can fill out our consultation form or give our office a call at +1.512.362.6100.
