Pet Travel Story: Transporting a Bulldog to the UK

peachIncredible Experiences: Peach's Move to the UK

We began planning Peach’s big trip about four months before our move from Boston to London. We were excited about the professional opportunities in London but very nervous about the potential risks for Peach! We needed to be sure we were taking every precaution before we committed to the move.

After consulting with several relocation agencies, we felt the most comfortable with PetRelocation. Evelyn and Linda kept us on track for every milestone (vet appointments, travel booking, crate training in the travel crate, etc.).

For travel to the UK, there is a very tight timeline that must be followed to avoid quarantine. One part of this is a USDA form that can only be sent a few days before travel and must be certified before the trip.

When Linda realized that Peach’s forms were caught in a backlog, she got in touch with the agency and made sure that we made the deadline.

Peach arrived safe and sound after her flights from Boston to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to London (the most direct route, since Lufthansa is the only carrier that will accept snub-nosed breeds for transatlantic flights). We couldn’t be happier that she is back with us!

Here's a picture of her relaxing by Regent’s Canal.

Thank you!
