Snub-Nosed Pet Travel: Two Pugs Move to Germany

We hear a lot of concerns from owners of snub-nosed breeds about their ability to fly long distances. See how one pet owner felt after her experience moving two senior pugs across the Atlantic. 

I accepted a job that relocated my husband, Austin, and I from Atlanta to Berlin, and the most important part of our move was making sure that our two senior pugs, Chubs and Taters, were able to make the move with us.  

Neither of the pugs are light enough to be carried onto the plane, and therefore, we partnered with PetRelocation to ensure that our fur babies made it to Germany safe and sound.  

We coordinated with Katy on our move, and she provided us instructions and updates every step of the way.  She even went above and beyond to make sure that Chubs received last-minute medication after suffering a seizure a few days prior to our departure.


PetRelocation cared for my pugs as if they were their own, and even provided me photos during the pugs' stay at the animal lounge in Frankfurt.  I could not be happier with the service that PetRelocation provided, and am happy to report that Chubs and Taters are loving life in Berlin.  Believe the hype—-the PetRelocation team is the real deal—-and I highly recommend them to everyone!

I would like to relocate my two young pugs from UK to China where my partner and I are moving for work. Is this possible and has this been done successfully through the no quarantine airports? They are both 2 years old and are our babies!

Do you relocate a small bird from South AFrica to UK
