How to Move Your Dogs to Australia

Thursday, July 28, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions


I am currently assessing the options available to move my dogs to Sydney, Australia. They currently are in Guadalajara, Mexico.

I am aware that this would be a particularly difficult transportation process (that they would need to go via the United States and be there for the majority of vaccinations, etc).

I would like to know if your company has done a move from Mexico to the US, US to Australia before and of course the approximate cost.

Pet Safe Airlines for Domestic Dog Travel

Monday, July 18, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

We are moving to the San Diego area from New York sometime between September and October 2016.

We are interested in having our 4-year-old, healthy doodle travel by plane. From my research it seems flying him as manifest cargo is the wisest option.

Can you recommend airlines who deliver top notch care? My vet is a huge supporter of this method of travel for him as well.




Hi Joanne,
