Here is some important info to know when transporting your dog, cat or pet out of state and/or out of the country…..

It’s always best to use a trusted Pet Transport company when relocating, shipping or transporting your loved ones. But if you choose to do it yourself, follow these recommendations to keep your companion safe on moving day.

Plan ahead. Advance planning will make your move less stressful on you and your pet. Pack over a period of time, and try to maintain your pet’s normal routine.

Invest in a high-quality, sturdy pet carrier. If you have a dog or cat whom you want to keep safely confined on moving day, get a carrier ahead of time and gradually accustom your pet to spending time in it.

Purchase a new ID tag for your pet. As soon as you know your new address, get a pet ID tag that includes your new address and telephone number(s). (Or obtain some other visible form of pet identification such as a collar with ID information imprinted on it or an identification band that attaches to the collar but does not dangle like a traditional tag.) An up-to-date ID tag is a lost pet’s ticket home.

Keep your pet secure. On moving day, place your pet (whether in the carrier or not) in a safe, quiet place, such as the bathroom, so that he or she cannot escape. Place a large sign on the door that says, DO NOT ENTER, and be sure that friends and professional movers are aware that the room is off-limits.

Pet Transportation, Relocation & Travel tips when Traveling with Small Dogs

Our dogs are like our children. We dote on them, want the best for them, and often bring them everywhere with us. However, flying with a small dog can be quite the undertaking! There are ways to prepare your precious pet for flights without the stress.

Preparation for Pet Travel and Dog Transportation: Before you leave, make sure your Pet is up-to-date on all his or her shots and medicines. Traveling exposes your pet to different germs, so make sure you’ve taken him or her to the vet before your trip. Get Scruffy treated for fleas, and make sure he’s in tip-top health. Also make sure your pet is the right size to fly – many airlines have a 25 pound limitation for carry-on crates. If you pet needs to diet, find out well in advance.

Pack Appropriately: It’s the little things that mean comfort – for your dog, too. Be sure to pack a favorite coat or blanket if you’re traveling to cooler climates. Bring enough of your pet’s particular brand of food, as toy dogs are sometimes more picky than their larger counterparts. Most importantly – don’t forget to bring a leash. More and more airports have dog-friendly areas, and you won’t want to keep your pet locked in his or her crate simply because you forgot the leash.

Pet Travel Carrier: This is an extremely important purchase. Your pet will be in the crate for long stretches at a time, so make sure it is tall enough for the pooch to stand up in and turn around, but the right size to fit under the airline seats, as well. Include a favorite blanket for comfort, and be sure to acclimate your pet to the carrier well before the trip. Place your pet in it for short stretches, gradually working up to longer and longer periods. Take your dog in the crate on short car trips, and try a practice trip (to a hotel, or a friends’ house) to make sure there won’t be any in-flight freak outs.

Dog Travel and Pet Transportation in the Air: If you feel comfortable, ask your veterinarian about a light tranquilizer for your pet. If he or she can sleep through the flight, everyone will be happier. Give the tranquilizer a test run before the trip, as some dogs may become sick or more anxious as the drug kicks in. If it works, sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight.

When Panic Happens: If your pet does become anxious on the flight, begins barking or chewing, do not panic. Your anxiety will only tell your pet that there is something to worry about. Try draping a light coat or blanket over the crate – don’t tuck it in, ensure that air can still flow to your pet. The darkness may be soothing and send him right to sleep. If your dog is disturbing other passengers, ask a flight attendant for help. They may be able to place you in a quieter area – they are there to help, and have probably dealt with this situation before.

Most Important Advice of All!

Above all, do not take your pet out of his or her crate while on board the plane. This will get you and your pet in trouble with the flight crew, and if your dog happens to escape, it will be extremely difficult to find him in the cramped cabin. Wait until you are on the ground and in an approved pet area before letting your pet out on a leash. The airlines will appreciate it, and your pet will too – unfamiliar areas will only frighten your pet more.
