Pet Shipping Company or Airlines

A pet shipping company is something to really consider when moving with a pet. The airlines have many restrictions and rules that must be followed in order to move a pet. The added cost of hiring a professional third party pet transport company, will prove to be well worth it in the long run. If you decide that you would like to handle the coordination of your pets move on your own, you must be sure to follow the rules and be properly prepared, airlines have strict guidelines which must be followed. Here are a few things that are required by airlines for your pet to travel. The proper size kennel is a must, a recent health exam and health certificate is also required, international transport of pets is certainly not easily executed. There are very specific steps that must be followed to gain entry into many foreign countries. Many airlines now require that passengers with pets traveling internationally, hire a pet shipping service to handle their pets relocation. Airlines also have many restrictions on pet travel, not knowing these restrictions can lead to disaster. Many times information provided by airlines over the phone is simply incorrect. This leads to people potentially showing up to get on a flight with a pet and being told that they are fine to fly, but their pet will not be permitted. Navigating the airport, knowing the routing, timing of flights, proper preparation, and weather are just a few more reasons to consider a pet relocation service to expedite your pets relocation. Preparation is always the key, hiring a professional guarantees all bases are covered.

I just found out that as of Feb 1, in order to fly a puppy from Toronto to the US TSA is requiring the services of a custom broker, anyone know about this? We don't need a full service pet transport, we have the crate, the health certificate etc. We just need someone to serve as the shipper to satisfy the TSA pinheads- any ideas?

I was just about scammed too. I was looking in to getting a english bulldog. They started out saying that they were from Cameroon. After reading the posts on this site, I asked the person how the puppy will be shipped. They said Camair. The persons name was Frank and Jennifer Awemo. email jawemo@yahoo.com.

One thing you can do is ask the people you are talking with to take a picture of the puppy with an object of your choosing (coke can or a piece of paper with your name on it.) If they don't or make up an excuse, they are a scammer!!

Now days pet shipping services are having a great boom because majority of people are in need of this service to transport their pets to other locations.

There has been a growing trend, where people are moving from one country to another because of job opportunities. As exciting as it is moving to another country and experiencing a new culture in some cases, the stresses of moving so far away are beyond compare. If you are looking for international shipping companies in Toronto stay here.
