International Pet Transporters from nZ
We’re proud to be the preferred shipper for Blind & Low Vision Guide Dogs, NZ Defence Force, conservational hunting groups including Native Range and international agility trial teams such as the Paw Blacks.
With over 50 years experience, we specialise in international pet import to and pet export from New Zealand.
Whether it's pet import into New Zealand or pet export overseas, we are happy to be the first choice of cats and dogs flying to or from Aotearoa. Some factors determine your relocation fees. These include your pet's breed, how many pets you have, the airline you choose to fly with, the country you're moving to (or arriving from) and when you want to fly.

Pet Transport NZ international Press & Media clippings
We are fortunate to work with many hard working dogs doing incredible things the media love writing about. Specifically, our work with conservational hunting dog troupes has attracted international attention in National Geographic and the BBC for saving the unique birdsong of the South Georgia Pipit:

These are complex international jobs, requiring multiple import and export clearances and end-to-end logistics for groups of live animals over tight timeframes. It is fascinating to learn more about the valuable services these hard working dogs provide to governmental bodies both here in New Zealand and overseas. These articles were also written about the South Georgia Heritage Island hunting conservation trip we organised:

Pet Transport NZ Fly Guide Dog Puppies to Wellington
Puppy Guide Dogs for people vision impairment begin training at 9 weeks with a placement with a trainer family in the community. Just like our international pet transporters, a good Guide Puppy Raiser is someone who is caring, patient and responsible. Puppy Raising is a 12-15 month commitment and during that time, Puppy Raisers are responsible for:
- Making the pup part of the family, keeping them safe and playing with householders.
- Attending weekly-fortnightly training sessions in your local region.
- Teaching the pup basic skills including walking nicely on lead, good house manners and providing regular socialisation experiences.
- Establishing good toileting, feeding, sleeping and walking routines as advised by your Puppy Placement and Development Advisor.
Pet Transport NZ love how Blind Low Vision NZ fly Guide Dog Puppies and trainer dogs around the world from NZ to enable inclusion, mobility and independence for Blind and Low Vision users everywhere. Blind Low Vision NZ Guide Dogs are funded entirely by private donations, if you are interested in becoming a Puppy Trainer or donating please call 0800 366 283 (DONATE)
PET TRANSPORT NZ Attend ipatacon Hawaii
This was our first international member conference since Covid-19 and a celebration of new travel routes, freight and logistics options available to us we were unable to access during lockdowns. Talks, lectures and breakout opportunities offered unique ways to leverage learnings from other importers, exporters and veterinary health experts from around the globe. A whirlwind of business activity and thought leadership was drawn to close with the Annual Gala Event and awards presentations. We value deeply the connections we made on this trip and look forward to seeing everyone again in Dubai 2023.
