Recently Pet Transport NZ had the pleasure to transport a competitive sled team of Husky dogs, 8 in total, from Alfredton, to San Francisco. Here they are at home on their farm in New Zealand, just south of Ekatahuna just before they departed the Wanganui-Manawatu region to relocate to Reno.
Pack owner Mark Roberts is a nutritional scientist who just completed his PHD at Massey University School of Veterinary Science and College of Sciences where he focused his studies on the distinctive diets of dogs.
Specifically, his research looked into the effects of dry commercial food in domestic dogs. Mark orients most of his work around wolves, which he then relates back to domesticated dog breeds.
Whilst transporting dogs to the USA is part of our day to day, and flying Huskies overseas is fairly routine, 8 at once and team of sled racers at that, certainly drew the attention of our travel consultants and Air New Zealand ground crew who were on hand to assist with cargo loading on departure day.
We are grateful to Mark for sharing his photography of his 8 dog's travel experience from New Zealand to USA, including pictures of them settled into San Francisco life.
We wish them all the best for their new life and future sled racing success. You can learn more about Mark and his work at his website: www.k9natural.com
At Pet Transport NZ we specialise in transporting groups of pets together, including troupes of working dogs, agility trial teams, NZDF dogs, Blind Foundation Guide Dogs and other pets which may require multiple clearances through different countries. The USA is just one of many international locations we service. If you would like to discuss the import, export or domestic transport of your pets, please contact us today.
Pet Transport NZ sent 2 husky dogs and a chihuahua from Auckland Airport to London Heathrow this week. Sending 3 dogs together often makes international pet travel go much smoother than sending pets overseas separately. These darling dogs were lots of fun to send to the UK from New Zealand!
The husky dog with brown fur is Bungle and chihuahua pup pictured below is Bryn. The last picture , taken at Cargo Central of Auckland Airport moments before we handed them in, is of Rudy. These 3 dogs were such a pleasure to send to UK from New Zealand - they seemed excited for their flights!
When you are sending dogs to UK, it is really important to let them stretch their legs before flying. The last walk in New Zealand before any international pet transport is a really key part of our service. We pride ourselves on making your dog's last moments on Auckland soil really enjoyable.
Dogs flying to UK from New Zealand need exercise and a toilet opportunity before they leave. We also top up their water and slide them a few sneaky treats before flying to London. If you are moving to the UK with pets, get in touch with us today and ask how we can make your move easier! We'll explain which vaccines are required and how to crate train your dogs or cats for the big move!
