Relocating pets from New Zealand this month has seen a whole lot of moving pets to Canada! August has been full of sending dogs to Canada, and some back again! So here are some of our favourite regular clients and furry friends plus some tips for shipping pets to Canada successfully!
Our biggest international pet transport clients this month were the MacDonald dogs, a team of working dogs we flew to Canada last month. Half the troupe of dogs had their contracts extended and remain in Canada working. The other half were sent back to Auckland to complete 10 days of quarantine together before going home to their farm.
Although return interntaional trips are not the norm at Pet Transport NZ, we are proud to be the world leaders in this pet travel field. Return flights for pets are not a common thing due to the added costs and logistical complications of 2 exports and reentry requirements into New Zealand. However, where there is a will there is a way! This is not the MacDonald dogs first return flights overseas from New Zealand with us. nor is it likely to be their last!

From the outside, Pet Transport NZ looks like cute puppies and fluffy kittens all day long. And it is! But that doesn't cover the complexity of international pet transport. We are proud to be the official pet transporter for the New Zealand Sheep Dog Trial Association and the Paw Blacks. Both champion dog teams are international title holders. Every year we fly their prize-winning trial dogs with their handlers from New Zealand to Australia for their agility competitions.
We also arrange their return pet transport to NZ. Return pet flights are unique to Pet Transport NZ. We are the only pet courier providing round-trips from New Zealand. This is because pet transport, from any country in the world, is actually pet export. The government of the country the pet is leaving must approve the pet is fit to fly and a local pet transporter must oversee this process. We have agents operating in the UK, Europe, USA, Asia and Australia that allows us to provide return services.
Working dogs like these are highly trained to respond to specific command words. Say the wrong thing to the wrong dog and you might have a pre-flight situation at the airport! For this reason, working dogs must be accompanied by their human handlers at all times. Every vet visit, airline and MPI requires the attendance of the human they are trained to respond to.
Moving dogs to Australia is similar for the NZ Police. These working dogs are also trained for particular command words and need to remain with their handlers at all times. When they travel to Australia for specialised training, we assist with their return trips from New Zealand. Flying guide dogs for the Blind Foundation requires human attendance as well
