    Default How to relocate English Bulldogs?

    I am looking for some help here. My wife and I will be relocating within the next six months from New Jersey to Nevada. We have five adult Bullies that we will be bringing with us. I really want to fly them, as I can not handle the drive due to health issues, but it seems that there is an embargo (year round) on adult English Bulldogs when I checked Pet Safe (United's pet transportation).
    Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

    I knew of the ban on bullies flying on planes. It's because of the breathing issues.

    I know there are some services where they will transport dogs for you. @kimntheguys used something like this for Remi.

    They really need to be driven - can your wife drive them with a family member riding shotgun ?

    I recently looked into this and no commercial airlines will fly bulldogs. Delta used to but had several bullies die and so now don't allow it. Petsafe is only for very young bully puppies. If no one in the family can transport them, I think you will need to hire a ground pet transportation company. Good Luck

    I actually think Continental will. I hear they're the only commercial airline that does. I could be wrong but it's worth a look. Good luck on your new move, I love Nevada and the desert. Being from NJ myself, it's definitely a change...lol

    @Davidh knows of transport maybe? I would think hiring a transport vehicle would be your best bet if you couldn't do it yourself. 5 bullies, wow. That is tough.

    I would never ever fly a bully unless it goes in the cabin with you and airlines will only allow pups under 25 lbs. in the cabin. I know a good transport company that will transport them for you. Just let me know if you want their number.

    I would also hire a ground transport if you can't drive them. I would never fly any dog. Too many variables involved that can mean the death of one or more of your animals. I friend flew her bullmastiff (who was #1 dog in the country) to a national specialty. They believe the crate was dropped, which resulted in a musculoskeletal injury, causing a pronounced limp in the dog. She was lucky. I watch the way the baggage handlers take care of my luggage. I'd never trust them with a dog.

    Oh it is so sad to hear about all the issues of bulldogs flying
    My husband and I are also relocating soon with our bulldog from Wisconsin to Los Angeles. We are going to drive it with our bully. I wish you the best of luck with your relocation and trip!!

    I was thinking about this..... there are rescues out there, that have drivers who basically have the set ups to drive all over, and I mean hundreds and hundreds of miles, with stops for the dogs etc. What I would do, is try to talk to some of the rescues, and maybe use one of their drivers / volunteers with their rigs? I mean, if they are willing to do it for the rescues, I'm sure they would do it for an individual (for a fee of course) maybe even a donation to the rescue? You can't be the 1st person who would need a service like this.

    Try Google - "dog courier service" INVESTIGATE which ever one you might use
