    Question Bulldogs and International Travel

    Hi,

    We are working out the logistics of moving from NYC to London. We are unsure on how to get our Bulldog over there, as it seems flying is quite risky. Has anyone else dealt with such an issue and if so, what's the safest way to go about it? We have a handle on what shots etc he will need, it's just the actual travel part we are stuck on.

    Cheers

    I definitely wouldn't fly them in the cargo hold of a plane, very dangerous, and a good way to loose your babies.

    Do they have to go into Quarantine once you reach London?

    Look into jet-a-pet. They are a private jet company that will fly your pet in the airplane with a kennel like set up. Your dog has a personal travel companion and you are updated frequently on your dogs status. They also have options where they can bring your dog from the airport to your new home. It is more expensive, but G is my fur kid and I'd spend any amount to make sure he arrives safely at our destination. Hope you find a safe way to get your baby to London!!

    I have a friend who took her bully, Lucy, to Italy for the summer. She was certified as a therapy dog, so she got to fly in the cabin. Please, don't fly your dog in the cargo compartment. Airlines promise they have safety standards and act like it's routine, but there are so many horror stories of dogs being mistreated or dying from heat or just the shock of flying like that.

    We had a our pug and cat coming back from Germany many moons ago (i.e. 1981). Please check England's requirements and find out exactly what certifications you require and on what forms. You might want to check the State Department's website. I was totally unaware of jet-a-pet but sound like a great alternative. And of course Al Gore had not invented the Internet until the 1990's.
