About Us


Why Choose Dogtainers for your pets transport?

We are animal lovers like you! We are proud to have Dogtainers, animal behaviourists, animal rehoming volunteers, vet nurses and all-breed dog show judges, among our staff located right across New Zealand, Australia and the UK.

Dogtainers first started moving pets when we assisted Ansett Air Freight with the technicalities of pet travel way back in 1971. At that point, we were known as “Dog Containers” which eventually shortened to Dogtainers. From this time Dogtainers started to grow into a truly national network that we are today.

Dogtainers is New Zealand’s most experienced pet relocation company, handling the responsibility of safely transporting pets throughout New Zealand and the world since 1971. We offer trusted and reliable pet travel solutions, so you can be sure that whether your animal companion is travelling domestically within New Zealand, internationally to a new and exciting overseas destination or coming home to New Zealand, we have a service and the expertise that is right for you and your animal. Transporting pets safely and comfortably is what we do all day every day.
