Domestic Pet Travel Services
We understand that the thought of transporting your pet can be a little daunting. Each day we chat to pet owners who can’t see leaving their beloved pet behind as an oprtion. We also talk to excited families who have decided to rehome a pet from a shelter interstate, or are eagerly awaiting a new pup from a registered breeder.
Regardless of the scenario, Dogtainers will work with you to tailor a solution to fit your unique circumstances. We treat your pets like they are our own, and have done so by transporting thousands of pets each year right across our great country.

Our top two domestic pet transport FAQs
1. Is it safe?
Yes.We our proud of our animal welfare record. All decisions we make are based around ensuring your pets welfare. A company moving such precious “cargo” would not exist for over 40 years if we were not regarded for our welfare.
2. What’s it like for the pets?
Actually not to dissimilar to what we experience ourselves when we fly. The cabin is pressurised, the captain sets the temperature to a comfortable 18 degrees.
