How Do I Know My Pet Will Be Safe?

Our 40 years of experience is testimony to the care we take, with a focus on your pet’s welfare. Pet transport by air is a fast and efficient way to move your pet from A to B with the least amount of hassle. Just like you, your pet flies in a pressurised and air-conditioned cabin with the temperature set at a comfortable 18ºC by the captain. The compartment is lit dimly, so your beloved animal can see what is going on around them. However, most pets spend their time dozing to the gentle hum of the aircraft.

Pets can sense your stress and will start to feel uneasy too. So, it’s important you remain calm and carry on as normal in the lead up to their relocation. Dogtainers will handle the rest with the utmost care until you and your furry friend are reunited.
