IATA Approved Flight Kennels
All dogs shipped by air should be housed in a IATA approved kennel which can be suited to how big your dog being transported. Food and water should also be within the kennel for long journeys and some airlines do exercise any dogs being shipped in the hang on significant stop-overs but also for security reasons, this is simply not something that you (if you’re travelling for a passing fancy aircraft) could be allowed to do yourself.
Transporting your dog to USA
Relocate your dog to USA by having an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as for instance Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk). You know your dog relies on you to make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA. These rules were created to ensure your dog is not unduly stressed by the travel and which they get to the US in good condition. However, we’ve been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually exceed IPATA guidelines because we would like both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we could only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.
The good thing about shipping your puppy to the USA from the Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country such as the UK is that there is no quarantine requirement provided that your dog has been around the UK for 6 months or more. However, your dog will have to have documented evidence to be vaccinated against rabies otherwise this will result in entry delays since you will be asked to sign a Confinement Agreement (this basically says you will get your pet vaccinated and then confine them for no less than 30 days after treatment). If you’re importing a puppy that is too young (usually under 6 months of age) to possess had the rabies vaccination then you definitely will require a Confinement Agreement, see: USA CDC Dog Confinement Agreements for more details. Whilst the CDC (US authority on pet imports) doesn’t require your dog to really have a certificate of general health MOST AIRLINES DO REQUIRE THIS before they will alow your pet to board an aircraft.
Generally, all dogs must certanly be imported or exported through one of many
