I’m heading over in March with my pup, a lab. I’m using a pet relocation company, World Pet Travel. So far they’ve been great. If you aren’t planning to use a relocation company, I’m happy to help you through the steps for transport, at least what we have learned. Let me know!

When/If we move back to the s
