    Hi sorry I have only just seen your message as things have been so up in the air. I'm just in the process of trying to organise getting Louie over but have been advised to use a company especially with Covid which have really complicated matters and have made it more expensive by the looks of things. I'm in UK hubby is in Oz. Some companies aren't flying pets due to Covid. I've got one quote from Jetpets for $5800 which I think is expensive but am in the process of getting some more in the next few days. How did you get on?

    I'm currently in the UK and my husband and furry friend will be joining me hopefully before Christmas. Trying to sort Louie (shitzu) first. Has anyone got any recommendations please. Covid seems to have affected quite a few companies and the only quote we have got so far is from Jetpets $5800. Is this expensive? Thank you for any advice you may give at this stressful time.

    Hi It looks like we are going to have to return to the UK as my mum is extremely frail now. We have been getting quotes to ship our small dog which is coming out at around $4,000. My husband contacted Qantas freight today and if we do it ourselves the cost is around $800!!!! I was just wondering if anyone has any experience at doing this themselves and was there any problems? I know we need to get rabies shot, vet checks and make sure all paperwork is checked with a fine tooth comb but is there anything I am missing? Thank you

    Thank you for your replies. Yes I still have English bank account Marisa. I go back to UK every year. Spent 5 months there last year as my mum was critically-ill. The reason we have to go back is to care for my mum who is 87. We nearly lost her last year bless her and she is practically house bound now. We love where we live on lake Hume victoria have most amazing views which we won't get in UK (rented) so no house to sell. I feel so guilty that my mum is struggling, her sight is failing too. I have 3 other siblings but it is always left to me. Hubby is going to stay on here and work so we have an income and eventually sell our cars etc. One day hopefully we will come back to Oz. My dog is my biggest worry. Thank you so much for your replies they have really helped x
