    Moving dogs to Australia - help

    Hi guys, I'm planning on flying my dogs over at the end of the year. I looked at the agriculture.gov.au site at time lines to visit the vet etc. It says you need to get a vet to write a note to confirm what you'e done at each appointment, ie to confirm they scanned for microchip and vaccinated against rabies, my vet said he doesn't need to give me a note as everything will be logged on the computer, did anyone else get their vet to write a letter each time they visited the VET? My next question is, one of my dogs is 9, I'm taking her for a pet mot to make sure she' healthy to fly. Does anyone have any stories of flying senior dogs over to Australia and if so, how did it GO? Thanks

    Dog to Australia

    My husband and I are moving out to Australia at the end of January 2018 and we are taking our beloved pooch with us. We have chosen a travel company to fly her with but I am so nervous for her to fly and the idea of her being in her crate for over 24 hours scares me a little. I would love to hear some people's stories on there pets journey to Oz from the UK just to get more of an idea of the process the dog goes through and how you dogs got on after the flight and quarantine. Thanks in advance.

    Does my dog HAVE to be quarantined?

    Hi is there any way at all I would be able to fly my dog over and get him straight out the other side? Thinking of him in quarantine is gut wrenching and I can' bare to think of him in doggy prison ?

    Do you live in a small town?

    Hi, I'm looking to hear people's experiences of living outside the major cities. I have previously been sent as a nurse to a tiny NSW town called Molong for 6 weeks and loved it and had such a sense of community Can you tell me about life in the small town you live (in any state)? whats the job market like? what is your house like? what do you do for fun? How accessible is it to the next major city? Were emigrating back next year and i cant face living in a big bustling city again - we now have 2 dogs too which makes it impracticable - thanks

    Pet Insurance for dogs in Australia

    Hi I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of whether pet insurance is as available in Australia as it is here in the UK? We have a minature schnauser and working cocker spaniel that we intend to ship with me when we migrate and would be keen to understand whether we can insure them when we get them over and how much it might cost compared to the Uk? The dogs are 6 and 4 yrs old. Thanks in advance. Andrew

    3 Dogs & Renting in Perth

    Hi all, I looking to come out on a 457 visa ,with wife & 2 girls, looking at other sites, it looks impossible to bring our 3 pet dogs out, as it seems the maximum can be 2, & we,d be renting has anyone else rented with more than 2 dogs.
  10. Hi Everyone. We are in the very early stages of planning our emigration to Oz and before making the final decision to move to the other side of the globe we really could do with some help and advice regarding the shipping of our 2 Dalmations. If all goes to plan they will both be 10 years old when we manage to make the move and we plan to be in Melbourne. We've been to the vets this morning and given the all clear for them health wise plus Dalmations can live until around 14/15 yrs however our concern is that we have heard some horror stories about the conditions for pets whilst being transported on the flight (extreme temperature differences etc.). There is no way that we would consider rehoming them, they are our family and we feel that emigrating is not a good enough reason to rehome family members. Has anyone had a simlar experience to what we are going through and if so how were your dogs upon their arrival to Australia? Were they visibly stressed? Are you able to visit them regularly whilst in quarantine? What type of crates are best? In fact any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, D&G
  11. Hi all, Found out on Friday that our 176 State Sponsored visa has been granted so as soon as the house is sold we're on our way!!! We've got 2 dogs, a bulldog and a westie and are planning on taking them with us (against my better judgement). What carriers did anyone use and what sort of price are we looking at all in? Thanks, Shaun.

  13. Hi all, Like many of you reading this, I am planning on taking my German Shepherd to Oz in July. I live in Brisbane and am in the predicament of sending her to Sydney or Melbourne. Sydney is closer but I've heard from someone that Melbourne cares better for dogs by the fact it's smaller and has more staff per animal. Can anyone gve me any feedback on this? Thanks in advance.

    Most Expensive Dog Breeds

    1. The Löwchen - a small, long-haired dog that was popular during the Renaissance but which became virtually extinct by the 19th century. Now revived, a Löwchen puppy fetches between £3,000 to £5,000 on average. 2. The Canadian Eskimo Dog - another breed that almost went extinct. 3. The Samoyed - A medium-sized fluffy Siberian sled dog, Samoyeds have become popular at dog shows, but are a high-maintenance breed. Puppies go for between £2,500 and £4,500. 4. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Can command a princely sum of anywhere between £600 and £9,000. 5. Rottweiler - Rottweilers can come with fearsome price tags of between £1,500 and £5,000. 6. Tibetan Mastiff - The world’s most expensive dog because of high demand from Chinese millionaires, but it is still possible to get puppies for between £2,000 and £3,000. 7. English Bulldog - Male bulldogs can easily crush females during breeding, so artificial insemination is common. The large size of their heads also requires a Caesarian section for birthing. All of which adds up to a price tag of around £1,500 to £2,000. 8. Eygptian Pharoah Hound - Again, because of its rarity, these dogs can easily fetch £1,500 to £2,000. 9. Bearded Collie - A working dog originally used by Scottish shepherds, it can fetch £500 to £600. 10. Akita - A Japanese breed, named after Akita Prefecture, these dogs cost between £300 and £500.

    BEWARE - Rentals and Pets

    I want to let you all know how hard it is to find a rental with a pet in Perth at the moment. I wish someone had advised me of this before I made the decision to move here as I would not have arrived without accommodation sorted. I left my dog in the UK, he is due to fly out next week... sadly though I can not bring him as I still can not find a rental that allows pets. I am crushed... I cry every day and basically if it does not happen soon then I am going to go back to the UK with my family in tow. Everyone says 'get over it, it's a dog' NO... He is MY dog, MY family and I want life with him... I would NEVER have left him in the UK... from day 1 he was always coming... I honestly thought I would have found a house ready for his arrival... but no... there is nothing!! Please, please bear this in mind... I have not only shed a million tears, I have also lost a hell of a lot of money too :sad: (So you know, I am looking for a 4x2 NOR Perth WA)

    Dangers for dogs?

    Hello lovelies. We're looking at trying to move over at some point in 2013. However, one thing that worries me a little is whether my dog will be safe. I can only bring one of them over, so will bring the clingy one as my boy will be content without me and staying with my mum, but I know she would pine horribly and I can't put her through that. Basically I'm a bit worried about things like snakes and cane toads; how do others cope with this? I mean, if I let her out in the garden and she does her Schnauzer thing and is typically nosy, what if she disturbs something and gets hurt? Should I just let her out on lead at night when I can't supervise fully? Would love your input, the one thing worrying me most is this! I want my girlie to be safe.

    Dogs in quarantine

    Hi there! Well the Satchdog is currently ensconced in Spotswood Quarantine, and appears to be managing to wind the staff around her very pretty paws She arrived last Wednesday (19th October) and is due to be released on Friday 18th November. That's 22 whole more days until I can collect the darling girl She wasn't settling in the first kennel - with the big dogs, so they moved her to the mediium sized runs and she settled right down. Funny enough the new kennel is much closer to the office and right on the path everyone walks down, so now she's much closer to the action. I think that's probably what's made her happier - it's not that she prefers the company of smaller dogs - she just likes seeing what's going on! Now she's also got her toy puppy to carry around I hope she settles down a lot more - fingers crossed in any case! 23 more sleeps until the Satchdog is back where she belongs!!

    Flights for dogs over Christmas?

    Well I have just realised that after 30 days in Quarantine our dog will be released right on Christmas Eve! He is going to eastern creek and needs to be in Adelaide, what I would like to know is will we be able to arrange a flight for him in this period. He might have to end up hitching a ride with that fat man in a red suit in his reindeer powered vehicle! :eek:
  20. Hi. I am looking to ship 3 dogs out to emerald in queensland. Due to time it is unlikely that this will be done before the rule change on jan 1st so i'm taking the for rabbies jabs next week anyway. I have a couple of queries. 1 I know there is a rule on ownerhip of more than 2 dogs but you can get a license for another if you follow a certain procedure, Has anyone done this? was it difficult? 2 I have seen on here it is about £2000 per dog, is this for flights and quarentine or 1 or the other? 3 if i did send all 3 over would they be able to be shipped in the same 'cage' or would they need to be seperate? 4, I n qurrentine would they be in the same kennel or seperated? Many thanks in advance, Marc.
  21. I am almost ashamed I ever skydived. They've gone and put an idea into people's heads and I fear it will tarnish the sport in people's minds :cry: :cry: :cry: :no: :no: :no:

    Dogs in perth

    Hi all, ive applied to emigrate to perth. I have 3 dogs, and i believe i can only take 2 dogs. I have to heartwrenchingly pick one dog to leave here. Can anyone tell me how the dogs cope with the heat etc there as one of my dogs gets quite warm here, but she is the kids fave dog, so really want to take her. Also, can anyone recommend any pet shippers that have been used and how the dog went on on the flight etc, Any advice would be greatly appreciated , Many thanks Claire:biggrin:

    Moving to Ballarat

    Hi everyone! My family an I are moving to Oz in January and are really looking forward to it!! We have most things in hand, Dale of house container and flights booked!! The only thing we're having issues with is sending the dog(trying to get him there before the rabies jab comes into play) and the other is finding a property! We are hoping to buy but it seems we can't do that till we have been there for several months. Do you qualify as a first time buyer ? Even though you have owned a property in the uk? If anyone has any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!!

    Dogs Eat Owner

    I'm sorry but I see this as karma:yes: SEVEN dogs are believed to have eaten their owner after he left them starving without food for two weeks, The Jakarta Post said today. Andre Lumboga's mutilated body was found with his head cut from his body Monday inside his home at Greenland, Batam Center, in the Riau Islands, a province of Indonesia. Seven dogs belonging to Lumboga attacked their master apparently as a result of being famished, police chief Eriyana, who uses one name, said. "The victim was believed to have had nine dogs as pets. He went to Manado [North Sulawesi] during the Eid al Fitr holidays, leaving the dogs for 14 days without any food," the newspaper quoted him saying. Two of the dogs were eaten by the others, Eriyana said. The seven surviving dogs also lashed out at police when they tried to enter the house. "We had to paralyze them," Eriyana added.
