Moving a cavalier King Charles

Recommended Posts

Really concerned about moving our dog overseas, as he comes under snub nosed dogs, has anyone moved a cavalier?  I know there are factors like timing of flights, avoid certain times of year flying etc,


Thanks in advance.

Best thing is to use a good pet moving agency.  They should give you all the advice.   Dogs dying in transit is rare.  Snub-nosed dogs dying in transit is a bit less rare, but you've still got to be pretty unlucky for it to happen.  It's expensive though - more than your own air fares.

Speak to Bob at Pet Air. You need to do this sooner rather than later as it isn’t a quick thing to do. It takes some months

Hi Maria and Mike

Have a look here for more information. and be warned, it takes at least 7 months from start of the process to flight date - https://www.petairuk.com/destinations/taking-pets-to-australasia/australia/taking-dogs-to-australia/

In terms of your cavalier suffering problems on this journey - some airlines class them as snub nosed, but most dont. As Marisawright said, there are risk, but they are miniscule. As long as your boy is fit, healthy and lean, he has the same minimal risk as anyone.
