Has anyone flown from Australia to the UK with there Dog 6 months of the year?

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I live in Gippsland and have been in Australia for 17 years. I’m thinking of spending 6 months in each country. I want to take my 10 year old cocker spaniel each time. 
 

I was wondering if anyone has done this? 
 

thanks in advance !

It’s a pretty stressful experience for a dog and it would also be a very costly.

I’m not worried about the costs but I am concerned about the stress on my dog. I was asking if anyone had any experience of it not personal opinions of the rights and wrongs of it, with respect!

Indeed. It's not just the flight, it's the quarantine.

I'd suggest speaking to your vet.  It's not just a case of doing the trip a couple of times a year; it's for how much longer your dog could reasonably do that trip.  Once a cocker spaniel hits 12/13, they're getting into the golden age: I'm no vet, but I'd be querying how much more stressful dogs in later years would find the trip.
