Every pet finds transport stressful – and birds are no exception. Choose Dogtainers as your bird transport service and trust us to take full care of your feathered friend, minimising stress for your bird.
Dogtainers has been transporting Australian and imported birds for more than 40 years. Quite simply, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to ship your bird safely.
(To avoid disappointment, we advise you to thoroughly research permits required to send birds interstate. Each state varies in their approach to what they will and won’t accept.)
Transporting Feathered Friends
Prior to shipping birds there are simple, easy measures that you can take to help things go smoothly: make sure they have eaten and drunk enough food for example, helping them to feel in tiptop shape during relocation.
We recommend that birds arrive at their departure point as close to their travel time as possible, to prevent stress. Short or long-term boarding can be arranged: just ask.
Please provide full details of your bird’s daily routine and normal level of interaction before boarding, so that this routine can be followed as far as possible. This will help your bird stay happy and relaxed during boarding and transit.
Sending a hand-reared pet or a rare, exotic bird? For peace of mind, be sure to choose the right bird transport service with the right level of experience. Book online or call 1300 13 52 52 to speak to a Dogtainers Pet Transport consulting now.
