Thank you Dogtainers. I was so nervous about moving our gorgeous pets from Melbourne to Dubai, however, I can honestly say it has been one of the smoothest parts of our relocation. From calming my nerves when they arrived to collect my pets, sorting out a problem we had with our documentation efficiently, and sending an update on our precious pets before boarding, Dogtainers were fantastic. We know exactly who we will be using when we return Juddy and Georgie to Melbourne or on our next big adventure. Thank you, Belinda and Brent

A big thanks to Andrea (Dogtainers Melbourne) & Dogtainers for taking such good care of Jasper & Lottie. From organising their 10 day kennel stay in Melbourne to their travel & safe arrival in Dublin.
They were happy & healthy when we collected them & have settled in nicely into their new life. Loving the Irish beach walks more than anything!

We were pleased with the service provided by Lewis from our initial inquiries to completion. Gretel our Bernese Mountain Dog and her Siamese sister cat had the best of care as they arrived in great condition considering it was a 3-day journey. There was a problem with the dog crate due to airline space issues between Perth and Sydney and Dogtainers provided a substitute crate at no additional cost for the onward journey. We would recommend Dogtainers as a very professional outfit.

We engaged Dogtainers to transport our two Bull Mastiffs from Perth to New Zealand. Lewis at Dogtainers was fantastic from the word go, arranging the logistics for travel, having the crates made, arranging the vet checks and paperwork as well as calming a stressed out Mum and Dad. Can’t recommend him enough. The NZ Dogtainers team, was awesome too with Hannah being with us when we picked up the boys and arranging their paperwork and clearances. The fact the boys were happy and not stressed was a huge relief to us and it’s thanks to Dogtainers. The boys loved their crates and were quite happy to stay in them during their trip to New Plymouth. They are now happily settled in their new home. Great work Lewis, team and Hannah.

Hi Angie,


We have had a wonderfully busy weekend getting Boomerang adjusted to his new life in the US. He is doing very well.  He follows his Aussie sister Ruby everywhere.  Our 12 year old dog is doing really well with him as well.  Boomer is so playful and incredibly adorable like you said.  From the back, his head looks like a teddy bear.  It’s so cute.  Our biggest challenge has been dealing with reversing his day and night schedule. At 2am, he is wide awake and ready to play..  🙂  Thank you Angie and a big thanks to Dogtainers for another transport to the US.  It was a year ago exactly when I mentioned to some friends in Australia that we wanted an Australian Kelpie.  I would have never thought that we would end up with two beautiful dogs from Australia.  Because of you, our family has grown, and we are now so excited that Boomerang has joined his Aussie sister Ruby Roo.  Together they will enjoy on many walks, hikes, adventures and chasing tennis balls.

We used Dogtainers to transport our beloved dog Zoe from Perth to Vancouver. My husband and I had already moved to Vancouver and were ready to have our pup flown over.
Our main contact was Lewis, from Dogtainers in Perth WA. As we were overseas, all correspondence was via email and phone. Lewis was professional, helpful and put our mind at ease knowing that Zoe would be in great hands! He organised with my sister (that is who Zoe was boarding with in WA) the crate drop off, and pick up time on the day of flight.

We have shipped 10 puppies, 1 dog and 1 kookaburra through Dogtainers and cannot recommend this company highly enough. We live on an isolated island and this is fraught with transport difficulties, however Darren and Sarah are just amazing people and constantly find solutions; they truly care about the animals and customers. They found a way to get our puppies off the island even when the commercial airlines were down, and organised the air shipping and road transport of an injured kookaburra to a wildlife hospital for us, at expense to themselves. They always go above and beyond any expectations and are the friendliest people you could ask to deal with. There are no words good enough.

Thank you to Dogtainers, especially Lewis in the Perth office, for getting our cat, Tiger, and our dog, Bobby, all the way from Perth to Spain. From our first contact with Dogtainers, until the day that our animals arrived home in Spain, we knew that Lewis was completely in control of the arrangements. He instilled a lot of confidence in us with his professional manner and his knowledge of the processes and procedures that we needed to go through but, even more important than that, was the kindness, compassion and understanding that he showed to us and our animals. Making arrangements to move our family from one side of the world to the other was fairly stressful at times but Lewis was a constant source of calm in amongst our chaos and we are extremely grateful to him for that. We are now settling into life in Southern Spain. Tiger is finally back in her home country after travelling around the world with us. She is spending her days sleeping and relaxing in the sunshine. Bobby is happily exploring his new neighbourhood and beaches. Kelpie Xs are very rare here so he is attracting a fair bit of attention from the locals and is charming them all with beautiful Aussie character. So thank you to Lewis and the rest of the team at Dogtainers in Perth, you did an amazing job and we are all very grateful to you.

Kym, Ali, Tiger & Bobby.

I would highly recommend DogTainers and take this opportunity to say thank you for a very easy transition and all your help and support,as Lochie my boy is a rescue dog and is highly nervous and as i was very worried on how it would effect him on such a huge flight.I did not need to worry at all, Lewis was very professional and with a big heart and kept me up to date as we went along and made it so very easy.When the time comes in a few years time i would not hesitate in using Dogtainers again.

Pets arrived safely. Dog settled in in no time but seems a bit bored at night with no possums to chase! Cat took longer to settle but she’s getting there now. Can’t fault the service from Dogtainers. Bibi was fantastic. Recommened Dogtainers to anyone.

Dogtainers are fantastic! They are prompt in replies, thorough with details, and made the paperwork process very simple and easy, my cat was picked up from my Australian residence and delivered to my UK residence, she arrived safely and in great condition and settled right in without any issues. Very pleased with the level of service and attention to detail, I would gladly recommend Dogtainers to everyone.
