Happy Tails Travel was such a huge peace of mind for me during this pretty stressful move. Kaya arrived in Glasgow with no problems, and was so happy to be reunited with us.
They answered dozens of questions to ease my anxious mind and made this process so much easier on me. I can't thank you enough! Circe is settling in well in our new home thanks to Happy Tails Travel, Inc.
They handled everything and guided me every step of the way. It was a very seamless and stress-free process. I was especially concerned because she's years-old and was traveling from Chicago to Seattle, but Happy Tails got her to me safely. My family and I were moving to LA and so we needed to fly our labradoodle, Emma. We were moving from Miami and with all the temperature restrictions for flying pets in hot temperatures, we knew that it would be tricky. The folks at Happy Tails were great!
Moving with pets can always be tricky. Whether it's a furry friend or any other kind, pets can be a handful during a move. Here's our guide for success!. Moving can be tough. Throw a couple pets in there and it gets even tougher. Our animal companions—be they furry, feathery, or scaly—need to be carefully.
They booked Emma on a flight and kept us updated on the temperatures. At the last minute, the temperature soared past 85 degrees and the airport folks wouldn't let Emma on the flight. There were no other flights out in the next 24 hours and my family and I were scheduled on our own flights early the next morning. We were freaking out!
Kim, at Happy Trails organized for Emma to be picked up in Miami and driven to Orlando, where she found a flight leaving very early in the morning for LA.
She saved us a ton of aggravation! Our return was a breeze and we settled back into our home life quickly. Pamela was a huge help and made our departure and return so pleasant - thank you again for recommending her to us! The whole process with Happy Tails Travel was so easy on my end and made our travels stress-free.
Both times I picked up Moose from the flights he was safe and sound with his tail wagging. It means the world. Thank you so much for everything you did to help us, we are so appreciative. We will not hesitate to use you guys again for any future travels! Planning a pet move can be an overwhelming and time consuming task.

Of course, Pets Welcome is your one source for pet-friendly lodgings throughout the United States and Canada. If camping, find out whether pets are permitted in the public or private campgrounds at which you expect to stop. For either a dog or cat, a cat carrier or portable dog crate is one of the most useful items you can have on an overnight or multi-day road trip. Cat harnesses are available at many pet shops. Unless your dog or cat is already conditioned to car travel, start taking it on short trips to accustom it to car motion and teach it travel manners.
A dog should be taught to sit or lie quietly in its own place, to keep its head inside the car, not to annoy the driver or passengers, or bark at passing vehicles. A safety harness, kind of like a seatbelt for your dog is also a great idea. Most cats are frightened of car travel, but usually become accustomed to it quickly.
Some persons allow the cat to find its own niche in the car as long as it does not interfere with driver or passengers; others feel that the cat is better off in its own special carrier.

Summary of Health Requirements 1. Cats: Official Health Certificate required, as is certification that a cat has not been exposed to rabies and has been vaccinated against rabies. If you bring a pet with you from another EU country there is no need to report it to the customs services, according to the Finnish Customs Authority. The more often you can walk the better your dog will know where home is.
A stake with a long leash attached will be useful in keeping your pet restricted outdoors—an especially good idea for campers, as most campgrounds do not permit pets to run free. For convenience, pack a travel kit for your pet.

Do not feed or water the pet just before starting. Feed it only once a day, preferably by evening. Try to keep to established walking and feeding routines. A few treats will do for snacks during the day. Plan stops at regular intervals to give your pet a drink and a short run.
Wayside rest areas make good stopping places. Take a container of fresh water along; a too sudden change in drinking water may cause a temporary upset in some dogs. Never let your dog or cat loose in a strange place. Exercise it on leash. Always attach the leash before opening the car door and detach it after the pet is back inside and the door closed. Take care when stopping at filling stations and restaurants.
Do not give an excited pet a chance to bolt and become lost it may be gone forever in spite of identification tags. If you must leave pet in the car on a warm day, park in the shade, open all the windows an inch or two for cross ventilation, leave water, and check on pet every hour or so.
If the day is hot, it is best not to leave pet in the car at all. Heat can quickly become excessive in a parked car even if it is in the shade, and animals can suffer from heat prostration.
