From: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
To: Sydney, Australia
Pet: Casper (Pekingese, male, 5 years old, 13kg)

Q. Hi PetRelocation,

We have moved to Australia and are eager to now bring our pet Pekingese here. How safe will it be for him to travel in cargo for the entire flight of around 9 hours? Which airlines can we use, as Malaysian Airlines do not take snub-nosed dogs? Also, he is aggressive to strangers and other dogs — will this be an issue?

We appreciate your kind assistance and thank you in advance.

Name: Cherie
From: Murrieta, CA
To: San Rafael, CA
Pet: Cali (cat, calico, 7 years old, probably 6 or 7 lbs.)

Q. Dear PetRelocation,

What would be the approximate price for a cat her size to travel from Murrieta, CA to San Rafael, CA? I am going to be out of town for about a month and my daughter is in college up there. I am moving when I get back and I don’t want her to be with strangers in a boarding kennel.

She’s very sweet and lovable. She has to be right next to me all the time. She loves my daughter, too, and I don’t think she’d do well being kenneled.

Pet: Mordecai: Pug/Shepherd mix (Approx. 37lbs, 3 1/2 years old)

Q. Dear PetRelocation,

My daughter and her dog left Canada two years ago for Edinburgh, Scotland to go to the university there. Mordecai went through all the requirements for him to travel to the UK from Canada.

They now are moving back to Canada in June and I would like to know what the dog needs to come back into Canada. My daughter has a Canadian and a British passport. He is healthy.
