Default Exporting dogs

Hi all,
I'm after a recommendation for someone to export my to dogs to Canada, was trying to deal with airpets but finding them a bit frustrating, From the quotes that weren't received to numerous phone calls and still no quotes or emails, finally found an older quote and paid but no reicept or when my dogs will fly. So after any recommendation to other carriers.
Hopefully I'm in the right area. Please delete if not.

You can fly the dogs yourself directly through the airline. I know air transit and air Canada do it. We have 3 dogs but the plane only had room for one to come on the flight with us but for that dog it only cost $270 we just had to get rabies jab, pet passport and fit to fly. We also had to buy a crate for him. For the other 2 dogs air Canada have a cargo company they use which was a lot more expensive but we didn’t have a choice although it wasn’t as expensive as the quotes from the main carrier companies.
Phone your airline and see if you can book them on your flight so much cheaper and wasn’t any more difficult
Good luck

We just took the dogs with us in crates with Air Canada but made the trip v stressful as they emailed the day before stating they wouldnt take one of our dogs - they thought she was a pug but is a cross so isnt short nosed.
We were quoted $240 per crate but only got charged £60 per dog at heathrow so was cheaper than we thought.
If I was doing it again I would pay the extra to use a firm as it was a huge pain getting the dogs to the airport looking after them then hearing them whining while we went through immigration
