Default This Little terror may stop us from Emmigrating

New rules to most of the International Airlines that fly into Oz, have now banned the transportation of Brachycephalics (small headed dogs to you and I) this includes unfortunately our Family pet.

We are currently looking at flying into New Zealand for 12 weeks, this also negates quarantine of the dog in Oz, and then entering Australia BUT we are not sure how long NZ Airlines are going to continue taking Brachy's, anyone any ideas?

Many regards

Some of the dogs 'can or may' have trouble in breathing, certain dogs are predisposed to this especially British Bull Dogs, mine however doesn't suffer in this way (she does snore a lot though )

You would honestly not emmigrate if you couldn't take your dog?

I've got a Staff, my fiance said she won't go if the dog can't, he's only a pup but the vet says he'll be big, so the bigger the better??

We have two staffies, flew out with BA on 30th October and were fine...

IIRC at the time, it's thought that there can be a problem with short nosed dogs; however I think I remember reading somewhere that Japan Airlines will take them though...

HTH

OMG !!!

We have a 'British' (English) Bulldog and are in the process of trying to sell the house at the minute. All quotes from pet-shipping companies so far have said that ONLY JAPANESE AIRLINES will ship an English Bullie to OZ.

HAS THIS CHANGES OR IS IT STILL THE CASE - AS YOU SAY - THAT JAPAN AIRLINES ARE STILL OK TO SHIP (that's not me shouting by the way.....just kind of asking for some confirmation from someone in the know !!).

I know that Golden Arrow couldn't ship our 'Betty' because they only use BA...but other than that we haven't approached a shipper for some time 'cause we're waiting to sell the house first. When we did start looking though, all the quotes we got did stipulate that they'd be using Japan Airlines.

If this is due to become some sort of aviation legislation then I'd appreciate knowing where the formal 'party-line' is on this one if anyone can help.

So shitted-off after reading this string !

Why don't you call one of the pet shippers and see what they say...? You could try the one we used... Pinehawk Kennels

Good on yer Rodders.......

I'll contact the shippers who have given us a 'positive' quote next week.

You appreciate the stress though I'm sure.............family, kids, friends, house, job, DOG !

We're not the first to stress - and won't be the last - but it'd be nice to be able to take the family dog with us...............even though we won't be able to get rental accommodation (but that's another string I think..............).

Take care.

Depends where you're going for rentals I think... We had no problem here in Sydney with our 2 staffies... We looked at 15 properties or so, several of which we were told pets would not be a problem... We only applied for one when we'd seen exactly what we wanted and we got it immediately... We offered 3 months rent in advance which seemed to count a lot... Cousin here says no one does that so it went gone down well... None of the agencies that we talked to were in the slightest bit interested in any credit/rent/employment history from the UK at all... However YMMV... They were very keen on our NSW driving licence and passports... One of the first things to do here is get your Aussie licence; there's times when it seems you need it to sneeze...!

Good to hear.....we're off to Sydney too. The wife is Aussie so regaining the licence shouldn't be a problem.............

If worst comes to worse we'll have to leave Betty with the outlaws for a while - and then sneak her back in!!!!

Cheers
