Default Travelling with a dog from the UK

We are just about to put in our main visa application and are looking over costs again. Can anyone recommend reputable companies in the UK for shipping my dog over, best places to look for information and any advice from anyone that has any experience of doing this.
I’m aware most places require sizes etc to give you quotes but she’s a puppy so is still growing. It’s more looking for decent companies so I can get a rough idea by contacting them.

We shipped our dog in 2009 it cost 5k for the long quarantine and costs. The dog was about 4 years old and with hindsight it wasn't a good idea I wish I had re-homed him in the U.K. For many reasons.

I used Jason’s Pet Relocation and they were amazing. Especially since we wanted to break up the journey so actually imported my dog into Singapore first and then Australia a few days later.

Another vote for Pet Air. Bob is also a vet.

Did you ever get this resolved? I'm trying to get my Shih Tzu over and most places are saying they can't take them at the moment.

Hi,

No, I had stopped looking as we were waiting for word on our visas. We’ve just had this granted so I’ll be looking in to it again. Hopefully this has resolved as we hope to move this side of Christmas.

Have you had any luck since?

Ashley
