I think it'd be worth a call to the Blue Cross over here Mandy, just to ask who there supplier was or is, because almost everything in Perth has to be ordered from over east, so you can almost guarantee that you can buy them where you are.

Hi, I've just spoken with the animal carriers that exported our animals from the U.K. to Canada (Airpets), and I have been advised that yes the regulations of wood containers has indeed changed. Apparently it was changed 6 months ago, and the wood now has to be from a renewable source. It also apparently has a 'special stamp' programmed all the way through the container. Further advised it would be not practical to arrange shipping ourselves (our dogs are large). So it seems wooden carriers for large animals are still good, if they are made from this 'special' wood, that only exporters can arrange. It was suggested that I liase with a shipping agent in Canada. Nicely stitched up!
Bloody hell it's going to cost me a fortune. Got 9 of the beasts, plus the other critters
Oh well, a dog is for life and all of that!
Regards.

I dont know where you can get them from though? If I happen to find out, I will let you know.

The pet transport company we used made Archies crate from wood, and hes goin back home in it in june.

why is it not practical to do it yourself because the dog is big? whether they are big or small its the same process>? and likewise you will need a bigger crate, but using a company , you would still need a bigger crate! however i CAN see how having 9 dogs to send back would be more of hassle

Sounds like your getting shipper version about do-it-yourself.

I used to make tailor made timber containers for a a foundary that exported components all over the world. Timber suppliers can easily supply the timber products that meet the specs and supply you with certification docs from the timber mill.

I had quotes of around AU$800 for a cage for a large dog. If I had 9 dogs I would definitely be making my own. Material cost would be less than AU$150 and about 3hrs per cage.

In your case you could expect to save several thousand dolleros

Be careful - there's a max size and you have to build to a certain dimension spec, has to have enclosed tray to prevent spillage of dog waste, door has to operate a certain way, no sticky out bits, safe carry handles for cargo staff, size dimensioned so dog can lay down and also turn around.

The carriers have all this info.

Hi, Quick posting, hopefully more info later.
I contacted B.A. cargo here in Toronto (I'm in Canada), and the person I spoke with was very helpful. She advised me to contact Defra, which I have done. Defra appeared not to have a problem with the containers I used 4 years ago, so is contacting the shipper I spoke with, and will contact me back. From what I ascertained from the conversation with the lady at Defra, is that so long as the containers comply with the stipulated regulations, (which are all outlined at the IATA web site), then she can't see a problem. She did state the containers have to be of solid wood. Also the IATA guidelines clearly state that "specially constructed containers of hardwood, metal, plywood or similar material with two secure door fasteners on each side are acceptable". So hopefully can still use our old boxes, as well as build some new ones.
I'll post more, when I know more.
Regards.
