SHIPPING LARGE BREEDS


LARGE BREED PET SHIPPING

Many of our clients are large breeds such as the Great Dane, Great Pyrenees, Saint Bernard, Anatolian Shepherd, Bernese Mountain Dog and Leonberger to name a few. These breeds often require a custom crate due to their length and height. We offer these crates and build these custom size for each pet we relocate. We add large bowls for water since it’s extra important for these larger breed dogs to stay hydrated. Some airlines such as All Nippon require a metal crate for certain breeds such as German Shepherd and Great Dane. We recommend purchasing these crates from a vendor such as Impact Crates.

Measuring your pet with accuracy is very important in determining the proper crate size for your dog. You can view the measuring guidelines HERE. Accommodating these custom crates on some flights can be an issue so it’s important to check with you Pet Relocation Specialist to discuss the routing and options based on the crate size. Some breeds have airline and country restrictions
