    Maybe this could get stickied?

    I found a couple of helpful links and wanted to share them.

    Information on pet hotels, immigration, modes of travel and more!

    For shipping animals to Korea

    Just remeber that each country is different though and has their own quarantine laws, while some have a 30-60day in house quarantine, others may have a 3-6 mth quarantine in quarantine kennels. Also some airlines and countries requite animals to have specific shots before travel and some countries prohibit certain animals

    I was wondering if anyone could find a link to what breeds of dogs Korean Air bans shipment on. It was quite an extensive list including Rottweilers, Pit bulls, Dobermans etc. Someone I know is considering getting a German Sheppard puppy and we want to make sure they will ship the pet home when they go back to the US.

    Fort Campbell but moving to Grafenwoehr Germany Nov 9th 2010!

    Shipping a pet is crazy business!

    We are shipping our now 9 month old English Mastiff to Germany with us. She already weighs over 100 lbs, and will be bigger by the time we fly on November 8th. We had to buy a Giant 700 series crate for her for $150, and since she is too big to fly as baggage, we have to pay $1300 to ship her as cargo on a completely different airline (Delta) than the army booked us on (Lufthansa). Then once we get there it will be registration fees and $150 temperament test since she is on the DDO list in Germany. We also thought we had to pay an extra $300 to have her checked in since she is arriving 2 hours before us. But apparently it can take up to 90 minutes for the animals to be unloaded out of cargo, and then another 3-4 hours to clear them through the vet and custom at the airport, so there shouldn't be any charges! SHOULD BE FUN!

    There are so many different things that have to be done for a pet to be shipped. We started getting the ball rolling on shipment info for her before we even had orders.

    If anyone is moving to Germany and has any questions, please feel free to ask. There is a ton of information that the internet and sometimes the airlines don't share with you until it is too late.

    Good luck, and feel free to ask any questions!

    Pet info!

    Hey all! So i've been digging about how to ship my pets without costing an arm and a leg, and i found it!!! Virgin Atlantic ships pets, cargo, even unaccompanied for very decent prices! They measure the crate the animal is it and charge you that way. I have a Chow and two bigger cats and they quoted me $1200 for all 3, vs British airways who were quoting me $3500 for all 3. Btw this is a flight from Boston to London, hopefully someone else can get a good deal through them too!

    Does that quote include all the customs fees? Some airlines include them in their prices and some airlines do not. Last I knew, Virgin Atlantic did not include the customs fee in their price, but British Airways does.
