Relocating Pets

Dogtainers specialise in reuniting families. Pet transport is how we do it. It doesn’t matter if your pet is a dog, cat, bird, or anything in between, we provide all animals with the same level of compassion and service. To guarantee your animals receive the highest quality care, we strictly follow all IATA Live Animal Regulations (LAR) and are proud IPATA and RSPCA members.

Whether you’re transporting your pet domestically, internationally, or bringing them into Australia, our extensive professional network can handle all of your travel needs. We can schedule your flights, arrange a door-to-door service, and organise pet lodging - all based on you and your pet’s needs and preferences. We have a wide array of kennels and catteries in our network, as well as our own recently refurbished facilities for your pet to stay in before their next move.
