Tips For Traveling With Pets

By Air:

Ø    Make reservations or arrangements in advance. Follow airline instructions.

Ø    Obtain a shipping container a week or two in advance. Familiarize your pet by placing him in it, gradually increasing the length of time until they seem at ease.

Ø    Carefully schedule boarding and shipping arrangements so that your pet is well cared for until you are able to receive it at your new home.

Ø    Feed your pet no less than six hours before flight time. Give your pet water no less than two hours before flight time.

Ø    If pet accompanies you allow extra time at airport. If shipping pet, allow two hours gap for arrival.

Ø    Be certain your information in accurate i.e. address, contact name and number if something were to happen.

By Car:

Ø    If your pet is not used to traveling by car, try to make short trips. This will accustom your pet to the motion and teach it how to behave.

Ø    Dogs should be taught to lay quietly down. Your pet should never endanger the lives of you or your passengers.

Ø    Some cats may never feel comfortable; some may find their own spot in the car. You must decide whether or not your pet should remain in the carrier or not.

Ø    If you must stop overnight, make sure your animal is not restricted to lodging with you.

Ø    Be sure your pet is properly tagged and that you hold all the required documentation for up-to-date shots.

Ø    Take with you a Pet Travel Kit: food and water dishes, a can opener (?), treats, a favorite toy, blanket, and comb or brush.

Ø    Consider taking a scooper, some plastic bags, and paper towels in case there are any unfortunate accidents…

Ø    Check with your doctor about sedatives, sometimes they are necessary. Ask about alternative methods if your pet is not prescribed.

What is a DDT?

DDT sounds like you’re being charged double for drive time but that’s a mistake! The California Public Utilities Commission requires all moving companies to charge DDT on hourly rated moves. DDT means you are charged for the time between the old house (origin) and the new house and the moving company is responsible for the drive time between the warehouse and the origin. DDT actually SAVES you money!
