JUST A FEW QUICK NOTES
Bully breeds many times get a bad wrap. You simply need to have an understanding of the breed, be able to read their body language and communicate with them. We never discriminate against any breed, we simply follow the same “keep them separate and safe” protocol.
When moving a cat alone or as a group, it’s important to keep in mind that they need much more space than a dog their size. They need room to stretch out, eat, drink and keep all this away from the litter box. Cats that know each other generally prefer to be crated together for familiarity.
If your pups haven’t been vaccinated. Special care must be taken to properly sanitize the kennel, and no contact with other animals should be allowed. If your transporter doesn’t have the patience for hourly kennel cleanings, make sure they never let little ones out to potty at common dog potty areas.
If you own a bird you’re already familiar with the basics. Make sure you choose a transporter with the knowledge and experience to keep your bird calm, cool and covered while traveling. Temperatures in a vehicle can swing wildly when traveling cross country.
With a private transport we have never had a problem sticking to a pick up and delivery date, within a block of hours.
Although we have never had any significant delays (more than 12 hrs), group travel can pose scheduling obstacles.
We always strive to stick to a schedule, but there have been times when that was simply impossible. From traffic accidents stopping or slowing traffic, to unscheduled stops due to an in kennel accident that needs immediate attention. There are a thousand ways to get knocked off schedule in a group transport.
We do try to keep everyone informed as we go, and communicate a more exact time of arrival as we get closer to your drop off.
Should there be delays during a group transport, there will need to be someone available to accept delivery even at odd or inconvenient hours, or have a nearby boarding facility pre arranged.
This is so we can get other pets to their destination and won’t have to charge for re-routing to come back around for another drop-off time.
Just think of it as picking someone up from the airport or bus station. If there are delays, they still need to be picked up.
We can only take enough food for the trip and one or two small comfort items. Chew toy, small blanket and so on.
The weather does play a factor in how long the breaks actually last. We don’t want anyone out in extreme heat or cold longer than needed.
Many times, trying to swap out with other kennel designs can cause space and safety issues.
A private transport means your pet will be the only pet in the van, and we can guarantee a pick up day and time as well as a drop off day.
