Often a family may have to move before their pet’s waiting period has been met. 

We can offer boarding for clients who need to move prior to their pet’s ability to move, or for those who need housing secured for their family. Please inquire early as boarding space is limited.

If you do not already have airline approved international travel crates for your pets, we will help you to ensure you get the right crate.

For our larger dogs we offer custom wooden crates built to specifications for your dog’s comfort.

Several countries also have their own requirements in regard to the type of crates they will allow for import.
