Thankfully, many people have safely moved their dogs and cats to Australia, and there are plenty of resources and professional pet move specialists available to assist. If a move to Sydney lies ahead and you’d like to bring your furry family member along with you, here are a few tips to get you started.
Start Early and Research the Requirements
Pet owners moving to Sydney should start planning their relocation at least 6 to 12 months before they intend to relocate. Because it’s a complicated process, err on the side of caution by enlisting the help of an expert as soon as you know you’re moving in order to avoid any costly missteps.
Take Advantage of the Resources Available
For people who decide to handle all or part of the move themselves or want to get a head start on settling in, spend some time reading expat blogs (like this one!) and exploring social media like Twitter and Facebook to connect with people who have made this move before you and thus have great tips to share.
Preparing yourself to deal with the unexpected is easier said than done, but remember that pets pick up on your demeanour and will benefit if you’re able to remain as calm and organised as possible.
