What to Expect When Your Pet Travels to Canada

Pet Travel Consultants just like a travel agent, they will organise your flights to Canada in line with your travel arrangements as best as possible and include a special pet delivery service to your new home.  Our team will require all the important details of your pet including health conditions, microchip details, vaccination history and information to ensure your pet will be comfortable on their overseas adventure.  Our consultants are up to date with the latest Canadian quarantine rules and regulations and will provide you with advice and instructions in the lead up to your pets travel date

Pet Handlers can collect your pet from your house, transport them into our transit lounge for a stretch, toilet stop and a drink of water.  Once your pet has been cleared for flying, they will be safely transported to the airport and checked in for their flight Canada bound.  Depending on your itinerary, our Pet Handlers will provide a pet travel update prior to your pet being checked in on the aircraft when travelling through one of our Transit Lounges.

In-House Vets are available to provide the export veterinary work and quarantine requirements for entering Canada and ensure your pet is in the ideal condition before they embark on their long flight ahead.

How Our International Pet Transport Services Work?

Connecting Flights & The Luxury of a Comfort Stop for Your Pet

Depending on your flight carrier and itinerary, your pet may require connecting flights and/or a comfort stop. Comfort stops are designed to give your pet a short break whilst they are in transit on route to their final destination. At Jetpets, we have dedicated and trusted partners around the world that cater for your pets comfort stop on our behalf.  All of our overseas partners are equipped with boarding/accommodation facilities to house your pet on their short or long term comfort stop depending on your final destination.  For more information please chat with our Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant.

Trusted By The International Industry’s Best

Jetpets Melbourne has become the first pet transport company in the Asia Pacific Region to be awarded The Centre of Excellence for Live Animals Logistics (CEIV) Certification. “Jetpets customers can be confident that their precious animals are traveling in safe and healthy conditions” – Glyn Hughes, IATA Global Head of Cargo



What Happens At The Airport?


  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The pets’ cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more leg room than us!)
