“Peta is intelligent and loyal.”
Melissa and her beautiful Blue Heeler Peta travelled from Sydney to Vancouver, Canada with Petraveller. Melissa talks about the pet travel experience.
Peta was a rescue dog that Melissa found online and adopted from Brightside Animal Rescue in Tasmania. Initially very nervous, Peta soon developed a deep bond of trust and affection with the Staples family.
Melissa recollects, “She was very nervous when we first got her and terrified of men. I found out that her previous owner had kept her on a chain for her whole life of four years. She was subsequently rescued and taken away by the Council. It took her a good 12 months to feel safe with my husband. She is still a bit nervous around new men, but she is an absolutely loyal and loving dog to our family.”
Peta is very intelligent and loyal and loves being cuddled. The Staples family began crate training her in anticipation of her journey, and she immediately loved her new crate. Melissa says, “Once we put the crate together and put her blanket in it, she went straight in. I think it feels safe for her, and she likes to have her own space once she has had enough people time.”
Melissa and her family were moving to Vancouver to be closer to their Canadian family and decided to take Peta along. Melissa contacted Petraveller to help with the pet travel from Australia to Canada. She was worried about how Peta will fare during the long flight to Canada. Melissa says, “I liked the level of customer contact and care at Petraveller. The phone calls to explain the process and the quick, helpful and thoughtful replies were brilliant. I was impressed with the caring staff member who met us for Peta’s handover at the airport and the regular updates that they sent to reassure us.”
Peta made the trip to Canada very comfortably and is now happily exploring her new home. Melissa is delighted with the relocation experience. She says, “Peta looked happy and comfortable in Vancouver after her really long flight. We will definitely choose Petraveller again!”
Thank you, Melissa, for choosing Petraveller to fly your adorable doggy. Here’s to new adventures in Canada!
