“Leaving Skadi behind was never an option
Anika partnered with Petraveller to relocate her cute Alaskan Malamute Skadi from Melbourne to Auckland. She talks about her pet’s beautiful personality and tells us why she chose Petraveller for Skadi’s international pet travel to Auckland.
Anika and her beloved pet Skadi have shared a special bond ever since Skadi was just a tiny eight-week-old puppy. Over the years, they have travelled together on planes multiple times, shuttling back and forth between Melbourne and Perth. Skadi, now seven years old, has mellowed out compared to her younger days. Anika says, “Skadi likes to play rough and is very independent. She gets on well with most other dogs and is okay with cats.”
Anika describes Skadi as talkative, particularly when she hears sirens. “Skadi is not fond of her toenails being clipped or vets poking at her hips and will growl if unhappy. However, she is very food motivated, and chicken fixes all!” says Anika.
Skadi’s personality is marked by her multiple escapades, as Anika fondly shares, “Skadi was an escape artist in her day. She wouldn’t jump fences but just push them over or dig under them. She even broke a window once to get inside the house.”
Anika was relocating to Auckland with her furry companion. Leaving Skadi behind was unthinkable for Anika. She exclaims, “No, leaving Skadi behind was never an option. I would smuggle Skadi in my handbag if I had to.”
Anika realised she needed professional assistance to ensure a smooth and stress-free pet relocation experience for Skadi. She contacted various companies for quotes but found that Petraveller stood out among the rest. She says, “Petraveller included everything, and the pricing was largely similar to those all-inclusive options.” Anika didn’t want to deal with the complexities of arranging veterinary visits and customs requirements on her own, and Petraveller’s expertise provided her with the peace of mind she sought.
With Petraveller’s support, Skadi successfully reached her destination in Auckland and is all ready to explore her new home now. Thank you, Anika, for choosing Petraveller to relocate beloved Skadi. Here’s wishing you good luck on the move and lots of exciting new adventures with darling Skadi.
