“Petraveller was prompt with the service and very reassuring.”
Pet parent Helen booked Petraveller for the relocation of her handsome Golden Retriever, Winston, from Melbourne to Auckland. She talks about her pet and shares her pet travel experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Helen grew up with a beautiful Golden Retriever and had promised herself that she would have her own when the time was right. After moving to Melbourne from New Zealand, Helen’s husband finally agreed that it was an excellent time to bring a Golden Retriever into their lives. She says, “Having found a lovely breeder, we waited six months for our puppy. We welcomed Winston into our family three years ago and have had so many adventures and fun with him ever since. Living in a beach town, Winston grew up swimming and playing in the water.”
Winston loves nothing more than jumping waves and chasing sticks out deep. Helen speaks fondly of Winston, “When it hits 10 am, he will let you know that it’s time for his morning beach run! We call Winston our teddy bear; he adores hugs and cuddling on the couch and will show love to anyone that loves him.”
The Anderson family were relocating to Auckland, New Zealand to be closer to family and friends during the pandemic. “Our family has recently grown a little bigger with the addition of a baby boy. Winston loves his baby brother and shows him his love with full face licks! Not taking Winston was never an option, he’s 100% our first baby,” says Helen.
Helen reached out to Petraveller to help with her pet’s relocation from Melbourne to Auckland. She says, “We requested a quote online and received a prompt response from Petraveller. Despite the current uncertain situation because of the pandemic, we appreciated that Petraveller could offer a freighter service and provide more certainty that Winston would make it back on our timeline. They were great at keeping in contact and talking us through the details and reassuring us that our fur baby would be taken care of with top-notch service.”
We are happy to say that Winston had a stress-free flight from Melbourne to Auckland, and is enjoying himself at his new home. Thank you, Helen, for trusting Petraveller with your gorgeous fur baby. We wish the Anderson family good luck and lots of adventures with Winston out there in Auckland.
