1. Recommendations for the transport of animals and preparing them for travel.

1) choosing the transporter:
A properly selected transporter will ensure the comfort and safety of the pet. Too small transporter, in which the animal will not be able to stand, sit and turn, make his journey uncomfortable and tiring. Too big transporter (just like its lack) may pose a threat to the pet - during the trip, the animal could batter itself against its walls and hurt itself.
To properly choose a transporter for an animal we need 4 dimensions:
A–the length of the animal from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail;
B– the length of the animal's front leg - from the ground to the chest height;
C– width of the animal at the widest point;
D– the height of an animal standing freely, measured from the ground to the top of the head, or end of ears, if the animal has standing ears.
We kindly ask you to make a measurement and present it during the booking.

2) Planning a trip - It's best to plan your pet's journey as early as possible - in this way you will have time to properly prepare the animal and the required documentation.

3) Preparation of documents – Without the appropriate documents and required vaccinations, the animal will not be able to start the journey. Some countries require immunizations that must be carried out long before the animal's arrival. Our company helps in the preparation of relevant documents, so if any doubts arise, you can read the General rules for the movement of companion animals in the EU or contact us.

4) An animal prepared for transport must be healthy and fit for travel - an animal can not travel if it is sick or injured. Ultimately, the veterinarian decides whether an animal can travel.

5) Feeding before and during travel. It is best that the animal does not have a full stomach, give him a light meal about two hours before departure. In our transport Animal will have constant access to fresh water and in the case of a long trip, it will also be fed (Please remember to provide the staff with a small amount of food that the animal is normally fed with).

6) Additional amenities to minimize stress. You can stock an animal with your favorite toy or a small blanket - it is not necessary, because we provide the animals with appropriate bedding.

7) Ensuring the right amount of running.Before the journey the animal should be running out - a tired, saved animal will be better able to travel. Ensuring that the animal handles all physiological needs will enable the animal to withstand the next stop. Many animals have a problem getting settled on the trip because of stress, sometimes it must be a long time before the animal settles, so it is good to have the opportunity to do everything at home before the trip. We provide stops during transport every 4- 5 hours during transport, where animals are brought out and also fed.

8) Calming drugs. It is not recommended to give animals any sedatives - their effect is difficult to predict and may worsen the animal's situation.
9) Getting used to travel - especially for puppies and kittens is sometimes the first car trip in their life. This is the cause of additional stress, with someone strange and in somehing strange- like car; that's why it's so important for an animal to know what it is to drive and associate it that car is pleasant; when the animal has a chance to travel by car the owner or breeder knows if it has motion sickness; thanks to this you can prevent additional negative experiences while traveling
