Transport from Australia to U.S.

Hi Everyone,

I've decided to move back to the United States and bring Levi (my dog) with me. I've gotten quotes from various pet transport companies and I am wondering if anyone here has ever made that journey and if you had any recommendations concerning your experiences with pet transport companies. Also, I have gotten conflicting advice and recommendations on getting Levi vaccinated for rabies. Some say it is better to do it once you are in the States (because it is a live vaccine) and it is not required for entry into the U.S. from Australia because Oz is rabies-free, other people seem to think that it is a requirement for entry? Is anyone familiar with these laws?

I dont have any advise for you on transport, but think its wonderful that you are bringing Levi back to the States with you. I would do the same thing.
I hope someone jumps on to give you some great ideas.

I wish I could be of some help too, but I haven't been on an airplane myself to begin with! LOL. Umm you know about the vaccine, it really depends on the area you are going to I suppose, if rabies in an issue then you will probably need to get it there to get some sort of certificate, but I'm not completely sure.

snowpea...glad to hear you are coming back to the states
I would go online and contact some of hte airlines and see what their prices are for flying your pup. as for the shots need to enter the US..i'd try calling US customs or go onto their site and see what info you can find out.

i'll see if i can get some info from friends on Yahoo that live in Aussie country that come show int he US and see what they have to say and get back to ya with any info i get.
