So with the current political state of the US and my constant struggle to find employment, I'm legitimately thinking about moving out of the country if things go downhill in the next year or so. I know one member recently moved to the UK but it appears she's banned so my plan of asking her is out. I WAS hoping to move to the UK if I leave the country because I both have a number of friends there, and I don't speak any other languages.

Does anyone know what the process is like moving with a dog? I would only be taking Stella. I know all the sorts of crates and what not you need to bring for them to fly, but I mean the actual process. Is it hard? Is there a quarantine even if they have vaccination records? If there's a quarantine how long is it? Is the trip traumatic?

If anyone's had any actual experience with this that would be great. Thanks.

Tracie, please send me a PM if you'd like to contact her via FB. I can put you in touch with her. She hasn't made the move yet, but she's getting close. :cool:

It IS tempting to leave the U.S. The current political situation has given me nightmares. :(

I'm returning to the US in June after having lived in Asia for the last four years. While I was here I adopted my dog and I really want to take her back with me, so I've been looking into all the requirements, and it's overwhelming. Most people I speak to are all "it's sooo easy! You just need....." and I think there's something wrong with me because it's not easy for me, there's so much paper work, and the legalities of both countries plus the airlines.... I'm just so frustrated with it right now. After having added up all the payments and fees and such just to get her on the flight (not to mention quarantine and all that jazz), it looks like I won't be able to afford to take her back. :'(
Maybe it's different going from the US to the UK, but so far I'm on the verge of giving up and looking to rehome her, which I would rather not do. So many people fly and ship dogs overseas all the time, I didn't think it would be this difficult and expensive just for one dog. :/ Good luck, I hope you're able to find answers, sorry about my rant.
