Crate Training your Pets for Transport

AirCare Pets highly recommends collecting your pets travel cages prior to travel to get them comfortably settled in before their big trip.

For cats and dogs, it is good to put a blanket inside the cage that has a familiar smell on it. This blanket can travel with them, but please be aware bedding is almost always destroyed upon arrival during clearances following international travel.

Next step to getting your pets ready for transport is to feed them in the cage and make it a ‘happy place’.

Place your pet inside and only let them out for being quiet and settled and rewarding their good behaviour. It is best not to teach them that barking and pawing at the door provides escape from the cage, as this will not be the case while they are en route.

Pets need to be calm and comfortable in their cages while they are lodged at the airport for their flight to be accepted at that final stage. This is why it is highly recommended to collect your travel cages in advance!

You can see the crates we have available by clicking here.

It’s also great to measure your dog before calling us so we can decide on the best crate possible. You can see what measurements we need by clicking here or feel free to call and arrange a time to bring your dog into our office and we can choose the best fit in person!

Customer Experience

Louis to Paris

Dear Shelley

Louis landed as per schedule in Paris this morning and he was over the moon to see us.

He looked and behaved as per his usual + the extra excitement and relief that he was reunited with us. Actually, we had never seen him that happy for that long! It was delightful and a big relief for us too.

So MANY, MANY thanks for your care and help to get him ready, packed and shipped!

All the very best,

Isabelle and Paul

Louise in France
