Firstly I feel we should introduce ourselves properly. There's the three of us Matt, Ollie and Me (Jules), then there's the dogs, Dandy (4) and Louis (5).
Ollie is the main reason we want to live in Australia. We want our little boy to enjoy the outdoors lifestyle and we want to spend more time with him. Hopefully he can surf, cycle, play footie etc all much more enjoyable without the rain and we hope to have a better work/life balance! So fingers crossed we'll be making the move next year. We're in the early stages of application, just waiting for our Vet Assess to come back.
We're looking for some advice and hoping some of you can share your experiences of transferring your pet dogs?
We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, both very spoilt (they were our babies until Oliver arrived!) We can't bare the thought of leaving them behind but equally we don't know how well they will cope with the flight and the quarantine period. They're very gentle little dogs and can be fussy eaters. They walk/run in the park everyday and spend the evenings on our laps as stress busters!
Have any of you taken Cavvies? If they do cope with the move, how long does it take them to get over the separation anxiety? How was quarantine for your dog, does it help to visit? Will they then adjust to the heat? Will we find a rental? If you can help answer any of these questions we would love to hear from you.
This is the first of many posts I'm sure, so many questions! We look forward to reading your replies
