    It'd depend on the crate size. I'd call the airlines you would want to use and get quotes for the dog in his crate.

    Hi Nicky & Andy,

     

    Our dog just arrived in June (German Shephard) and my sister inlaws dog we didnt book flights until less than a week before they were due out of Quarantine, we booked with a company and they wanted $1000 for both then we found someone cheaper so we cancelled the original company(sorry I cant remember the name of the company) $600 for both dogs!! good luck with your search.

    Your dog's ticket cost will be worked out on freight rates (they weigh them as you drop them at the freight terminal and you won't know exactly until then how much it will be) and it will depend on the weight of the dog plus the weight of the crate. If you use the wooden crate he came over in, it could work out a lot dearer than buying a light weight crate from a pet shop (which you may possibly use again at some stage) and using that. It depends really how big a dog you have and how much of the weight will be 'dog' and how much 'crate'! I left my cat's wooden crate at Spotswood and used a lighter plastic one. You also need to allow plenty of time to check in at the airport as the freight area is separate from the main terminal.
