“Petraveller was by far the most well-documented and easy to follow.”
David’s Labrador Retriever, Matilda travelled from Melbourne to Christchurch with Petraveller. Here’s Matilda’s pet transport story.
Matilda, fondly called Tilly joined David and his family when she was just a pup. David recalls, “We came home when we lived in Adelaide and then moved with us to Melbourne in 2013.” Tilly is super friendly and loves to play with other dogs. David says, “She’s pretty clever and has a few tricks in her repertoire.”
Now at the age of seven, Tilly is starting to settle down. But otherwise, she is an energetic and cheerful dog. David says, “At home, she’s a bit of a slacker, snoozing and lounging all day long but she’ll jump into action as soon as someone mentions walk or park.” David adds, “She has a bit of separation anxiety and whines when we leave for work, but she settles down pretty quickly.”
After living in Australia for a while, the Troughts decided to relocate to New Zealand to be closer to David’s family. Initially, David was in two minds when it came to Tilly’s relocation. He says, “Tilly has lots of friends in Australia who have babysat her over the years. We considered leaving her with a couple of families here in Melbourne, but we thought it wasn’t right for Tilly.” He adds, “We know she will love the non-city lifestyle in New Zealand as she moves into her golden years.”
David reached out to Petraveller to fly his pet from Melbourne to Christchurch. He says, “We did a fair bit of shopping and comparison. Petraveller was by far the most well-documented and easy to follow. After looking into the company a bit more, we liked what they were doing, and the team was sincere.”
Tilly is now happily exploring her new home in New Zealand. Thank you, David, for trusting us with adorable Tilly. We enjoyed flying her to her new home.
