Animal transport service - Germany Switzerland

Hi there! We were supposed to pick up our puppy in Germany next week, but due to the existing Corona laws this is not possible for private persons according to information from the customs administration. We were advised to make use of a professional animal transport service. Does anyone have experience with animal transports? The puppy should be transported from Germany to Switzerland. Thank you very much for hints!

Ace Pet Moving is a Swiss animal transport company with a good reputation.

That said, how old is the puppy now?

Commercial travel can be traumatic for a young puppy, even when in the hands of a respected professional. Would it be possible to wait for a few more weeks, so that the puppy remains with mum and siblings in a familiar environment, gaining self confidence and socialisation* skills? Every additional week of maturity at this point could help make the journey easier.

Where is the pup, how long of a journey would it be?




*This of course assumes that the breeder has a good early socialisation program in place.

I would recommend that you wait a bit. It is uncertain when the border will reopen but surely you would want to pick the puppy up yourself? It would certainly be easier from a paperwork point of view, and probably better for the puppy. How far away is the breeder?
