JAXON Labrador to Brisbane. QLD, Australia
Kia Ora Lisa, to give a short context, we were anxious about having to send our dog overseas without us for several reasons: we hadn’t done this before, we weren’t sure of costs, we were unsure if any particular service would have the best interests of our dog at the forefront, it seemed to be a long process to organise, and we felt nervous given that our dog was heading to Australia before us (to stay with family on a temporary basis). It is in this context that we researched various pet flight services in New Zealand and decided upon venturepet because of our location and the location of the service. From our first enquiry we found Bruce and Lisa to be reassuringly professional. We found the price was very reasonable and we found that information given to us was very comprehensive and transparent. As first time users of this service I felt at ease that the process would be seemless and complication-free. This was affirmed as Venturepet kept in constant contact with myself, my wife, and our family that was picking our dog up in Australia. From the first enquiry through to the dogs transit to Australia, they kept us in the loop as to where Jaxon was (i.e. hourly/two hourly emails to advise us), what we had to do, as well as answering any questions that any of us had. We would like to highly recommend this service to anyone that needs to transport their animal overseas (or in New Zealand) and feel confident that first time users of this service will feel reassured in this (sometimes) daunting process.

And though Penny and Pablo looked pretty shaken when they arrived at Qantas Cargo, they seem to have bounced back incredibly quickly — just like you said they would! So, again, thanks for everything. You were amazing to deal with!

ROTA border collie cross to Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Hello Bruce, Many thanks to you and the VenturePet team for reuniting our beloved pup with us. We were so worried about him flying, but it was obvious when we saw him safe and sound, that he had been in very good hands. He was quite scared and anxious when I took him out of the crate (as we expected) but has adjusted very well and now has a new Husky friend to keep him company.

ROXY & MINNI poodle crosses to Perth, WA, Australia
Hello Bruce, Lisa and Margaret, Sorry it has taken so long to email you but we are living in a small place called Abbey, Busselton about 2hrs south of Perth and the internet, phone and tv will quite often not work which is very annoying. Anyway I want to thank you all very much for all your hard work in getting both Minnie and Roxy to Perth. I felt very sorry for Margaret having been left with a barking dog!! Sorry Margaret – a huge thank you to you. They were both so excited to see us and very hungry. We had a bit of turbulence but nothing to major but at least they had the company of a couple of other dogs as well. I definitely could not have done that myself but you made it seem quite easy in the end. So thank you all again it was very much appreciated.

HORACE german shepherd & MADGE cat to Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Hi Bruce. A belated but sincere thanks for your efforts in bringing my pets to Melbourne last month.
You made the whole process effortless and painless. With the plane delay I was, as you know, worried that they might have been stuck on board for the delay but you sorted that. They are settling into their new micro home; missing there two acres of garden and birds for dinner (Madge) but I am doing lots of dog walking and warm poo picking up.!!!! The heat is a challenge though but getting used to it. Me, too!!
The Parks are very dog friendly with disposal bags available in most and bins. Horace is a bit of a novelty as most dogs are half – rather, a tenth of his size. Thanks again, team, feel free to use this as a reference.

CLINT fox terrier cross to Perth, WA, Australia
Happy New Year Bruce and Josh, Thanks very much for the assistance with Clint and he arrived safe & sound in Perth, very happy to see Damian. It wasnt until he got home that he went to the toilet for quite a length of time I was told.
You’ll be amused to know that the new female dog next door loves Clint and has jumped over the fence 5 times already to see him but our dog Lucky doesnt seem too fussed at all with the new addition to the household. Clint is a lovely reminder of the dog we once had (miniature foxy) who we lost to old age just over a year ago. Thank you for providing the cage as I only noticed the crack when you showed me at Venture Pets. Hope all is well in Wellington and would have no problems recommending you to anyone ….. thanks once again.

MINNIE maltese dog to Perth, WA, Australia
Dear Lisa and Bruce, THANK YOU!!
I am so pleased that we found Venture Pet to transport Minnie (our wee Maltese) from Auckland to Perth. There was so much to do with our relocation process but your professional, reassuring and seamless service was faultless!! I would recommend you to anyone wanting to relocate their beloved pets. Margaret was an absolute superstar at the drop off point in Auckland even though I was in floods of tears she made me feel 100% confident everything was going to be ok. And it was. Minnie was waiting to be collected 1.5 hours after the flight landed in Perth just as you said and she was just fine. In fact she loves it here in Fremantle and has settled right in not at all showing any signs of upset from the journey. Thank you All.
Blanche and Minnie

GIMBAL cat to Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Just to let you know that after a quiet flight across to Melbourne, Gimbal has arrived safe and sound. We landed about 20 minutes early, and went straight to the Qantas freight terminal and only had to wait about 15 minutes there before being sent to collect her at the warehouse. She was understandably a bit scared but not overly stressed. It seemed to be all older men there and they made a fuss of her. Once in the car she celebrated with a gigantic pee! Now she just has to get used to the great big birds (crows and cockatoos) that sit on the handrail and watch her through the glass!
Thanks for everything,
Cathy Wright and Gimbal

OPAL & PABLO rainbow lorikeets to Sydney, NSW, Australia
Thank you for all the help and support you provided in getting Pablo and Opal to Australia. Bruce was at your office to take charge of my feathered friends at a very unreasonable hour for him. The Birdies were fresh and frisky at the Sydney end and the process was smooth and efficient with more helpful people and my sister who welcomed me with flowers.
They have settled happily into their new bird-house, room and country and even conducted a noisy and animated conversation with ‘the local bird population’ through my Mum’s meshed window last week.
Many thanks again and best wishes

ROWDY, ISABELLA & RASCAL jack russell & cats to Sydney, NSW, Australia
Hi Bruce & Lisa,
Just to let you know, the pets arrived fit and well and were successfully picked up. Thanks for looking after them so well, they are settling in quite nicely. One minor matter, when we went to collect them, in order to enter the Qantas freight terminal each person in our vehicle needed to provide I.D. As we had our 3 kids (they wanted to help get their pets) and they had no I.D. with them, they were forced to wait on the road outside the terminal until we had completed the pickup. You might want to advise others in future of this requirement.
January 27, 2011
COOPER & SPUD labrador & fox terrrier cross to Melbourne , VIC, Australia
I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for your help in getting Cooper and Spud over to Melbourne.
Both arrived safely and very excited to see us at the other end. They have both settled over here amazingly well.
You really were a lifesaver when you managed to get Spud on the same flight as Cooper especially at such short notice. Venturepet has been mentioned to many of our friends who ask how we got the dogs over and I would not hesitate to encourage people to use your services.
Once again, thank you so much.

TRUFFLE, TWINKELS & FUDGE pug & cats to Darwin, NT, Australia
A HUGE thank you again for getting our three babies to Darwin safe and sound.
Truffle is doing very well in Darwin. She travelled really well and is acclimatising well to the heat, and it is HOT. It’s 35–36 degrees every day now with humidity up to high 80s. The cats got off their flight like they had done nothing more than a quick trip down the road to the vet. Truffle was a little more excited about seeking her parents again and according to the handler who signed her over to us, there is never any doubt which dog belongs to which group of people, they let you know, loudly!!!
The cats seem pretty happy to spend most of the day sleeping on the cool tiles or on the bed in the direct flow of the aircon. We have decided that they will be inside cats for the three years while we are here. It is just too dangerous to let them out. We have croc infested mangroves right outside our back fence and we hear there is a pack of dingos nearby as well.
We have also found a nice vet, Truffle had her Leptosperosis Australis vaccine which she has had to have to protect her from the local strain that we don’t have in NZ. They are also on a very strict heartworm prevention programme because that is a huge problem over here. The vet says there is nothing to worry about though, as long as they get their monthly worming treatment they can’t get it. We’ve also upped the tick and flea control to monthly (rather than every 6 weeks) and so far no creepy crawlies.
On weekends we take Truffle to a beach just outside of town which is dog safe (less danger of crocs or jelly fish) and that is where all the local doggies hand out.
All the best
September 23, 2010
PADDY cat to Adelaide, SA, Australia

HOLLY & SISTER cats to Sydney, NSW, Australia
Dear Bruce & Lisa,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for looking after Holly and Sister.
Although the hop across the pond was nothing compared to their previous travels from the UK to Wellington,
Mark was waiting anxiously for their arrival in Sydney. Needless to say, Holly and Sister arrived in fine

BLAKE cat to Perth, WA, Australia
Dear Bruce & Lisa,
Thanks so much for getting everything together for me and liaising with Kate at Allvet – I have Blake all safe and sound. Great work. Had used you over the 8 years I was at Allvet or should I say recommended, and had cats and dogs as clients that had used you and always heard great things, But to actually be a client and feel the anxiety of whether they will be Ok flying and not being in the county to organise everything, is something else. So thanks again guys. Especially on your quick efficient service.

At this stage she is more interested in tentatively exploring the new surroundings.
Bruce – Many Thanks to VenturePet for your professional for all your service and arranging everything.

They arrived safely and happy. On asking Ross if they recognised him, he said “does being licked to death count as been recognised?” so I guess that is a yes, which is just fantastic after all this time apart.
The latest text from Ross this afternoon was “hmm back to sharing food!”
Once again many many thanks from both Ross, myself, Ralph and Ronnie. Robyn Knewstubb-Brown

SHERRY & RAIDER huntaway cross to Brisbane, QLD, Australia
Hi Bruce and Lisa,
Raider and Sherry arrived safely and have been very busy exploring every inch of their new yard. They were both so excited to see us again their tails almost went through the wall of the cage. It was so easy to pick them up from our end so you must have done all the hard work your end — big thanks for that!
I think they must have been jetlagged when they arrived because they were so quiet in the car on the way home, but are now making up for it.
I think they must still be on N.Z time though because at 4am Friday morning they were up even before the birds and promptly went in to give the kids a wake up kiss, so here’s hoping that their body clock adjusts quickly or they may just end up sleeping outside with the possums, snakes and spiders! (ha ha ha). But seriously though apart from the early morning wake up calls it has been great to have the dogs back with the family, so thank you once again for making it a smooth journey to get the family reunited again.
I will certainly recommend you to anyone.
All the best and thanks once again

Collections Development Coordinator
Dear CHIMP SUPPORT TEAM,
Thanks very much for all your help in allowing us access to film the Chimps journey to Adelaide.
We all arrived safely and from what I have seen – they are both settling in well at their new home.
As you can all understand, it takes a lot of organisation to make a film and it always helps to have a good support team.
Please pass on my thanks to all in your team that have contributed.

DIESEL leonberger dog to Townsville, Australia
Thanks so much for this! Diesel arrived happy and well – he’s already adjusting to the heat if the amount of fur he’s shedding is anything to go by!
He’s been out on the boat too so is trying lots of new adventures. Thanks for all your help with getting him safely over here.

BUDDY border collie to Melbourne, Australia
Thanks so much for the feedback – what a wonderful, dog-friendly service you have provided. I am so pleased he had an extra walk and exercise before boarding his flight and it’s lovely to hear he is happily on his way ‘home’. Ryan is on his way to Melbourne as I type to pick him up.
Thanks again for keeping us informed.

DENVER & DHARMA maltese cross poodle to Sydney, Australia
I just wanted to thank you for taking the initiative to sort out the
transport arrangements for Denver and Dharma. I have become familiar
with Kiwi’s sorting stuff out like no one else over the past three years.
I am sure I will miss this on my return to Aussie or at best have much higher
service expectations than when I left.
We are now in good shape thanks to the excellent local support we have
received from Venture Pets. We personally delivered all
the necessary papers to Venture Pets so the paper work could be processed
in time for Denver and Dharma can travel on the same flights as Anne and I.

BABY cat to Perth, Australia
I just wanted to let you know that my cat arrived safely in Perth last night. The long trip obviously didn’t affect her at all. To my relief she didn’t even show any signs of shyness or stress either. So, once again, thank you very much for the excellent service you provided to get her across the “ditch”. That’s indeed appreciated!

XENA yorkshire terrier to Melbourne, Australia
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your assistance with getting our Xena from New Zealand to Australia. We collected her from the Qantas freight depot last night, cost was only $33, and she was in perfect health. We were so pleased to get your email with all the correct information after having had the two phone calls from Qantas with incorrect information. Once again thanks very much for getting our precious Xena to us safe and sound.

KATIE & BELLE cats to Perth, Australia
Both Katie and Belle arrived safetly and they looked healthy. They both had water containers and it was great to see them both. They were very well looked after on the flights, only because all the arrangements were done so well in Wgtn. They have both been exploring the house and found space in kids bedrooms to sleep in.
Thanks again and you are right, it feels we are a complete family now.
I will definetly recommend your services to family and friends.
Love to the family.
Shabina and family.

NISMO staffy cross to Perth, Australia
Hi Bruce and Lisa,
Just want to express our thanks to you and your team for your outstanding and professional service.
Nismo is now safely arrived and we had no problems what so ever picking him up from Perth. He is loving being back with his Mum and Dad, so now just needs to get used the heat over here!
Also would like to thank you for contacting me to advise he was fine in Auckland, it eased my worries for the rest of my trip.
We would definately recommend Venture Pet to anyone transporting pets.

FLOYD labrador to Brisbane, Australia
Just wanted to say thanks for all your efforts with Floyd. He arrived safe and sound in Brisbane last night. My son bought him a pigs ear for a treat and he was more interested in that than anything else so I guess his stress levels weren’t too high!
I have recommended you guys to our local vet and a couple of other people who I know are shipping pets soon.
Cheers and thanks again

INDI, JACK & TEAGAN dogs to Hervey Bay, QLD, Australia
Hi Lisa & Bruce, thank you so much for your help and support transporting our dogs.
As you know this event for us was quite nerve racking, and without any experience doing this before we we’re completely at the mercy of Venture Pet. All of our questions and concerns we’re settled and our inexperience was of no problem at all, we cant recommend you’re company to other worrying “parents” enough.
We we’re really pleased with your agents in Aussie as well, the dogs obviously had no troubles as Teagan jumped back in the van while the last was being let out : ), also as far as the dogs we’re concerned i’m sure they had no idea what just happened, no signs of stress or confusion or anything of the likes at all.
Of course if the future called for us to transport our dogs, Venture Pet will be the only one on the list.
Thank you very much again, if we can add to your web site recommending your services, please just ask.
