Transporting pets in comfort and safety

Transporting Pets in Comfort and Safety

Hi! I'm Tim Dunton and I started UK Dog Transport in 2014 to help pet owners to move their dogs and cats safely around mainland UK.

I am fully licensed and insured with ample dog handling experience, as well as being fully dog first-aid trained.

My services are available 7 days a week, giving you complete flexibility. I am fully licensed and insured with ample dog handling experience, and dog first-aid trained. I ensure that your pets reach their destinations in comfort and safety – they have roomy, air-conditioned pods in the van and we take regular hydration and comfort stops.

UK Dog Transport still works closely with many pet rescue partners and Anne Lewis at the Lost Souls Sanctuary explains: "Lost Souls Sanctuary use Tim because he is consistently reliable, very reasonably priced and above all he is wonderful with the dogs he transports and they always arrive in a calm state. We take in some of the most difficult dogs, many of which have been very problematic during the journey to the UK. It is a testimonial to Tim's skills as a handler that he is able to calm them down."

Lizzie White from Last Hope Rescue continues: "Last Hope Rescue regularly use UK Dog Transport to carry our dogs and we have always found Tim to be reliable, efficient and friendly. Tim has, on more than one occasion, undertaken late night/early morning transport runs for us when needed in an emergency and no task has ever been too big or too small for him. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Tim for dog transports – a very reliable and safe pair of hands."

Pets to Vets (and back again)

It can be really stressful for both you and your pet when a visit to the vet is necessary – doubly so if that appointment is some distance away and you have no transport! That's where UK Dog Transport comes in, with my Vet Transport Run service. If your dog or cat needs taking to or from an appointment but you can't make it, UK Dog Transport can take your pet there and back for you – even if the vet is at the other end of the country!

I transported Delilah from Fernlea Vets in Bristol down to Taunton recently, when a big motorway snarl-up meant that her owner couldn't get there in time. This lovely lady is now safely home, and recovering well. Another popular service is one that I personally love; transporting rescues to their new homes and families, who are so excited to meet them. This is Wilson, a handsome Mastiff Cross boy from Last Hope Rescue, arriving at his new home in West Wales.

If you have a pet that needs transporting to or from a vet appointment or a new home, give me a call. I'm ready to help!

UK Dog Transport also escorts pets to and from overseas destinations, either via air, or road via Eurotunnel. It's best to ring for a quote, on 07581 004473 – I can also give advice on the paperwork that you will need.
