What Are the Benefits of Private Pet Transport?

Sometimes, your pet may need specialized care or individualized attention during travel. This is normal and common, even for pets that do not have special needs or who easily get along well with other animals. Most pets will require private attention during transport and travel at least once in their lifetime, and sometimes much more often. Private transport meets these needs while also providing your pet with that special white-glove treatment – for them, it’s like a vacation!

In this post, we will talk about some of the reasons to select private transport for your pet, as well as what to be aware of when arranging the details of your pet’s next trip.

Pet Transport for Families with Multiple Pets

If you have more than one pet at home, you probably have every daily routine including meals, exercise, playtime, and rest time down to a science. You’ve probably also socialized your pets’ relationship with each other to be supportive of their positive life experience. They provide comfort to each other, and usually one pet will exemplify expected skills and behaviors for the other. They are like siblings!

Pet transport allows your pets to maintain their productive relationship, which you likely worked so hard to facilitate, and keep all of their shared routines intact during pet transport. BCPT exclusively hires experienced handlers and trains them in advanced care strategies, including care of multiple pets who already live together. This allows us to provide a customized experience as part of the private pet transport service so your pets can take all the comforts of home on the road with each other. During the scheduling process, you’ll be able to share every detail of your pets’ routines for us to implement so that there is no interruption in your pets’ quality of daily life.

Pets with Disabilities or Other Special Needs

Private pet transport is perfect for animals with specialized care needs such as medication dosing, physical therapy exercise routines, or incontinence. Or, maybe your dog has a disability such as hip dysplasia and needs help with movements like getting in and out of a car. Private pet transport gives you the peace of mind that your pet’s personal needs will be cared for even when you’re not there. At BCPT, we never kennel pets during private transport, so you can rest assured they will be just as comfortable as they would be in their favorite lounge spot at home.

Pets Who Can’t Fly

Maybe you are relocating to a different state and planning to fly. You’ve arranged plane tickets for the whole family, a moving company for all of your furniture and belongings, and secured a place to live in your new neighborhood. But figuring out how to move your pet is still on your list, because of airline breed or weight restrictions, or simply because your pet hasn’t done well on a past flight. Private pet transport is the ideal solution to check this last thing off your list and make your relocation stress-free.

Other Benefits

Private transport allows you to plan according to your schedule needs. You don’t have to worry about arranging your travel or relocation itinerary to match the calendar of the next available group pet transport journey. When you are juggling all the details of a move across state lines, even just one less thing to think about can make all the difference. By giving your pet this special one-on-one experience, you’re also engaging in self care – a win-win for both you and your pet.
