It is at this time of year that a lot of people are relocating families. Their most precious shipment is the household pet. When your furry friend boards a plane, you want to make sure they are in safe and competent hands. Move One Pet Transportation is an accredited member of the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA), one of the first service providers in the Central/Eastern European region to hold this status.
When shipping your pet to join you at your new destination you will want to make sure they are going to be as comfortable as possible. Move One Pet Transportation advises to let your pet get accustomed to the kennel before it travels, it usually takes two to five days to adjust to the kennel environment. To avoid air sickness make sure you give your pet a small meal no later than 12 hours before the flight. Avoid using sedatives or tranquilizers on your pet as they may lead to injuries during transport and lastly place a blanket, towel, or shredded paper at the bottom of the kennel for your pet’s comfort but do not include any chewable toys.

To pay or not to pay? That is the question.
This question keeps coming up so time to revisit it.
It is an inconvenient truth that no expat working in Dubai is immune to the risk of redundancy or job loss. Should these trials arise at the start of summer, when many expats depart on vacation and recruitment grinds to a near halt, an individual faces additional pressure.
