Pet Sizing

Our prices vary based on the weight and size of your pets, we have a number of pet cage sizes built into each of our Vehicles and floats. It is important that we allocate an appropriate sized cage for your pet for its comfort during the trip.

We allocate spaces based on the breed and age of your pet. Following are the general guidelines we use for pricing along with more specific information based on the breed standards. We will not always need to know the exact weight or height of your pet, i.e. we will automatically charge a labrador as a medium dog, Jack Russells as a small dog and a Rhodesian Ridgeback as a large dog. However if your pet is unusually large or small for its breed you should let us know the specifics at the time of booking to ensure it has enough space for comfort and that you are charged appropriately.

We do reserve the right to refuse to collect any dog that appears to have been intentionally booked incorrectly or to require additional payment if the dog is significantly larger than was indicated.

Our standard size classifications are as follows:

  1. Small Puppies and Cats
    Generally a small or medium breed puppy, up to 12 weeks old at the time of travel and under 5kgs in weight.
  2. Large Puppies
    Generally a medium or large breed puppy,  5kgs and over, under 25cm in shoulder height, under 12 weeks old at the time of travel.
  3. Petite dogs
    Dogs up to 5kg and under 25cm at the shoulder.
  4. Small dogs
