Cross-country with our fur baby...Canine Car saved the day!

Max, my happy California dog-turned-city dog during his Canine Car ride!

I had the stressful chore of moving myself, my dog and my cat from California to New York. Planning a cross-country move is complicated enough, but add a couple fur babies and it's overwhelming!

Fortunately, I found out that there is such a thing as "pet taxis" in NYC and so I started researching. After reading all the reviews, I decided to call Canine Car. Initially, Alice was hesitant because I was traveling to Brooklyn from JFK during rush hour, but nonetheless she made the arrangements for my transport, and I'm so grateful she did!

The morning I arrived, Alice texted to let me know that she was at the airport, which alleviated my fears of a "no show" as I had read on other pet taxi company reviews. Alice drove me to the cargo building to pick up my animals, and helped disassemble the dog crate to fit in the car. I could tell instantly that Alice truly cares about the animals and making us all feel comfortable in our new surroundings. We chatted on the way to my destination, and Alice gave this new New Yorker some tips for living in the city. When we got to my stop, Alice waited in the car with the animals while I got my keys and took all my belongings up to the apartment. She was so patient and seemed concerned that all was well before leaving me on my own, which I really appreciated! 

Moving to new city alone was very daunting, and I knew that getting to my apartment with the animals would be challenging. Alice made getting from the airport to my new home easy and enjoyable. On leaving, she said I could call her for anything, which made me feel like I'd made my first friend in this big city. I will absolutely be using Canine Car for all my pet transportation needs, and I know Max will be excited to see his "Auntie Alice"!
