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

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"!

Alice is the epitome of an animal lover

Oreo riding backseat in the Canine Car :)

Thank you Alice for providing the best service! More than I expected. I had the utmost confidence in your knowledge when picking up Oreo from JFK. Not only that I enjoyed every bit of conversation with you amongst the bad traffic and appreciate your patience with Oreos arrival!

I 110% recommend Alice to anyone who needs their pet transported. She was on time picking me up, if not a little earlier than proposed too. She knew where to pick up my dog who flew from Australia to JFK, she knew where to take me for customs processing and pick up of Oreo. Everything ran smoothly :)  I think what is most important was that Alice is the epitome of an animal lover, it shows through her personality and care she had for Oreo.

Thanks Alice for following up on Oreo, she is settling in well and loves Central Park.

JFK Pick Up with short notice



It almost sounds redundant given all the other reviews, but Alice really is the best. We had a new pup being picked up from JFK and with relatively short notice she was able to take us, block out the time given the back traffic on a Friday night and get us all home safe and sound. She also has a ton of great city dog owner info! She has a life long customer in me.

Flexible, accommodating, a great driver and loves animals

I highly recommend Canine Car to all pet owners. Since my family lives in Manhattan and I live in California, I make frequent trips to visit, and arrive at JFK at all hours of the day and night. Alice is always there to pick my dog and me up, 24/7, whether it’s at 5:00 a.m. or 11:30 p.m. She is always on time and very pleasant, even though I’m half asleep and not quite as pleasant. Alice is flexible, accommodating, a great driver and loves animals. That’s an unbeatable combination!

Two Dogs and a Cat at JFK

Great, accommodating, personable service!
I was coming from Ecuador with two German Shepherd dogs and a cat, meeting Alice and her Canine Car at JFK in Queens. My flight landed late, but Alice waited 45 minutes for me to arrive, and she found a way to fit the dog crates and the cat crate comfortably. She was courteous, and very open and friendly during transit, and kept up with my Palm pilot directions on the fly in Manhattan. I highly recommend this service to anyone needing to transport animals of any size with comfort and safety.

Two Dogs and a parrot: Canine Car animal sitting and pet taxi

I hired canine car to dog sit for my bernese mountain dog,my jack russell and my parrot. They came to my house in NJ every night to feed and walk and spent the night with them – fed and walked them in the AM and returned again in the evening. They house and animal sat for 5 days and even provided drop off and pick up from the airport. They did a wonderful job and I came home to happy, healthy pets. I highly recommend Canine Car.
