Not at all, we can cover this for you! If you need to use one of our crates, we can rent this to you for $20.00. If your pet prefers a pet belt, we also have these for hire at $5.00. Bedding is provided at no extra cost, although it is recommended to leave a piece of your pets’ personal blanket for familiarity. You are also welcome to bring any of your pets’ belongings, such as a bed, bowls, food etc. Please advise if you have anything bulky or heavy.
Let us take the worry out of transporting your pet
2. Is there water and food for my pet?
Provision of a constant supply of fresh, clean drinking water is provided and refilled when required. We can feed your pet upon request, please make sure your pet is not fed within 6 hours of travel, a peckish animal is much less stressed than a nauseous animal. You can pack a lunch for your pet, or we can provide one for free!
3. Does my pet get to stretch their legs outside of the care during the trip?
Each trip includes a break every 2 or so hours (or if your pet ever sounds distressed) to check on your pet, refill their water and take your pet to the toilet outside/stretch their legs (if they are able to exit the vehicle). Please note that puppies needing PARVOVIRUS, KENNEL COUGH, FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS vaccinations will be kept clean and dry while being allowed to stretch and have a cuddle inside the vehicle.

Yes, your pet is NEVER left alone or unattended unless our driver is re filling their petrol as well as paying for it. Our drivers’ are all very passionate animal lovers, and you can be assured that your pet is in very safe hands, remember they are family at Pet Oober, not freight! Our driver stops to check in on your animal at least every 2-3 hours, or if they sound distressed.
5. Who is my pet traveling with?
