Hi, how much does it cost to bring ya dog to China?
Do we need to ask the International Airport about how to do that?And how do you bring ya dog back to Canada? I've been told by some companies that the price is expensive. And the dog needs to stay in HongKong for checking before going to China mainland.It takes 1 day or many days.The owner has to come with the dog fly to HongKong firstly.It's also not easy for the dog go back with the owner again.I do think the rules for bringing dog from Canada and NZ to China are the same.I want to bring it with us when we go to China for holiday.

Whether your pet is a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, there's a pet carrier to match. The majority of carriers are made of hard plastic with holes for ventilation. No part of the animal is allowed to protrude from the carrier. As a result, wire carriers are not permitted. Soft-sided carriers are permitted for animals in the cabin only. All carriers must be secure and leakproof.
International regulations state that the carrrier must be big enough to allow the animal to stand, turn around and lie down comfortably. If the pet carrier does not allow the animal to do this, Air Canada must refuse transport.
Preparation for travel
Since Air Canada assumes no responsibility for the care or feeding of pets while in transit, it is most important that you prepare both the cage and the animal ahead of time. Here’s what you should do:
Feed your pet four to six hours prior to departure, as a full stomach may cause discomfort during travel.
Give your pet water right up to the time of travel. Be sure to empty the dish at Check-In otherwise spillage during the flight will give your pet a wet and uncomfortable ride. Leave the dish in the kennel so that our Agents can provide water in the event of an extended wait before, between or after the flight.
Tranquilizers and other medications are not generally recommended. Consult your veterinarian.
Cover the bottom of the kennel with absorbent material such as a blanket.
Do not lock the kennel door as Air Canada personnel may need to access your pet in the event of an emergency.
Many countries place restrictions on the entry of animals. Air Canada does not keep all this information on file. Please contact the nearest embassy or consulate of the destination country for information.
It is imperative that you comply with all restrictions, and are in possession of all documents required by the destination country. Failure to do so can lead to refused entry, lengthy quarantines or even the destruction of the animal on arrival.
For animals entering Canada, contact the Animal Health Division of Agriculture, Canada.
