It was time for Hugo Boss to return to Australia and I chose Sevenoaks Animal Logistics as my shipping agent. Hilary is wonderful to work with, always there for me during the whole intricate process and helped so much by keeping me on track with all the dates for each procedure, blood tests and vaccination protocols.
My experience was excellent. Thank You
Thank you Corinna for entrusting us with the shipment of your new Quarter Horse mare.
Solara arrived safely in Luxembourg after her long flight from Calgary.
Thank you Hilary for taking such good care of Aero and his travel arrangements.

We were excited to help this lovely family getting their new Gt. Pryenees puppy Adele from Geraldine in Okotoks to Patrick and his family in Montreal and this beautiful picture speaks for itself when you see how happy Adele is in her new home with her new family. Kids and dogs seem to have such great connections and love.
Sevenoaks recently had the pleasure of working with Afnaan and his family to transport, Spike, to the US from Calgary by ground transport as the weather was too cold to transport her by air..
‘My family had to relocate to the US for my work, while the opportunity was exciting there was so much to plan including bringing Spike with us. Les and Hilary took a huge burden off our shoulders by helping us relocate our Cockatiel. Birds are sensitive animals we had no experience with moving an animal across a border. The piece of mind and level of service provided was exceptional. We highly recommend Seven Oaks for your pets move, we had so many other things to worry about and having this big piece sorted out made a BIG difference, we can’t thank you enough for the smooth and easy transition!!’
Thanks again, can’t thank you enough for the help!
After talking about lending my friend in New Zealand one of my male Lakeland Terriers for a year, considering the requirements for shipping to a rabies free country, and looking at my schedule, I decided that I needed help. I phoned an acquaintance that imports and exports dogs and asked who she would recommend to help me. She recommended Hilary Oakes of Sevenoaks Animal Logistics. I have been very pleased with the assistance and hand holding when required to get my boy safely to New Zealand. I must admit that I was a little flippant at first about the timing and importance of all the blood work, shots etc., thinking that it can’t be that sticky considering we don’t have most of these diseases in Alberta. In fact if I had not followed the schedule Hilary provided to a tee, my dog would not have been admitted to New Zealand. Hilary prepared a schedule with everything itemized and timed and gave me reminders as each date approached. Her guidance helped us to ship my dog without any problems and for that I am truly grateful. In a year’s time we will go through this all again to bring him home. I highly recommend Hilary’s expertise.

A Top Winning Canadian Show Dog travelled from Calgary to Los Angeles to his new owner.
Thank You, we couldn’t have done it without you!!
This little girl even got to share the bed with me on her drive to Alberta from Manitoba. Now that she is with her new owners I am sure she will continue to get treated like a princess.
Luna is doing great here in Australia!
We have taken her down for multiple swims at the beach and long walks which she loves, I'll send through a photo soon.
Thank you again for all your help with the travel for Luna.
Jedd was lost in Alberta, found and returned safely to his owner in the United States!
Thank you so much Les for what you did for Jedd!! You are absolutely terrific… I am so grateful that we have people like you that look after this service. Les, thank you soooo much for walking my buddy Jedd, you are great!! The first place I saw on the internet to help me out was yours and you are great… thanks for helping people like myself out.. and if you are ever in Sundre, please call me you have a place in my heart that I will let everyone know!!
We just had to post this awesome picture of Lulu, the little Yorkshire Terrier with the heart of a lion and the sweetest Princess in the world. Yippee...... Quarantine is over and Lulu is now comfy in her owners arms and looking forward to her new life in sunny and warm Australia.
We helped Tommy travel to many of his dog show competitions in Canada and the US.
He is seen in the picture winning a Best in show with his handler Milton Lopez.
Please say Hi to Amato which in Italian means Beloved! Karen and I gave him that name because he was far from being loved and far from being lovely. He snarled and bit at anyone near him. MSCA National Maremma Rescue Network was contacted telling them there was a Maremma cross in dire need of rescue. Now I want to point out that Morinville, Alberta Canada is past Edmonton … but that has never stopped Karen O Brien Maynard & Randy Maynard the Heroes of this story! They got in contact with one of the best and most qualified transports who transports animals all over the world. Les Oaks is one of sweetest kindest people that you ever want to trust any animal with. Well I digress ….. Les kept us updated every step of the way. Ami arrived here on a very cold Minnesota day at the end of a catch pole. It took a lot of prayers and trust on both sides to get him to where he is now. As I was working with Ami through his problems I kept thinking that we all need a chance at a second chance sometime and boy the Good Lord sure gave me mine ! Amato "OUR BELOVED" was only a promise of being that one day …. but now he is one of the Best LGDs on Our Farm !
These lab puppies were getting special attention at the border on entry into Canada for their new owners.
We would love to welcome to Canada our new four legged Canadian Citizen Sr. Borges who arrived in Edmonton this morning after his long trip from the UK. Welcome to Canada Sr.Borges and thank you Natalia and Gustavo for letting us help you with the Canadian portion of Sr. Borges travel.
We were very worried about bringing Sr Borges, our English Bulldog, from the UK to Edmonton. Thanks to Sevenoaks Animal Logistics he’s well and happy with us in Edmonton! Great assistance, helped with clearing any complications and always extremely polite. If you need someone to relocate your pet, they are the right people to do it.
Meet Rambo and Rogue who after their long trip to Dublin are now safe and sound in their new home. They look super comfy taking up the biggest part of the sofa and very relaxed after their long trip. Thank you so much Erynn and Oli for trusting us to move your special friends from Edmonton to Dublin
After her long journey from Edmonton, Coco our pretty Labrador mix arrived safely in Bahrain on Wednesday and is now very content with Trevor her Dad until her Mom arrives in a couple of weeks.
Louie is a very pretty African Grey Parrot that we helped move from Bahrain to Canada for his owner David Wynne.
Welcome to Canada Louie!
Cooper had a bit of an extended stay at Sevenoaks due to the hot weather but has now arrived and is super happy to be back with his family. We sure loved him and so do they. The beautiful flowers that Cooper sent as a Thank you have definitely brightened Hilary's desk. Thanks Cooper and all the best in Aberdeen.
FRANKIE AND GUS SAY GOODBYE TO CANADA AND HELLO TO THEIR NEW HOME IN THE UK.
THANK YOU EMMA AND SHAUN FOR TRUSTING US WITH YOUR AMAZING BOYS.
We are super happy to have been able to help this big sweetheart on a leg of his journey to his new home in Chicago.
On a really nice sunny Spring (dare I say the word "Spring") I collected this pretty girl Celeste from Okotoks and took her to Air Canada so that she could fly to her new home in the States. She certainly felt the "Spring" in the air and was full of fun and excitement to go on her journey.
Bye Celeste, enjoy your new home!
Jensen had a great trip from Calgary to England and is happy to be with his new owners, Brian and Jayne. Here is a comment from Jayne. ' thank you both for helping to get Jensen to us and he is settling down very well, also we would recommend your company to anyone who wants to ship a puppy from Canada.
Orla had a great flight last night from Calgary to London and now she can enjoy life with her owner back in the UK, all the best Orla and thank you for choosing Sevenoaks Animal Logistics as your travel agent
Two very happy feline customers - Molly and Tommen made it to their new home in Saskatoon and have settled in beautifully. We couldn’t have done it without Sevenoaks and Hilary was the friendliest, nicest cat ambassador/mama/wrangler we could have asked for! Thanks so much!
Thank you so very much Hilary Oakes from Sevenoaks Animal Logistics. You did not only a professional job arranging Layla's trip and her customs clearance but you cared and treated beyond professional just like trusted family or friends. You made the long exhausting trip much better for our little Afghan hound girl Layla and saw to it that we got updates at any time, as well as you soothed our nerves greatly with explaining all procedures so well to us and resolving any problems fast , as we didn't have much time to plan the whole trip.. I would highly recommend Sevenoaks to anyone that is transporting their pets and i am so very glad that i chose you. Signed Claudia Duncan
Hobnob stayed with use until he could travel to the UK to be reunited with his owners.
Owen and Jen were happy to be reunited with Reilly. Due to a heat embargo Reilly could not travel cargo from Calgary to Houston therefore Reilly was escorted by Les and flew in the cabin. For those difficult relocations Sevenoaks goes above and beyond to look after your pet. Good luck Reilly in your new home in Houston
Steve is an Abyssinian Cat who stayed at Beinnein Kennels for several months before he could be reunited with his owner in Australia.
Toby our fabulous friendly English Bulldog travelled with his owners to London Gatwick.
Thank You Hilary for all your help with Toby.
Sevenoaks Animal Logistics has had a busy week, one of the highlights of the week was when we shipped Merla Thompson's Borzoi puppy to his new home in the US. "Sailor" received priority treatment when we checked him in at the Calgary Airport for his flight to his new owner. He is pictured here with Jai who allowed him to sit on a chair and wait while the Transport Canada Security Guard screened his travel kennel.
This is why I love my job. How cute is this picture of Angel the lab puppy that we shipped from Calgary to her new owner Jayne in the UK. It was love at first sight for both of them.
Guess who arrived from the UK today on the same Air Transat flight, two returning buddies....... Fluke, a very cute and loving Cocker Spaniel who we previously sent to Manchester about two years ago when his owners moved to the UK and Alyssa Gaudet who moved to the UK to work as a school teacher with her dog Cassie in September of last year. As Alyssa is only here in Calgary for a holiday, Cassie had to stay home and house sit.
Musette arrived from Brussels via Amsterdam on November 18, 2015 to her new home in Okotoks. Welcome to Canada Musette!!
Victoria, (Tori) came to Canada from Germany early in April of this year to her new home with Doug Fisher and to become a show dog in Canada handled by Michelle Gaudet. Here are pictures of her Victoria "then" and Tori now!!!
Here are some pictures of Bootz a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog that we shipped from Edmonton to Munich, where she joined a family who already owned other Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dogs. It looks to me like she had no problems fitting in with this Catahoula family
Thanks to Hilary and Les, we were able to unite our Smooth Fox Terrier puppy, Walker, with an incredible home in New York. There were a couple bumps in the road that they were on top of swiftly to iron out. He arrived last night to a very very excited owner and without these great people, it never would have happened. Highly recommend Sevenoaks Animal Logistics, and I will absolutely use these services in the future should the need arise again!
Moving from Edmonton to Ireland with our dog Rider, and after hitting a few brick walls we came across Hillary at Sevenoaks, so glad we did, she made the process seamless and everything went so smoothly, highly recommend it!
Hilary helped us move our dog Momo from Calgary to London Gatwick. Hilary was extremely helpful with the move. We had a few hiccups along the way and everytime Hilary made sure everything was sorted and set straight before I even had time to stress too much about it. Moving to another country is stressful enough and then to add the extra work with moving a pet seemed impossible. I am SO glad I chose Seven Oaks to help us with the process. Thank you again Hilary and Les for taking such good care of us.
