|I brought my dog from the United States to Australia. It cost me $10,000 plus dollars and took 8 months to organise it as Australia is a mostly disease free country (opposed to the USA which has everything under the sun). The quarantine in Australia is a minimum of 4 weeks and it is very hard on the dog. The dog stays in a kennel and is not allowed to be walked unless you pay for a dog walker additionally. You are only allowed to visit for 1 hour and visitation is only once a week. It is absolutely worth is if you intend to live here in Australia but not worth leaving Australia for a holiday in the USA and returning. I go back to the USA once a year for at least a month. I hire a dog sitter for the entire length of stay where my gorgeous dog is treated as their own dog.
So I know this thread is old but I hope this is of use to someone
