Hi, anyone knows how easy it is to find a dog-friendly apartment in Sydney or Melbourne? We're bringing our 6lb (2.75kg) baby with us. Pa-share po ng experience nyo... Thanks.

    Mahirap....btw, are you aware that dogs moving to Aus requires 6 months quarantine in an accredited country like Singapore and one or two months quarantine in Aus bago irelease sayo. That was the rule last year, check mo ulit. In the previous forum, I was discourage by all kababayan due to the sky rocketing cost involved.

    My dear mahihirapan ka and magastos. Yes, aside sa flight fare, you need to buy a crate, dapat vaccinated sya, may recommendation ng vet na di matrauma or ok lang sa plane, iquarantine aso mo.

    About where to get an apartment kaunti lang natanggap. Usually sa mga real estate website nakasulat naman. Kung ikaw mag enquire may tick box naman. Units malamang hindi, houses malamang pwede.

    We love dogs and cats here but yung custom dito mahigpit sa mga animals lalo na makitang depressed aso Hindi palalabasin and you will pay for all the cost. :(

    Sorry darling, it breaks my heart to discourage you unless you are willing to spend then bring your doggy along.

    Just want to share some of our experiences in importing our tiny dog (6 lbs).

    The step-by-step procedure can be found at www.daff.gov.au/aqis/cat-dogs. It looks daunting at first. Kelangan lang basahin ng paulit ulit at gawan ng checklist/timeline para mas madaling sundan.

    6 months and required quarantine period after rabies vaccination. At least one month dapat nasa AUS quarantine facility (AQIS). In our case, 5 months outside AUS living a normal life and then 30 days sa kulungan ng AQIS Eastern Creek outside Sydney.

    Masyadong pihikan sa pagkain ang dog namin kaya nahirapan sya. She lost almost 30% of her body weight. Sa tingin namin, di masyadong tinutukan ng head caretaker ang aso. Siguro dahil aso na ang kaharap nya palagi. Buti na lang may mga batang assistant caretakers sya na kahit papano binigyan ng special attention ang dog namin. Dapat sana, different levels of observation and care yung ginagawa ng AQIS kasi iba iba naman ang needs ng mga aso.

    Regular visiting times sa AQIS Eastern Creek: Tue and Thu from 1:30-3:30 pm.
    Special visits can be arranged -- total of 1 hour per week (on top of the regular visiting hours). So pwedeng dalwang 30mins on Mon, Wed, or Fri.
    Note: AQIS can be flexible on special visits kapag di maganda ang condition ng dog/cat. In our case, since nagstart mag-lose ng weight, pinayagan ako bumisita ng 30mins on Mon, Wed and Fri. Since kakarating ko lang nman sa Sydney early this month at naghahanap pa lang ng work, ok lang na mabisita ko sya as frequent as everyday. Pero sobrang layo nang facility. Nagko-commute lang ako kaya inaabot ako ng 6 hours from leaving the apartment in the morning until coming home late afternoon. Tapos medyo malayo pa ang lalakarin from bus stop. May segment ng side walk na hindi sementado kaya medyo maputik pag umuulan.

    Grooming and exercise sessions can be arranged in place of special visits mentioned above.

    AQIS provides dry food. Kasama yun sa boarding fee na binabayaran ($39 per day!). Since wet food and kinakain ng aso nmain, nagdadala ako ng supply. Kelangan din magdala ng treats para pantawid gutom. This was especially crucial in our case. Sabi ng caretaker, minsan pag ayaw kumain ng aso binibigyan nya na lang ng chicken tender treats para lang may makain.

    Sobrang haba ng 30 days para hintayin makalabas ang baby namin. On top of that, concerned din kami sa condition nya kasi di masyadong kumakain. Tapos malamig at maulan-ulan pa kaya siguradong di kumportable ang maliit na dog. Buti at nakasurvive naman.

    ...Going back to the original topic, medyo nahirapan nga kami nkahanap ng apartment na pwede ang dog. Kahit walang nakasulat na "pets not allowed" sa ad, kelangan pa rin iconfirm sa agents. In some cases, di alam ng agents kaya tinatanong pa rin nila sa property mgmt. In almost all cases, hindi allowed ang dogs sa apartment buildings in Sydney.

    kaso syempre kung na-attach na ang dog sayo ng sobra sobra, gusto mo na ding dalhin sana...though mas practical to buy another one when you get to Au nalang...sana next time maging mas madali and cheaper nalang and LESS COMPLICATED ang pagdadala ng pets... :((

    @misteraussie Did you eventually end up getting a rental apartment/flat or a house? Super strict ba yung landlord mo? We're going to bring our dog from Singapore to Sydney after I settle in. Naka-contact na kami ng pet mover so medyo naka-schedule na yung pagaayos ng papers for export/import, but the part that I'm dreading the most is trying to find a place that will allow pets.

    Oo nakahanap nman kami ng rental unit na allowed ang dogs. Mahirap nga lang makakita. Tingin ka sa domain.com.au or sa realestate.com.au.

    Di nman strict yung property mgr. Since then kumuha uli kami ng isa pang aso :)

    @misteraussie ah okay. Did you have any references mentioning your dog? Balak ko kasi kumuha ng reference from my current landlord and maybe from the condo manager. Sana di ako mahirapan maghanap.

    Wala namang ni-require sa amin. Pero bring as much documents about your dog as you can. Iba-iba nman kasi ang strata policies ng rental properties.

    Just a quick update: di ako nahirapan masyado maghanap ng dog-friendly place. Medyo sinwerte lang. My dog is in quarantine right now and by this time next week kasama na namin siya rito sa apartment. I can't wait!

    I have heard that in Vacation Rentals in Orlando one can take their pet to. We have a small cocker spaniel and she travels pretty much everywhere with us. We would like to know if this is possible and if there are any risks.
