    i'm worried to death now...but i don't want to leave them behind. the dog has never been away from me since he was a puppy, i'm saying almost like 24/7. so basically they are like my own kids.
    Dogs are stolen for various reasons in Australia too, including to be used as bait for fighting rings. The risk is probably higher in China, but certainly not insurmountable I wouldn't think. Just ensure you have adequate security and fencing. Don't let your dogs roam.

    I would say take him with you. However, as other shave stated, it will be harder bringing him back. I would ensure that you know the facts for both entering China with a dog and entering back into Australia with a dog before you make any final decisions.

    China is a wonderful country and has become very westernised in recent years. I think it is fabulous that you will be part of that change. Where in China will you be living?

    Look here;
    Bringing Cats and Dogs (and other pets) to Australia - DAFF

    This point here maybe particularly relevant to you. It means basicly that you have to spend 6 months in an approved country with your dog before coming into Australia.

    China (not including Hong Kong and Macau) is not an AQIS approved country. This means you can not import a cat or dog to Australia directly from China (not including Hong Kong and Macau).

    thanks for the info, Anne.

    I'm flying to Peking. I have been to Hongkong and Guangzhou 5 years ago. Well, to be perfectly honest, the experience was not pleasant, Hongkong is way better. My pocket was picked multiple times when i was in Guangzhou. So, to some extent, i'm with Hya, China is not a very good place to spend the rest of your life. The population is huge, i had to squeeze in a train every time i went to work.

    I've never been to Peking, so things may be different there, i'll remain neutral without prejudicing the city. As for pets, well, definitely Peking nowhere close in the competition with Oz, it's 'pets paradise' here in Australia.

    I'll call jetpets and dogtainer tomorrow, to see what are the options out there regarding transporting my kids.

    P.S. I wanna upload a few photos of my very lovely pets. But I don't know how to do it, any help?

    Anne

    So does that mean if jwjxz takes her pets to China she cannot bring them back at all or she has to go via Hong Kong.

    You would definitely want to know the answer to that one before you take them.

    I've read the policies. If i need to bring them back in Oz in the future, I need to get approved by an AIQS country that my pets are free of health conditions.

    China is not on the list but Hong Kong is. But in order to get it from Hong Kong, I have to spend a minimum of 6 months living in Hong Kong.

    What jwjxz said Hya. They need to go via an approved country and they have to spend up to 6 months in that country first. It means a looooong trip home.

    jwjxz - I was in Guangzhou last year and never experienced any pickpockets or theft of any kind. I also had over 200 teenagers with me, and you would think they would be prime targets when moving in a large group. Not one issue though. Maybe we frequented better areas??
