Pet Carriers began, to give the pets and owners a better experience.
Soile Gendle has been in the dog industry all her life, starting from her mother's passion of breeding and showing dogs. When Soile bought her first Irish wolfhound she was hooked. She soon began attending dog shows and her breeding program started. Whist having built her career in the IT industry she knew that the animals was her true passion. The idea began when she exported one of her dogs to Finland, she wasn't happy that her dog was treated like a parcel shipment and not a person's pet. She knew there was a better way;
Pet Carriers International Pty Ltd started in 1994 to provide a specialised service for pets to be transported both domestically in Australia and to the world. The objective was to treat client's pets as it they were her own.
In 1998 her son Ken Heikkinen joined the team. After travelling the world and working in different industries his passion was within sales and marketing. Growing up with dogs, cats and horses also had a passion for animals. When returning to Australia from his travels he joined the company to help grow and market the business.
We now have a great team dedicated to the safety of the animals we transport. First Class care..all the way!
