Auckland to Los Angeles, United States
Hi Sommer, I have collected Frankie and she is all good! They said she didn’t bark at all and was really happy which is so great. She was super chilled in her crate when I got her.  Just went for a quick walk around the airport dog park - Freedom Park is a good spot to recommend other clients if they are traveling to LAX!  Thanks again, we really appreciate your help to get here home safely!   Kind regards, Gabrielle
