why cant they fly with you?
heat is no big issue as long as you have ac or shade and water if the dogs are outside
shaving the dog is not a good way to deal with heat btw
their coats insulate them from heat as well as cold
Since you are clearly considered a valued new hire, ask your employer for help in moving logistics. I imagine they have faced similar problems bringing personnel and families to Abu Dhabi.
Not sure what you mean by "fly with me." Pets being shipped to the UAE are required by law to come as "Manifest Cargo"
I've talked with my employer. They did provide me the contact information for an international shipper that had been used by prior employees. Which is where I was given a rough quote of 7-10 thousand dollars for the complete process. While I'm trying to figure out how to make that work it is very possible that my entire relocation expense reimbursement allowance will be consumed by just shipping my dogs.
