Great question, I asked myself this when I was moving and I had my pet with me.

Canadian regulations were not that complicated for dog. I brought with me a Black Labrador from Egypt. I got my vet to prepare all the necessary paperwork; it included authorization from the ministry of agriculture for some reason where they verify all the necessary vaccinations.

In regards to flight arrangements, we had to take Lufthansa, as they accommodated pets and offered a pet lounge where they take care of the animal from a to z.

Plus it is also important to note you have to careful where you have a lay over because some countries hold pets in quarantine.
