Our guide to taking your dog abroad

Taking your dog abroad does not have to be difficult. In recent years we have seen a lot of changes which have made the whole process much smoother.  However research still needs to be carried out and you need to be aware of the requirements for your chosen country.

Many dog lovers hate leaving their dogs at home or in kennels whilst on holiday, so more and more people are choosing to take their dogs on holiday with them.

People also move abroad and want their beloved pets to go with them. It was not that long ago when dogs had to go through a six month quarantine period when they came back to the UK. This was traumatic for the owner as well as for the dogs. Now it is a lot easier and as long as you follow the rules, you should be fine to travel with your pet abroad.
