Move to UK with dog

Hi people,

we are moving to UK with our dog, he can't go in the cabin. Anyone has a company can transport him as a cargo :/?

Re: Move to UK with dog

Cannot help with your question but I presume you have checked out the rulings for bringing a dog to the U.K. I know someone who didin't. Sad story. Nothing happened to the dog, but the holiday took place in France instead of in Wales.

Re: Move to UK with dog

Maybe my incident was pre 2012. Rules changed then. Or maybe at all the borders they had crossed previously they just weren't checked at all.

How about you drive with the dog instead of flying? Putting a dog in the cargo hold is a horrible experience for them.

Re: Move to UK with dog

Exactly- just drive over and viad the Tunnel so they don't have to stay in car alone for the ferry crossing. We do it all the time- just come back an hour ago. But make sure the passport is up-to-date and the vet check and worming BY VET is done and signed at the right time. We saw 2 people refused access to the crossing this time, and another last time we went, and so many more over the years- they are absolute sticklers for things to be 100% right with the documentation (and the microchip which must be registered in passport).

We always make a stop in Calais at a Hôtel where dogs are welcome before the crossing- to break up the journey.

You need more than that as dodgyken says.

http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/in...ance-checklist

The airline you're going to be travelling with should also have this information on their website I would think.

If you want to find a specialist shipping agent just google "pet transport companies uk" and you'll get plenty of results.

Re: Move to UK with dog

We were at the Tunnel pet check at the same time as an agent- the van was full of animals of all types in cages on top of one another- all the way to the back. I certainly would NOT want any pet of mine to travel this way, ever, I have to say.

I am a DEFRA licensed animal transporter, however I only ever transport one families pets at a time. Certainly not the cheapest way of moving them, however in my opinion it is the next best thing to you doing it yourself. I make a point of stopping every 2 hours and walking dogs on lead for at least 15 minutes.
