Traveling Through Canada with Dogs

Has anyone recently traveled through Canada with dogs? Are there any requirements beyond current shot records?

Thanks,

We did last year. Vet claimed we needed the air travel certs, but my wife insisted on only shot records. Canadian and US border folks didn't ask for it, but that's all they require.

I'm told that Canada restricts breed. Put Bull's (American Staffordshire Terrier) are not allowed.

I have never verified this, so it might be worth a call beforehand if you own one.

This page on the Canadian government site can answer all your question. Just click thru to the area about dogs. I am linking to the top level that lists all types of animals.

According to this Canadian government website they are only restricted in the province of Ontario. Info is the last link at the bottom of the page.

Not all of Canada - some provinces have breed-specific bans. Ontario is one. Not sure how/if it's enforced at the border since CBSA is a federal entity and not a provincial entity.

You might get hasseled re: dog food. I think dry is OK but anything fresh I think they frown on it-same as when we head south-no meat or meat byproducts. Not a big deal as most of the same dog food is available in Canada as in the US( and that is where most of it comes from).

They actually want you to have unopened bags of Dfood at the border so that it is assured that what is in the bag is what the bag says. Had a Canadian Customs Officer explain that to us once.

FWIW I've had dogs back and forth the border probably 20 times and only been asked once to see the shot records.
I actually had one of my dogs stow away. She had jumped in the motorhome before I left for a race in BC and I only found her when I was about half way to the border.
Naturally it was a time when they asked about pets and I fessed up. Told the story and he laughed and let us through.

When we lived in Alberta and crossed into Montana at Sweetgrass they asked to see the vet records for our 2 dogs. The same thing when we came back into Canada.
We now live in B.C. and cross frequently and have never been asked either way.

We don't take dog food across, we just buy it after we cross.

Nope I actually had a hassle with a cop who thought our Pug/Shiatsu was a pitbull cross. I suggested he get an eye examine which really made his partner laugh. Ontario has a ban on Pitbulls and from the sounds of things when they throw out the Liberals now ruining er running the place some of these ill thought out laws will be rescinded.

Does this mean in a can unopened? We've always traveled in Canada with dogs - no problem. We are headed to Newfoundland with two. From what I read about places to go they are all dog friendly, which is wonderful. But I don't want the border to confiscate 10 cans of wet food. They eat dry food but I put the wet in their Kongs.
