Trip To Canada

Next year we are planning a trip to Canada. I know about not bringing any guns into Canada but what about dogs. We travel with 2 dogs. Is there any thing special we will need for them other than up to date shot records?

All you really will need is bordatella (kennel cough) and rabies shots. We travel back and forth every winter to go to Florida. Most times they don't even ask for that.

We also travel back and forth with dogs. Hsobel is right. Sometimes they don't even ask about the dog, and they often don't look at their papers.

According to the official Canadian website on importing pets, Canadian Food Inspection Agency - Pet Imports, the only thing you need is proof of rabies vaccination. The rabies vaccination certificate must contain certain, specific, information which is outlined at the above website.

As for firearms, Canada is not like Mexico; i.e., *some* firearms are allowed across the border with the proper permits. To find out which are prohibited, which are restricted, and which are non-restricted, visit the Royal Canadian Mounted Police website.

Oh, and be sure to take your passports or passport cards with you...you'll need them to get back into the U.S.

We crossed the border last year. We made sure all of our dogs shots were current and also got a certificate from our Vet before traveling. We weren't asked for anything on the dog, in fact we weren't even asked if we had a pet with us.

We crossed a few months ago and the main concern was that we would be out of Canada before the dogs shots expired.
