Are you going to go on a trip outside the Czech Republic? We have a few tips for you on how to prepare well for hiking with your dog.
Documents and vaccinations
It has been possible to travel with a dog in the European Union since October 1, 2004, but only with an identification document. This document is referred to as a so- called pet passport and refers to animals vaccinated against rabies.
Every animal that arrives on the territory of another country within the EU must have this identification card, which will enable health checks.
Marking the animal with a microchip is also mandatory. Tattoo markings are also recognized. However, the condition is good legibility and implementation before July 3, 2011.
If you are going to Great Britain, Ireland, Finland or Malta, you need to have your dog dewormed (antiparasitic treatment against Echinococcus).
3 things you will need to travel with your dog:
IDENTIFICATION BY TATTOO OR MICROCHIP.
VALID VACCINATION AGAINST RABIES.
How are the puppies?
Animals aged between 12-16 weeks can travel, but even in this case vaccination against rabies is mandatory. The exception is that the vaccination does not have to be valid yet. Detailed conditions for traveling puppies to EU member states can be found on the website of the European Commission .
What if you have more dogs?
You can travel with a maximum of 5 animals. If you do not qualify for an exemption (animals are over 6 months old, traveling to a competition, show or sporting event and are registered for that event), you must meet the veterinary requirements for commercial movements.
