I was hoping to get a detailed list of the export requirements from the USA and import requirements of Scotland. I'm considering using your services and I just want to know exactly what all of the requirements are.
Sure, we'd be happy to point you in the right direction. The USDA is a good source of official information; take a look here for an overview of pet import requirements to the UK (including a link to the new health certificate). As of December 2014, pet import rules to the UK have changed a bit -- please read more about those EU Pet Travel Scheme changes on our blog.
In addition to meeting these paperwork and vaccine requirements, you'll also want to prepare your dog for travel by helping him/her with travel crate acclimation. Choosing a pet-friendly airline and acquainting yourself with all travel procedures is also important. To dive deeper, please read over these frequently asked pet travel questions.
If you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services and speak to a Specialist about your move options, you're welcome to fill out our online consultation form at your convenience or give our office a call. We've helped many pets move to Scotland (including Bella, for example) and would be happy to help with your dog's move, as well.
Hope this helps to get you started! Please let us know if/when we can be of further assistance, and good luck with everything.
