What do we have to do to ensure our dog can come live with us in the United States (we'll probably be landing in California). Your information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the question, we'd be happy to help. First, read over these basic pet travel tips in order to become acquainted with the essential logistical details, and then take a look at the pet import requirements for the United States.
To summarize, you'll need proof of an updated rabies vaccine and a health certificate, an airline-approved travel crate, and before you fly we recommend acclimating your dog to the crate as well as possible. We also suggest making an effort to choose a pet-friendly airline (we often use United, KLM, Lufthansa and British Airways).
