Dog Import Question: Does the United States Have Breed Restrictions?

dogPit Bull Transport to the US

Hi PetRelocation,

Are there any special requirements for bringing my dog from Israel to the United States?

Thanks,

Hila

 

Hi Hila,

Thank you for your question! The United States is pretty straightforward when it comes to pet import requirements. Your dog will need an up-to-date rabies vaccine, a vet health certificate, and you'll also need an airline-approved travel crate.

We recommend flying with a pet-friendly airline such as United, KLM or Lufthansa, and pre-travel crate-training is very important. Please read more about these basic pet travel tips on our blog.

The United States does not impose breed restrictions, but you may need to have a reinforced travel crate for your Pit Bull (this ultimately depends on the airline's preferences). Either way, we recommend doing this research well before you plan to travel so as to avoid any surprises or delays.
