Pet Breed: American Blue Staffy
From: Sydney, Australia
To: Banff, Alberta
I'm moving from Sydney, Australia to Banff, Alberta on the 15th of October 2014. I would love to take my American Blue Staffy over to live with me. I was just wondering what I need to do to get him over there and also would like to know how much it will cost?
Any help would be appreciated.
Sure, we'd be happy to offer some information.
First, take a look at the pet import requirements for Canada. Via the official government website, you'll see that you'll need a rabies vaccination certificate or a vet health certificate. Be sure to look over these details carefully to avoid any problems or delays.
In terms of additional pet travel information and tips, you're welcome to take a look at our blog. We recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline and finding out what their particular requirements are, helping your dog to be well-acclimated to his travel crate, and discussing any health-related questions with your vet.
One further thing to note: some airlines (including Air Canada) require that American Staffordshire Terriers and other “strong breeds” travel in reinforced crates, so you'll want to double check with the airline you're planning to use to find out if they impose this rule.
