Hi Jo, thanks for your inquiry!
If you haven’t already, take a look at the Germany Pet Import Requirements on our site for an overview of what you’ll need to do upon your move. In terms of relocating a Rottweiler, much of Germany does require a viciousness test. If your dog passes, you may still be subject to additional rules and fees in order to keep your pet in Frankfurt.
It would be best to check with the officials within the appropriate state to find out the latest information concerning Rottweiler rules and restrictions. Frankfurt’s official site, Germany.info or the office of the vet you plan to use in Frankfurt may all be of service.
Reaching out to the online pet community may also be helpful. Join us on Facebook to become acquainted with thousands of experienced pet travelers who are often happy to share advice and knowledge about an array of topics.
Good luck in Germany, Jo, and let us know if there’s anything else you need!
