What are the recommended shots that my dog will need to get before moving to Alaska?




Hi Kristin,

Luckily, pet transport within the United States is relatively simple. Check out the requirements for traveling with a pet within the United States. You'll notice that the only required vaccination is for Rabies, and that your dog will need to get that shot at least 30 days before traveling. You will also need a health certificate from your vet stating that your dog is healthy enough to fly and issued within 10 days of departure. We also recommend microchipping your pet before travel, though it's not required.

Now that you know what health requirements your dog will need to meet, all that's left is the logistics of getting your dog to Alaska. If you have any questions about pet shipping or pet air travel feel free to contact us.
