Can I send an 8-week-old puppy to Germany without getting a Rabies shot?


Hi Liz,

Thanks for your question! Because the health of a pet should come first when planning a move, it's our company policy not to relocate puppies until they are at least four months old. They're old enough to get a rabies vaccine by then, and they're generally better able to deal with the traveling experience.

Here are the pet import requirements for Germany. Take a look at the information out there, and please contact us if you have any more questions. Good luck with all future traveling!
