My friend has a puppy and he is 5 weeks old now. I would like to bring him to Holland, but what are the requirements and at what age can I ship him to Holland? Or if I fly with him are the rules different then?
Thank you for your question. We recommend that dogs fly only after they've reached the age of 16 weeks. At this point they're stronger and better able to handle the experience of travel and can also receive the necessary vaccinations for international import.
As far as the rules you'll need to follow, please take a look at the pet import requirements for Holland. It's not necessary for you to be on the same flight as your dog, but either way the import rules will be the same and we do recommend choosing a pet friendly airline (KLM and Lufthansa are often good choices for European pet travel).
Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have more questions, and if you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services, please fill out our free quote form.
