What preparations are necessary to move my dog from Prague to France?




Hi Mike,

We'd be happy to offer you some advice about your upcoming pet relocation. Here's an overview of the pet import requirements for France from our website. You can also go here to read more about traveling within the EU with pets.

Other important considerations: you'll need to make a reservation with a pet friendly airline if you're flying (we often use KLM and Lufthansa for European pet travel), and you'll need to buy the correct travel crate. Sometimes the one you need seems surprisingly large, but for pets' safety they should fly in a crate that allows plenty of room to breathe and move around. Here is more info about pet travel crates.

Hopefully this starts you off on the right track. Please contact us if you'd like to find out about our services. Good luck!
