Dogs of the French bulldog, English bulldog, Boston terrier and Carlinos can only travel in the cabin.

Pets as cargo

When transporting your pet in the hold, your cage must meet several standards:

    The cage shell must be made of v> fiber. You can purchase a cage like this in the best pet stores or in specialized carriers. Do not forget to place a label on one side of the cage, indicating the name of the animal and the feeding instructions.

Regulations and documentation necessary to travel with dogs

First things first: let's choose the means of transport that we choose to travel with our dogs, there are certain rules that we must comply with, and a documentation that we will have to have. Let's see everything we need.

Before salt> Be sure to organize vaccinations, travel documents and other important matters well in advance. To find out about the required documents and the rules applicable to the transport of your pet, we advise you to check with the embassies of the countries of departure, transhipment and arrival.

You will find more information on the following websites to travel:

  • With origin, destination or within the European Union: consult the regulations of the European Commission. 
  • Some countries do not allow the transport of pets to and / or from those countries. For more information on these exceptions, visit the IATA website .

The pet check-in process may take longer. We recommend that you show up at the airport 3 hours in advance of the scheduled departure time and bring the checklist for the transport of your pet in the hold completed.

Expenses and transhipment

To take your pet, you must pay between 30 and 200 EUR, depending on the destination. In addition, if your pet travels as billable luggage and the transfer at Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport is 2 hours or more, you will have to pay an additional fee of 150 EUR (or 200 USD / CAD) to cover animal care expenses during the same.

In the animal hotel, we will give your pet something to eat and drink. Dogs will walk and cats will receive a clean litter box while remaining in a larger cage.

Passport for pets of the European Union

It's about the sanitary primer that your veterinarian gives you when you take your dog for the first time, and it is an essential document to travel with our furry. It specifies who is the owner, where he lives, what has been microchipped and his number, and all his medical history, including vaccines that the veterinarian has given him.

When traveling, It is mandatory that your dog be vaccinated against rabies, and if your trip is to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Finland or Norway, you must also treat it against Echinococcus multilocularis between 24 and 120 hours before arriving in the country in question. If you have any questions, it is best to consult with your veterinarian, who can best advise you in these cases.

Identification microchip

Is mandatory for all dogs, and certainly something that is essential in case our hairy gets lost. It consists of a small capsule, no larger than a grain of rice, that is injected under the skin of the animal, usually on the left side of the neck, and that contains digital numbers that veterinarians and competent authorities can read with a special reader . In this way, they can access the information data of the dog owner, and thus contact him and return it to him.

If your dog is "potentially dangerous" breed

If you have a dog of one of the breeds listed as potentially dangerous, in addition to the above, you must have a liability insurance and of the administrative license corresponding, issued by your City Council. They are two documents that you should always carry with you.

If you are going to travel outside the European Union

In case you are planning a Travel with your dog to a country that does not belong to the European Union, the best thing is that you contact the Consulate of the country you want to visit, in order to inform you well of everything you will need to be able to go with your hairy, this way you will save yourself possible problems. It is convenient that you get all the information at least fifteen days before the start of the trip, since there are countries that have special conditions, quarantines, vaccines against certain diseases that you should put on your dog, etc.

Anyway, in addition to all the documentation you need to travel through the European Union, there are two certificates that it is very important that you have at the time of travel with your dog to other countries:

International Health Certificate

It's about a official certificate of the College of Veterinarians, which must be issued by a veterinarian. This is the information it contains:

  • Owner information (name and address).
  • Description of the dog (species, date of birth or age, sex, breed, type and color of fur, particular signs of the animal).
  • Dog identification number (electronic chip).
  • Country of origin of the dog and countries in which it has resided in the last two years.
  • Data on rabies vaccination (place and date of application, type of vaccine, name of the laboratory and brand of the vaccine, name and identification of the veterinarian, validity of the vaccine).
  • Results of the serological test applied to the animal (blood test), including data from the laboratory where it was performed.
  • Results of the clinical examination practiced by the veterinarian.

You should keep in mind that this certificate should not be done well in advance, since its validity is only ten days.

Sanitary export certificate for pets

Once you have the Health Certificate, you must also get a Export Certificate, an especially important document if you are going to travel by plane with your dog, since, if you don't have it, they won't let you go up, even if you bought him a ticket. You must present it at the airport's cargo terminal, before customs authorities.

This is a document issued by the highest authority of agriculture and breeding of the country of departure, in the case of Spain, the Ministry of Agriculture. To know where to get this certificate, you can check this link, where you have the address and telephone number of all Government Delegations and Subdelegations responsible for issuing it in each province.

Choosing means of transport: how to take your dog in each of them

Now that we know all the necessary documentation to travel with our dog, choose the conveyance We are going to use. In this section we will review all the existing possibilities, analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of each of them. Go for it!

How to travel with your dog by car

When you travel with your dog, the car is undoubtedly the best option, the most comfortable and the one that will less stress your canine friend, since he will be with his human family at all times and, in addition, you can make stops so often as you want so you can stretch your legs and make your needs. For travel with your dog by car, you just have to comply with a series of rules that guarantee the safety of both your hairy and the rest of the occupants of the vehicle.

Your dog must travel in a way that does not distract or interfere in any way with the driver, and for this you must avoid being able to move freely through the vehicle, either by going inside a carrier, which you will place on the floor of the car, behind the front seats, if you have a small dog, or in the trunk, if your dog is medium or large. You also have the possibility> you must install a barrier or separator that prevents the dog from going to other areas of the car, and it will not hurt to protect the upholstery of your vehicle with a car cover or protector for dogs.

For more information on the subject, be sure to read our specific article on how to take your dog by car, where we tell you everything you need to know to enjoy a great car trip with your furry.

How to travel with your dog by bus

And we went from the ideal means of transport, which would be the car, which, in my opinion, is the least recommended for travel with dogwhich is the bus. And, today, the only way to make a trip with a dog by bus is to take it in the cellar, tucked into a carrier. I still remember a trip I made in ALSA a few years ago, and in which one of the travelers took his dog in the cellar: throughout the journey the poor animal did not stop crying loudly, which caused complaints of Some passengers and the driver made a stop to check if his owner had taken him to the bus seating area, how loud he could be heard screaming. And it is that traveling in the hold between the luggage, completely in the dark, with poor ventilation and hearing the engine noise has to be a really stressful and traumatic experience for a dog, which obviously does not understand what is happening.

Anyway, if for any reason you have no choice but to travel by bus with your dog, each company has its own rules, so the best thing you can do is check them. In the case of ALSA, which is the largest bus operator in Spain, dogs must travel in the hold, along with luggage, inside a carrier, and can only do so if they weigh less than 10 kg. As I tell you, my advice is that try to avoid the bus to travel with your dog as far as possible.

According to ALSA regulations "The animal will be in good physical, hygienic and mood conditions for the transfer, not being obligatory, although recommended, the use of muzzle". The cost of transportation will be 50% of the ticket price. The only dogs that can travel inside the bus, and also without having to pay for it, are assistance dogs.

How to travel with your dog by train

Travel by train with your dog It is possible, but with limitations and provided that the other passengers do not object and the animal does not cause discomfort. Your furry must travel complying with adequate hygienic-sanitary and safety conditions, and you must have the documentation in accordance with current legislation.

If you are traveling by AVE, Long Distance, Avant or Conventional Medium Distance

You can travel with your dog on these trains provided that it weighs no more than 10 kg and goes inside a cage or carrier whose dimensions do not exceed 60 x 35 x 35 cm. In addition, you must have a device that allows you to contain and remove waste. Only one animal is allowed per passenger, and you must place your carrier at your feet, so that it bothers as little as possible to other travelers. You should keep in mind that if you have a combined Train + Bus ticket you cannot take your furry with you.

The animals will travel with a ticket without taking a place. In AVE and Long Distance you must pay 25% of the price of the ticket, unless you travel in Preferred class, Preferred bed or Grand Class and Great Comfort Seat, in which case your pet's ticket is free. Similarly, if you travel in Avant and Conventional Medium Distance, you must pay for your dog 25% of the price of the Tourist class.

If you travel in Cercanías or Feve

In this case there are no limitations due to the weight of the animal, and it is not obligatory to go inside a carrier, although if it does not you will have to hold it all the time with a strap of a maximum of 1.5 m, and it will have to wear a muzzle , regardless of size or race. Animals will travel without a ticket and without occupying a place.

As you can see, if your dog is medium or large in size, traveling by train with him is not possible unless you use a commuter service. If you want to make a long trip in this means of transport accompanied by your furry, you will not be able to do it unless it is small. If this is your case, you are in luck. Of course, before embarking on the adventure of traveling with him by train, try to be very accustomed to being inside your carrier, so that you do not get overwhelmed much during the trip.

Travel with a medium or large dog by plane

As in the rest of public transport, if your dog is medium or large, traveling with him by plane is complicated, because you can't take him with you in the cabin and will have to travel in the hold. First, make sure that the airline with which you are going to travel admits animals in the hold, as there are some that do not (for example, Vueling).

In general, dogs of more than 8 kg and less than 75 kg can travel in the aircraft hold (counting the weight of the carrier). If you have a giant dog, more than 75 kg, in many cases you will have to travel as a load ... Come on, the bigger your dog, the worse it will have, and also, the more you will have to pay to be able to take it with you.

In this case, you must acquire a good rigid and sturdy carrier that meets the IATA regulations (International Air Transport Association) to ensure, as much as possible, that your dog travels comfortably and safely - you can see some suitable models in this post about carriers. Actually, IATA does not approve or certify any specific model of transport, but it does dictate standards with the characteristics that, according to its estimate, must be met by carriers for the safety in the transport of dogs or cats, and the vast majority of companies Airways require that the carrier comply with these standards to admit it.

Travel in the hold or, worse, in the cargo area, It can be a very stressful experience, both for your dog and for you: for him because he will be alone in a strange place, and for you because, from the moment you “invoice” you, you will lose all control over him, and you will not know how he is and if they will be taking good care, since passengers are not allowed to enter the hold. Therefore, unless you are going to make a long trip, of more than two months, the truth is that it does not compensate to make this animal swallow, at least in my opinion.

Special cases when traveling with a dog by plane

In most airlines, It is not allowed to bring brachycephalic dogs (flat snout) in the hold since, due to their physical characteristics, they have a high risk of respiratory problems and heat affects them more. If you have such a dog, you can only travel by plane if it weighs less than 8 kg, in which case you should go with you in the cabin.

It is cons> and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

In case you want travel with a dog considered potentially dangerous, you must put a muzzle to pass the mandatory safety controls and carry it in a carrier made of resistant materials, which does not have any plastic component and is provided with a secure closure, which cannot be accidentally opened. You should keep in mind that Not all companies admit this type of dog, and that there are even countries in which some races are not allowed, so, before planning your trip, find out well.

As to guide or assistance dogs can accompany you for free. If it is not too big you can go in the cabin, provided it fits between your legs and is tied at all times. If it is very large, you must go to the cellar.

Below you can see a list with the regulations on animal transport of the main airlines:

For more information on how to travel with your dog by plane, I recommend that you read this excellent and very complete article on the Mochilero Dog website, which goes deep into all the details of this topic.

How to find pet-friendly accommodations

At the time of plan a trip with our dog It is essential that we look for a accommodation in which we will be able to be with him without problems. Si bien aún hay muchos hoteles y otro tipo de establecimientos en los que no se admiten mascotas, cada vez podemos encontrar más sitios en los que podemos alojarnos con nuestros peludos, ya sean hoteles, casas rurales, apartamentos o campings y, de ese modo, poder pasar unas agradables vacaciones juntos.

Si decides llevarte a tu perro de vacaciones, ten en cuenta sus necesidades a la hora de planear el viaje: si es de los que necesitan mucha actividad podría ser buena idea optar por un destino rural, donde puedas llevártelo a dar largos paseos por la montaña, pero si tienes un perro tranquilo, que se encuentra a gusto y relajado en ambientes más animados y ruidosos, también puedes llevártelo a un destino más cosmopolita, y visitar alguna ciudad juntos: nadie conoce a tu perro como tú.

Al elegir un alojamiento, debes tener en cuenta que puede haber momentos en que tengas que dejar solo a tu perro, por ejemplo, porque quieres ir a visitar un museo, o salir a cenar a un sitio donde no puedes llevarlo. En este sentido, alojarte en una casa rural o un apartamento puede facilitarte las cosas, ya que los hoteles normalmente no permiten que dejemos a nuestros perros solos en las habitaciones.

Por suerte, en la actualidad hay varios sitios webs especializados en ayudarnos a encontrar las mejores opciones de alojamiento para viajar con nuestras mascotas, y que te serán de gran ayuda a la hora de planear tus viajes. A continuación te dejo un listado con algunas de las más interesantes:

Una vez hayas llegado a tu destino, lo lógico es que quieras que tu perro pueda acompañarte a tantos sitios como sea posible. Por este motivo, es importante que sepas que va a haber algún restaurante o bar donde te permitan entrar con tu perro.

Por suerte, poco a poco va aumentando el número de establecimientos hosteleros donde se admiten perros y, para encontrarlos, puedes echar mano a un par de webs que pueden serte muy útiles.

Una de ellas es, una web que nació con el objetivo de ofrecer a quienes compartimos nuestra vida con un perro información sobre sitios donde nuestros peludos son bienvenidos. Cualquier negocio “dog-friendly” puede registrarse gratuitamente para aparecer en la web, y los usuarios pueden comentar sus experiencias y recomendar sitios. Esto significa que es una página en constante crecimiento.

Otra web donde podrás encontrar información sobre establecimientos que permiten la entrada de perros es Mascotas Bienvenidas, de Royal Canin, que nos ofrece a todos quienes compartimos nuestra vida con un perro una gran información para encontrar sitios donde poder ir con ellos.

Cómo encontrar playas en España que admitan perros durante el verano

Por desgracia, ir a la playa acompañados de nuestros perros en verano no es tarea fácil, ya que en la mayoría de ellas no está permitida su entrada. Sin embargo, cada vez van habilitándose más playas caninas en el litoral español.

En términos generales, las administraciones que tienen la potestad de decidir si los perros pueden acceder a las playas son los ayuntamientos. Hay municipios que prohíben el acceso de perros a las playas durante todo el año, y otros que sólo la prohíben durante los meses de verano. También son los ayuntamientos los encargados de crear playas caninas, donde podremos acudir con nuestros peludos en cualquier mes del año.

Para saber dónde hay playas para perros en España, te recomiendo que le eches un vistazo a este completísimo artículo de la web Redcanina, que incluye un listado con todas las playas para perros que existen actualmente en España, divididas por comunidad autónoma, con mapa incluido.

En todo caso, y sea cual sea la época del año en que viajes con tu perro, si quieres ir con él a una playa que no está específicamente habilitada para perros y debidamente señalizada, lo mejor es que contactes con el ayuntamiento local, para que te informen de si puedes llevarlo o no.

Seguro de viaje para perros: ¿es necesario y/o recomendable?

Cuando viajas con tu amigo peludo, especialmente si lo haces a otro país, deberías plantearte seriamente la posibilidad de contratar un seguro de viaje para perros, de este modo, puedes tener la tranquilidad de saber que, ante cualquier imprevisto, tu peludo va a estar protegido.

Y es que, si bien lo más probable es que no os pase nada malo, más vale prevenir que curar porque, ¿qué ocurre si estando de vacaciones tu perro tiene algún accidente y tienes que llevarlo al veterinario? ¿Y si tuviera que quedarse en revisión unos días y perdieras un vuelo? ¿O si eres tú quien tiene un accidente o enferma y tienes que ir al hospital, qué pasaría con tu perro? Un seguro de viajes para mascotas cubriría todos estos supuestos, y algunos otros, por lo que, en mi opinión es muy recomendable hacerle uno a tu perro, para así poder disfrutar de vuestras vacaciones con más tranquilidad.

En todo caso, y si quieres saber más sobre el tema, te recomiendo que leas este artículo de MindfulTravel by Sara, en el que encontrarás mucha información interesante al respecto.
