Pets across the border

As I read it I can take my dog to Canada as long as I have a rabies certificate.

Anyone have problems either crossing into Canada or back into the US with just a certificate?

As long as you have the original document of the Rabies vaccine and if its a 3 yr vaccine makes sure the vet certificate highlights. We've seen 3 yr vaccine and the vet certificate still reflects an annual vaccine. Also if the dog is still a puppy and is in between the 1st and 2nd vaccine you won't be allowed in as the they don't consider a puppy immune until the 2nd shot. Enjoy your trip to Canada.

Your vet should be able to print out a complete vacination history for rufis.You should also have any documentaion showing licences. We cary all of that in the same envelope as our passports,truck/trailer registrations and insurance documents.You will need a canadian proof of insurance card that your agent can make. After going thru all of this You will likely be like us and nobody at the border will care,never ask for it,all they want is passports and drivers licence.

Comming back they never ask to see anything except where we lived.

I have crossed the border into Canada 2 times, and once back into the US with my dog in my pickup. Just make sure vaccinations are current, and you can prove it. Not a big deal. It is easier than taking the same dog on the jet.

We have crossed the border several times with our Poodle. Have all her paperwork with us, but never been asked to show it.

The bigger "issue" crossing the border is fruits, vegetables, alcohol, tobacco, and fireaarms, but I know those issues have been discussed at length in another thread.

We cross twice a year (on way to and from Arizona) and we carry our dog's vaccination certificate with us. We are Canadian, but our dog is a rescue dog from Mesa, AZ. His certificates are from the Yuma Humane Society. We have never been asked to view certificates.

I always remember a very stern US border guard on one of our crossings into the USA. We have our dog's paperwork organized into a small passport type book. DH handed all 3 sets of paperwork over. Agent barked "what's this?" DH replied it's for the dog. Back came the bark "I don't do animals". I was awaiting redirection to a separate checkpoint. Nope - we were waived on our way. Guess he's not a fan. Others have met us with dog treats. Carry all the necessary paperwork and go with the flow.

We crossed the border many times last summer with our two dogs. They never asked if we had pets with us. The best policy when crossing the border is to be polite, remove your sunglasses, answer only when spoken to and don't offer any info they do not request.
