Never thought about dog food. Especially canned. Had wondered about the Purina dry food our vet has our puppy on as to whether it would pass the border crossing. Not many stores carry the food we use. Would have to carry a supply with us. We are looking at the Bama Bob trip to go.

last thing you want or need is to be looking at the border staff that have a different opinion of the law because wearing a gun and doing your job is not always...

We cross the other way - into the USA. I always review the current rules of what can and cannot taken across the border. These change frequently in response to pests that threaten agriculture. This includes dog food ingredients at times. Always leave dog food in the original container that lists ingredients. We carry proof of all vaccinations including rabies. Sometimes the US border guards review them but frequently don't. On our last trip a very stern officer barked "What is this?" When we explained that it was the dog's paperwork he all but tossed it back and said "I don't do animals!!" And we crossed the border. Check and follow the current regulations. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy our Country!

Both sides have some very special guards with guns. we had just purchased our new truck and were returning back to Canada with it when we got randomly picked for a vehicle strip search...

Being Law enforcement at the time I knew my rights... which with these guys and gals are not many...
anyway the Canadian Guard commented on the new (very clean white) PU saying "nice truck, how new?" - as he bounced the rear door off the inspection table taking a big chip of paint off the door edge as he bent the lip.

99% do not have an attitude. I pretty much seem to get that 1% all the time.

Enjoy the exchange rate and scenery - it's incredible

Pets and Border

We take our cat everywhere, and did the ALCAN in the spring of 2014. All we had to have was a letter from a vet saying the animal was healthy, and a record of her current up to date vaccinations. Never had a problem at the border with the animal, just a tomato that we hadn't eaten before we arrived in the US.

We travel into Canada with our dogs for shows. Always have their shots up to date (although we usually aren't asked to show the papers). We bring their food in unopened bags or cans and have never had a problem (keep the food in the commerical bag once its opened for return to the US). we bring as much dog food as they'll need for the trip. Having a folder with the dog(s) health records is handy. Each of our dogs has a folder and we put the current shot record right on top for quick reference. Our dogs are crated when we cross and we've never had a problem going across either border. cincia

We have been across to US though many different points and only asked to see rabies shots paperwork once. We get asked at more than half of the camp grounds for the rabies paperwork though

Just imuniztion records for the return to the USA. Oh and leave any guns at home unless you want to see a Canadian prison. And they enforce it!

We took our girls to Canada last year. We were told that we needed to bring their Rabies vaccination certificate that has the serial numbers on it.

We were not asked for it in either direction. However, I would make sure to have it just in case.

It really was a non-issue.
