Pets (dog) and International Border

We will be taking our dog with us on our trip to Alaska this summer and will have four border crossings to do.
What documentation is needed for shots and such and which one US or Canada requires the most documentation?

My wife and I have heard every story there is so I want to hear from someone who has actually done it.

Go to any vet and you should be able to get the appropriate paperwork. A few customs locations have the ability to "read" the implanted chip (if any) to verify the dog matches the paperwork. It's really a minor issue overall.

Try calling CBSA (Canadian Border Protection) and get the real story about what you need.
Then talk to your Homeland Security people.

This is for traveling into Canada with a pet from USA. Hopefully this link works and provides you with what you need to know. You may also contact the Customs Business information Service line from out side Canada at 1-204-983-3500. May not be a bad idea to contact the border points you are crossing at either.

Bring your dogs!

Vet records are needed.
Only bring enough dog food to get across the border. Might get taken away.

But, leave your guns at home! Lol
I've been watching too many border patrol episodes.

We took a trip around Lake Superior in September and asked Canadian authorities and Dept of Homeland Security what was needed. To go to Canada, we needed proof of rabies vaccination, for the return to the U.S. they wanted a form filled out by the vet.
As it turned out, at both border crossings, we were not asked to provide anything at all.
YMMV

We had all the paperwork but in 4 crossings we were never asked to show it. It is no big deal, a least with one small dog.

I guess with the exchange rate.. The black market on puppy chow is the new crack?


We were planning a trip to Can-Adia as well this spring.. But we have a trained attach cat (or so SHE thinks) so I wonder if that makes a difference.
