How to transport dogs?
Traveling with animals such as dogs can bring a lot of trouble if you do not know the simple rules of their transportation. It's about them that we'll talk.
How to transport dogs in public transport
Transport animals in the city publictransport is allowed, but subject to certain conditions. This is due to the fact that dogs do not disturb other passengers. Therefore, the dog on the bus, tram, trolley and the subway should ride in a muzzle and the owner is obliged to keep it on a short leash. If the dog is aggressive towards others, the owner is obliged to calm it with the help of special pills - otherwise the dog can be refused to transport you. As for payment for the animal, you may be asked to pay for the transportation of only a large pet. For the remaining fee should not be charged.
How to transport a dog in a train
Transportation of an animal on a train is already associated with largedifficulties and financial costs. First, you need to take a certificate in the veterinary clinic in the form of F-1 that the dog is healthy. Next, you need to buy a baggage on the dog in accordance with the weight of the animal (except for the case with the purchase of a separate compartment). If you want to carry the animal in a compartment, then either you must buy the coupe entirely, or arrange with the neighbors that they will not mind the trip with your four-legged friend. In this case, it will be useful to stock up a carry-over or a cage for the dog. Also one or two dogs can be carried in the tambour (non-working) of the first car - of course, under the supervision of the owners. You can carry free of charge only guide dogs to visually impaired people. However, you can not bring any dog in a luxury car. As for the transport of dogs in suburban trains, the dog should be kept in the tambour under the supervision of the owners.
How to transport a dog in an airplane
Many airlines prohibit the transportation of animalsin the cabin of the aircraft, but it is not forbidden to transport dogs in the luggage compartment under certain conditions. First, the dog owner must have a certificate F-1 that the dog is healthy. Secondly, a ticket must be purchased for the dog. As for transporting an animal in the cabin of the aircraft, only owners of dogs weighing no more than 5 kg, as well as visually impaired and hearing impaired people who travel with a guide dog, are entitled to do this. Also, to transport the dog you need to purchase a special container. It does not matter, in the cabin or in the luggage compartment there will be a dog during the flight. Please note that the dimensions of the container must be such that the dog can stand and turn freely there, and the product itself must meet the requirements of the organization (International Air Transport Association).
More about the requirements of each carrieryou can find out on the websites of companies. I would like to note that the best airlines are served by such airlines as KLM, Lufthansa and Delta - do not consider for advertising: only the facts. As for how to transport a dog across the border, you need to know the requirements of the state where you are going. The only mandatory vaccination, which is required by all without exception, is a vaccination against rabies, and it must be done no later than 2 months and not earlier than 1 year before departure.
