Taking your dog to France

European health rules apply.

Your dog must be in possession of a valid European pet passport. The European pet passport identifies your dog by means of an electronic system (chip) or a tattoo, and states the mandatory rabies vaccination (administered at least 3 weeks in advance). Available from your vet.
Your dog must be insured. (Does your insurance cover accidents/damage caused by your dog?)
Special provisions for attack, guard, and defence dogs, which can be dangerous. There are 2 categories named :
Category I: attack, guard dogs not registered in a recognised pedigree, similar in physique to the breeds Staffordshire terrier, American Staffordshire terrier (“pit bulls”), Mastiff and Tosa. It is forbidden to take these dogs for a stay in France or to take them on transit in France.

Category II: The second category of guard or defence dogs concerns pure dog breeds registered in a recognised pedigree: Staffordshire terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler and Tosa. Dog-like breeds and dogs similar to the Rottweiler breed. It is allowed to bring these dogs for a stay on or transit through the French territory. However, wearing a muzzle and being leashed is mandatory in places open to the public, and the owner must also be insured for this animal.

Both categories are not welcome at Keraluic. To avoid mistakes, we always ask for your dog’s breed when booking. The pet passport will be checked on arrival.

The owners of Keraluic always have the deciding word.
