Dog Transport Service
Introducing Our New Dog Transport Service providing hustle-free official paperwork for the transportation of your dog.
When you decide to transport a dog, there are several obligatory important documents and forms that you may encounter. These paperwork requirements aim to ensure the safety and well-being of the dogs being transported, establish ownership, etc. We provide specialised paperwork regulation on your behalf so you can ensure a smooth and secure process for transporting your beloved furry friend. Some of the documents required for this service are:
- EU Pet Passport:
When transporting your dog from the UK to Ireland, an EU Pet Passport is essential. The EU Pet Passport serves as an identification document for your dog and contains vital information, including microchip details, vaccination records (including rabies), and ownership information. It is important to ensure that your dog's passport is up to date and compliant with EU regulations.
- Microchip Documentation:
In both the UK and Ireland, dogs must be microchipped for identification purposes. Before transporting your dog, ensure that the microchip has been implanted, and the information is registered with an approved database. This documentation will be required to verify your dog's identity during the transportation process.
- Rabies Vaccination Certificate:
To transport your dog from the UK to Ireland, a valid rabies vaccination certificate is necessary. The certificate should demonstrate that your dog has been vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian. Ensure that the certificate includes the date of vaccination, the vaccine used, and the veterinarian's signature. This documentation is crucial to comply with the requirements for importing dogs into Ireland.
- Tapeworm Treatment (Dogs only):
For dogs entering Ireland from the UK, a specific tapeworm treatment is required. The treatment should be administered by a veterinarian within a specific timeframe before entering Ireland. The details of the treatment, including the name of the product used and the date and time of administration, must be recorded and documented by the veterinarian.
- Transit Agreement:
A transit agreement or contract between you and the dog transport service is important to establish the terms and conditions of the transport. It typically includes information such as the agreed-upon pick-up and drop-off locations, expected travel dates, fees, and any additional services requested. Reviewing and signing this agreement ensures clarity and mutual understanding between you and the transport service.
- Contact Information:
Providing accurate and up-to-date contact information is crucial for effective communication during the transportation process. This includes your phone number, email address, and emergency contact details. The transport service will need this information to update you on the progress of the transport and to contact you in case of any unforeseen circumstances or emergencies.
- Crate Requirements:
The transport service may have specific requirements regarding the size, type, and condition of the crate used for transportation. Adequate and secure crates ensure the safety and comfort of your dog during transit. Ensure that your dog's crate meets the transport service's guidelines and provide detailed information about the crate when requested.
- Transfer of Ownership:
When transferring the ownership of a dog for transport, it is advisable to have a clear and legally binding document to ensure a smooth and proper transition. While specific requirements may vary depending on the circumstances and jurisdictions involved, here is a general outline of a dog transfer of ownership document for transport:
Start the document with a clear heading indicating that it is a "Dog Transfer of Ownership Document for Transport."
