Alpine holidays with dogs

If you love your holidays but always feel sad at the prospect of leaving behind your four-legged friend, then a summer holiday to the French Alps is the answer! 

A change of scenery, plenty of space, breathtaking vistas, deep-blue lakes and stunning mountain walks make for dog (and owner!) heaven.

Taking your dog in and out of the UK

  1. From 1/1/21, you will need an Animal Healthcare Certificate for your dog to travel within the EU (current EU pet passports issued in GB will no longer be valid). This may take a month to arrange. You can find out more about how to apply for these here - 
  2. To travel between the UK and France your dog must be microchipped, have had a rabies vaccination, and a tapeworm treatment. 
  3. Your dog should have a microchip that meets the ISO standards. You may have to bring your own microchip reader when you travel if your pet’s microchip does not meet ISO standards. 
  4. Your dog must have had a valid vaccination against rabies (whether first or a booster) 21 days before travelling, and your dog must be at least 12 weeks old at time of vaccination).
  5. Your dog must be treated for tapeworm by a vet every time you want to travel to the UK, between 1 and 5 days before you're scheduled to arrive. Treatment date and time must be recorded in your pet's documentation. If you need to find a French vet, visit (type ‘Vétérinaire’ in Quoi or Qui box and your destination in France e.g Chamonix in the Où box. If you tick the ‘a coté de’ box you will find the vets near to your destination).
