Dog Boarding/Kenneling/Quarantine

Question
How long would my dog have to stay in quarantine for if I was to move from the UAE to the UK?

Answer
It is best to check directly with a UK government agency to get the correct answer to this question.  I am primarily an expert with respect to boarding pets while clients are away on vacation etc. and am not an expert on the requirements of various countries with respect to bringing pets into these countries.  I do know, however, that the UK has been quite strict in the past with respect to bringing pets into the country and at one time, the quarantine was up to 6 months.  However, I believe this may have changed, but I am not familiar with the current requirements. It would be best to ensure your pet is current with all the vaccinations required in the UK and make sure he has been thoroughly checked by a vet for these diseases (as well as parasites.)
