Question
Hi,
i would like to travel from NewZealand to Germany and back for a vacation to my parents. I have a toy poodle 3 kg.
Is it okay to travel with her without her being in quarantine?
Thanks
Patrick

Answer
I do not think you will have issue traveling to germany the problem might come when traveling back to New Zealand. New Zealand is considered Rabies Free status and I am not sure if Germany is 100% rabies free. But I really am not the best to answer this question as I am in the US and have very little experience with International Pet travel in your part of the world.

Expertise

My main focus is teaching pet owners how to choose and properly prepare an airline carrier kennel for a safe and comfortable trip. I can answer any questions on the subject of purchasing an airline approved carrier or kennel. I can also answer questions on how to modify or prepare an existing pet carrier kennel to be safe and considered airline compliant. Also any questions on how to ship a pet domestically in the USA. I can not answer questions on required paperwork for importing or exporting pets internationally.

Experience

My experience includes owning and running a Luxury Cat Care Facility since 1997 - Kitty Cat Condos. While running the facility I have used my daily pet experiences to invent and develop many pet travel products, many of which are Patented. The most well known is DryFur® Travel Pads. I now run a blog dedicated to sharing free information to pet owners who are often overwhelmed with the task of traveling on airlines with their beloved pets.
