Whether you are travelling inside the EU or further afield, it is a requirement that your dog has a Pet Passport before they can travel. At Barker and Hood we can assist with the acquisition of a passport for your dog prior to your travel or relocation. Depending on where you are travelling to will define what documentation and/or tests are required for your dog to be issued with a pet passport. We can assist in advising what it required and can help ensure that all relevant documentation is in order prior to travel.

In addition to acquiring a passport for your dog, when you are travelling within the EU or Worldwide there is likely to be additional documentation and/or vaccinations required before your dog is allowed to travel. As with the pet passport, we have a team of experts who are able to advise and assist in the acquisition of required documentation and make arrangements for necessary vaccinations.

When arranging pet transport by road or air it may be that additional kennelling is required. This is most commonly when a journey is carried out in stages or has a stop off whilst transferring from road to air transportation. At Barker and Hood we can help advise and arrange additional accommodation for your dog when it is required as part of the journey.
