Traveling from US to UK with my dog?
Topic: Guide to writing a will uk
June 25, 2019 / By Talbot Question:
Any tips are appreciated. I'm making a check list for a 3 month trip to London from Los Angeles next January. My dog is a 2 yr old Yorkie, with no health conditions, 7lbs.
-I already checked to make sure my vet is USDA approved and can help with proper paperwork exams, vaccinations needed.
- I have an appt made with my own doctor to make sure he can classify my dog as an emotional support animal for my anxiety and depression.
-I am planning to get in touch with a dog trainer, just as a refresher for proper behaviors/manners.
-Currently looking at carriers for to buy so he can get used to them ahead of time. Stuck on Sleepypod Air or Sherpa Delta Deluxe.
-I am in LA and am planning on taking him with me on a short plane ride to SF in June. Just so his first plane ride isn't the longest. He's okay with car rides.
-My vet already sent me a link on her site with a few traveling tips when it comes to calming aids, nausea, and such.
-Planning to buy a bellyband. He will pee on that flight, and it seems the easiest way where I wouldn't have take out a pad lining his carrier.
Things I'm a little unsure about.
-While I'll be mostly in London. I may want to explore other parts of the UK and other countries in Europe. I'm not sure if the documentation will mean I can exit and re-enter the UK. Or will I need to see a vet while there to make things simpler.
Am I forgetting anything. I want to make the plane ride easy for my dog, myself, while not annoying any of my fellow passengers.
-He is emotional support. I have never been without him for more than 2 days. Prior to him I had a dog and can't recall leaving him for more than 4 days.
-Belly Band I can switch out the lining of just the band and dispose of it. I wouldn't leave it on him the entire flight.
I do not understand why people are being rude and attacking. I am trying to find the best way for my dog to travel. Leaving him at home isn't an option because he is emotional support. Helps me from going on higher doses of medication.

It's from a couple of years ago. Not sure if any new laws have taken effect since the person wrote it, or if they updated all linked articles.You should try getting in touch with that blogger though.
But as someone stated ultimately contact the airline your flying, for more factual information. I've only flown within the US when taking my pooch anywhere.
Maybe instead of your dog needing a calming aid, ask your doctor for on for yourself if your pet has to be flown in the cargo space. It's not that bad, loads of people do it they just blow up the few stories where something goes wrong.

You need - Health certificate , another letter within 10 days of flight from Vet saying cat is healthy to fly - Must be within 10 days of flight. The cat will be needing a micro chip for most airlines . It an airline rule not Mexico.
It getting hot and some airlines will not fly pets in hot weather - Check !
The cat hes to be current on all shots. Immigration Will check !
Go to Delta and Continentals web sites as they have the best info for pet travel. If you have questions and need a person call Continental , Deltas people are hard to get a hold of . Airline rules dont vary that much beteewn carriers, they are pretty standard beteen all.
Even if the cat is going on the plane in a cage below your seat , you will still have to clear customs and immigration and its a pain...................You probably will have about $200 in some crappy fees they charge. Check and make sure the special pet/animal customs officers will be on duty at the time you land. Chance are past 5 pm they will be off work and closed and your screwed.
This is not an ease task. Homework...............Do your homework.
Link over to me and give me your e mail if you need and more help.
Contact the airlines you will be flying with & they will give you all the information you need on how to transport your dog. Don't know the laws in the UK as to whether or not you can go from one country to anther with a pet.
Since a ESA is not trained to preform specific tasks for you it does not have the same privileges of a Trained Service Dog. An ESA certification will allow you to have a pet in a housing that does not allow dogs. But it is not a Service dog & all it does is allow you to have a pet at home.
" Since emotional support animals are typically not trained for an individual's specific disability and since emotional support animals might not be dogs, they do not receive the protections of the ADA. A public place can therefore deny an emotional support animal admission."
I have never flown anywhere & don't even know the rules of regular travel. The airlines may be able to supply you with some of the rules & regs of having a dog as a travel companion. Check if there is a quarantine time from country to country. I have heard that some places will keep a dog under quarantine for up to 6 months but I don't know what countries have these long quarantine periods. Check it out before you go.

Find what motivates your dog. Some dogs do anything for food. Some dogs do anything for Toys. Some do anything for a good petting. Some do anything for only one type of food, like cheese, or hotdog. Some only have interest in training for 5 minutes at a time, and others can go for an hour. Figure out what your dog is willing to work for, and then work with her in sessions that are no longer than she can tolerate. How to train your dog properly https://tr.im/J27jk
Sign up for a dog obedience training class. It will not train your dog. It will give you training on how you can train your dog. Most people understand the idea of training, but there is a right and a wrong way to do it, and there is good and bad technique. Timing and consistency is very important, and it helps to have feedback of someone watching you who can help you improve your technique to get more efficient results with your dog.
However, she may be somewhat anxious around other dogs, sort of like the shy kid on the playground. She will benefit from continuing what you are doing as far as asking her to sit before entering, but there are more things along those lines that will help her to calmly go in and out of the dog park. She may also benefit from going in short bursts, or only when fewer dogs are present, or avoiding times when other dogs that make her nervous are present. Maybe she just plays loud - my brother's dog is this way - or maybe she is a dogpark bully - sorry it is possible. But more likely she is just a little anxious around new dogs and she wants to play but just doesn't quite know how to do that and still feel comfortable. Don't be surprised if your dog does not actually like the dog park, and maybe she would get more enjoyment and less stress out of simply going for a good walk somewhere else.
A wagging tail does not mean that your dog is happy or even comfortable with the situation. It means your dog is emotionally aroused. This could be a happy arousal, or it could be a nervous arousal, or it could be an aggressive arousal. Go youtube it, there are plenty of videos of 'vicious' dogs who are throwing a very aggressive fit of barking and snarling while their tail is wagging vigorously. Even police dogs who are not let off the leash to chase down a suspect can be lunging and barking and snarling, and their tails are still going.

"I have an appt made with my own doctor to make sure he can classify my dog as an emotional support animal for my anxiety and depression"
?? Most international airlines do NOT permit any dogs in the cabin except Service Dogs. An ESA is NOT a SD.
"Planning to buy a bellyband. He will pee on that flight, and it seems the easiest way where I wouldn't have take out a pad lining his carrier."
So if you do manage to sneak him on board, you expect the people near you to put up with the stench of urine? This is one reason WHY pet dogs aren't allowed in cabins on international flights. If you take the dog, he has to fly in cargo. And since the trip is only 3 months, I suggest you leave him at home with family or friends.

In Uk we are rabies free so have very strict rules about animals coming into the country. I would recommend you contact DEFRA which is the Uk government body that can tell you all legal requirements you need to meet to bring your dog into Uk. Animals that travel into Uk most travel in cargo hold unless support dog with relevant paperwork which can with the right paperwork travel in cabin with you but either you or airline can't remember which need to inform the animal reception for the airport as they have to arrange for a member of staff to meet the flight to check your paperwork before allowing you enter. To travel to Uk your dog will need a pet passport and if on your visit you leave Uk to visit Europe you will need to see a vet in that country who will worm etc before it is allowed to come back into Uk. We have vety strict rules to prevent rabies and even if one detail is wrong your dog will either not be allowed in or end up in quarantine kernels

Originally Answered: Traveling without papers?
The short answer is no. Anyway who has overstayed a US visa and remained in the US illegally would be banned on returning, some for 5, 10 years or forever.
That said if the US Immigration somehow has no record of a person ever staying in the US illegally, then with a valid passport, and visa if required, that person should be able to enter the US.
