CHECKLIST FOR GUIDE DOGS AND ASSISTANCE DOGS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

The following checklist will ensure that your trip goes smoothly; have a good read before setting off:

  1. PASSPORT AND VACCINATIONS
    • Always check that your guide dog’s passport and vaccinations are valid.
    • See the following web site to verify the required vaccinations: https://www.gov.uk/take-pet-abroad.
  2. VETERINARY CHECKS
    • Remember to arrange the mandatory TAPEWORM–CESTODA vaccination (to be given between one VETERINARY CHECKS and five days before the dog travels).
    • Make sure that your dog is in good health to cope with the trip.
    • We recommend a trip to the vet’s as a precautionary measure.
  3. CERTIFICATES
    • When booking the flight, keep your guide dog’s or assistance dog’s certification card to hand, as issued by the association responsible for training.
  4. WHEN BOOKING THE FLIGHT
  5. EQUIPMENT
    • Ensure you have all the necessary equipment for your dog and its needs, such as a leash, water container and suitable food.
  6. ON ARRIVAL
    • Never disembark from the flight if the staff responsible for checking your dog’s documents are not with you, even if this means having to wait on board.
