Question by stephendavis2: How do I ship my two dogs from Los Angeles to Stuttgart, Germany?
I am moving for a job from Los Angeles to Stuttgart, Germany. I have two dogs at about 45 pounds each. How are they shipped? Can they fly in the cargo bay with me on the flight? Do they need to be quarantined? Will they be coldy down there?

Answer by HarryB
Have your dogs had rabies jabs? Do you have pet passports in the USA?

Also when animals are in a planes hold they put the heating on down there so no they won’t be cold!

    To ensure that there are no problems on entry, every pet that comes from a third country and is imported into the EC must be
    • clearly identifiable by microchip (or a readable tattoo as a transitional arrangement until 2 July 2011),
    • properly vaccinated against rabies,
    • accompanied by an veterinary inspector’s certificate in which the microchip or tattoo number has been entered.
    In addition, vaccination certificates and in some cases blood-test details must be carried.
    Dogs imported from an area where rabies occur which did not have a blood test taken will undergo a 3-month quarantine period.

    The following breeds may not be imported to the federal state of Baden-Württemberg:
    American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier

    The following breeds may not be imported without having passed a character test: Bullmastiff, Dogo Argentino, Dogue de Bordeaux, Fila Brasileiro, Mastiff, Neapolitan Mastiff, Spanish Mastiff, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Tosa

    Animals will be transported in a separated area of the freight-room which is heated and ventilated.

    You need to get them an EU pet passport first.

    They will need a rabies shot (at least 3 months before you leave), be microchipped, and get health certificates. Your vet should be able to provide the details.

    The UK has special rules for animal entry, so you need to avoid flights with layovers in the UK.

    How they are shipped depends on the particular airline, so you will have to contact them directly for details. Generally, they are shipped in kennels in the cargo bay. Some airlines have temperature-controlled areas for the animals (I know KLM does). The airline handles all transfers at the airports. The fees and taxes add up quickly, so make sure you get a definite written quote from the airlines for the price. You’ll need to know the measurements of your dogs, along with their weight, and either buy kennels or rent them from the airline. Some airlines only allow animals to travel together if they were littermates, so again, check specifics before you book your own ticket.
