Dogs are transported by rail, road, air, sea and river transport, but no matter what type of transport they transport the dog, it must be examined in the veterinary clinic by a veterinarian beforehand.
The owner of the dog must have a veterinary certificate confirming that the dog is healthy and she has been vaccinated against dangerous infectious diseases. Only in this case, he has the right to purchase a special ticket for the dog. Sick dogs from areas unfavorable for contagious diseases are not allowed to be transported.
It is forbidden to transport dogs on metro journeys, as well as in soft wagons of long-distance trains, on sea and river vessels of fast lines, on passenger buses of intercity communication. In some regional cities dogs are not allowed on the tram or bus. In any case, when transporting in public transport, the dog must be on a leash and in a muzzle.
Miniature dogs and puppies are transported like small animals, i.E. In baskets, boxes, or suitcases specially designed for this purpose with a trellised front lid.
In airplanes and helicopters dogs in muzzles and on short leashes are placed next to the owner. Transportation of large dogs (heavier than 20 kilograms) is carried out in the luggage compartment of the aircraft. Please note that some airlines prohibit the transportation of large dogs.
When boarding a vehicle, dog owners must take precautions to prevent injury to animals. So, when the sides of the trucks are lowered, you need to make sure that the paws of the dogs do not fall between the side and bottom of the body, etc.
During the transportation of dogs by all means of transport, walking is carried out on long stops, in specially designated places. At such parking sites, dogs can be fed, but not earlier than 12 hours after the previous feeding. When being transported by motor transport for long distances, dogs are fed 3–5 hours before departure, and 1–1.5 hours before departure, they walk.
Allowed to transport dogs in a taxi in a muzzle, on a short leash and a rug. Carriage of dogs – guides blind is not paid.
Stock up on drinking water – dehydration occurs faster in aircraft than on the ground. Take care that your pet does not suffer from a lack of air in its container or cage. Do not try to calm the animal with medication.
After a long carriage by road or by plane, the dog needs a long rest.
