You can enter or return to the UK from EU country with your dog if it:
has been microchipped Your dog could be refused entry or put into quarantine if its microchip can’t be read when you enter or return to the UK.
has a pet passport or third-country official veterinary certificate You don’t need a third-country official veterinary certificate if your pet was issued with a pet passport before leaving the EU and the treatments are still valid. Any booster vaccinations or blood tests carried out from outside the EU must be recorded on a third-country official veterinary certificate.
has been vaccinated against rabies You must wait 21 days after the vaccination (or the last of the primary course of vaccinations) before bringing your dog to the UK. Booster vaccinations: check your pet passport to find out when the booster vaccination is due.
had a tapeworm treatment A vet must treat your dog for tapeworm and record it in the dog passport every time you want to bring it to the UK. The treatment must have been given no less than 24 hours and no more than 120 hours (5 days) before you enter the UK. You don’t need to treat your dog for tapeworm if you’re coming directly to the UK from Finland, Ireland, Malta or Norway. The treatment must: 1. Be approved for use in the country it’s being given in 2. Have praziquantel or an equivalent as its active ingredient
Note: your dog may be put into quarantine for up to 4 months if you don’t follow these rules – or refused entry if you travelled by sea. You’re responsible for any fees or charges.

My dog Bob and I are really enjoying the classes. Dog Centre has really helped us both. My relationship with my dog Bob... is so much stronger now. I feel more confident, my dog is happier and so am I. Since September of 2019 my dog Bob is a lot more calmer, happier and relaxed around other dogs, a lot less reactive. I highly recommend Dog Centre. Artur and Eva are amazing, I trust them completely with my dogs. My dog Bob loves his walks with Eva and I feel that this along with the classes, one to one sessions and putting in the training at home has really helped him. Bob adores Artur and Eva and I am so grateful for all the help and support they have given us. 🙂read more
