Canines in Canada?

I could use your help, dear readers … my husband and I are driving to Syracuse, New York this Friday morning and, as we usually do, are planning on making the trip through Sarnia instead of going the Ohio route. The only difference for us this year is that we are taking our two dogs on the trip with us, and I have no idea whether Canadian border crossing authorities will allow us to pass through their country with our dogs. If anyone has any experience with this, please chime in below in the comments section. Thanks!

    don’t know about dogs but when i tried to cut through on my way to Rochester NY recently i was denied access because my car has tinted windows. i turned around, waited fifteen minutes, pulled through a different lane and got in. true story.

    I asked my neighbor, who takes her tiny inside-the-purse dogs into Windsor frequently to see her family. She said she always brings a certifcate from her vet stating that the dogs are rabies-free. Sometimes she has to show it, sometimes she doesn’t…but it’s always gotten her across the border.

    Thanks, Abster, for the info. and for going out of your way to ask your neighbor. She was absolutely right — after some research, I found that dogs 3 months and older can go into Canada with a valid rabies vaccine from the past 3 years.

    No problem. Thought I must admit, I don’t think that walking about ten feet to the left of my door really qualifies as “out of my way”!
