Festive songs are heard from all sides, and cities are decorated with Christmas trees and bright lights. This means that it is time not only to prepare gifts and draw up a menu for the festive table but also to make plans for the New Year holidays. Many of you will probably not want to stay at home all week but will plan a trip to visit or abroad.

Friends and acquaintances agree to help someone, while others are looking for hotels for animals, and for others, there are no other option but to take a pet with them on a trip. Consider the current rules for the transportation of animals in 2021, think about how to minimize the stress of the animal during the trip, we will decide.

Car ride

For animal owners, moving on their own vehicles within the region of residence, the situation is the easiest. You do not really need documents for the pet, but it will be good if you still have them. You only need to provide a comfortable environment for your dog during travel. You can buy pet travel carrier to make travel more comfortable for your pet. Also, in the event that you plan to leave your region with your dog, you must have two types of documents with you:

  • Veterinary passport. It is drawn up in a veterinary clinic, contains information about the breed, special signs, vaccinations, past diseases, and other important information.
  • Help in form №1. It is used to confirm the absence of dangerous diseases in the animal at the beginning of the journey, as well as quarantine in the region of detention, issued only by a public service veterinarian.

The first document, ideally, should be brought up immediately after the animal has appeared in the house; the second should be received at least five days before the start of the trip. The certificate is usually issued on the day of application. If you do not take care of the execution of these documents, a driver stopped by a traffic police officer or another structure of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and did not have the above papers will be fined.

Theoretically, in your own car, you can place the animal as you like. There are no special requirements for this. But in doing so, it is best, of course, to adhere to the general rules dictated by common sense. For small animals, cats, and miniature dogs, it is best to use cages and carriers. In this case, if an animal panics at a friend, it will not interfere with its chaotic movements in the cabin to the driver and passengers. To avoid damage to the interior, it is necessary to cover the seats, the floor and insulate the door trim.

Train ride

If you choose a train connection for travel, carefully read the rules for transporting animals so as not to realize on the platform that a further trip with your pet is not possible—everything in order. Here at billige-hundebur.com one cans more info.

The list of animals that can be transported according to the rules of the Russian Railways is quite exhaustive: cats; dogs; rodents (squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats); non-poisonous reptiles (turtles, snakes, lizards, chameleons); non-poisonous amphibians (frogs, toads, newts, axolotls); aquarium fish and molluscs (snails, shells); birds (pigeons, parrots, chickens, ducks, pheasants, hawks); arthropods, except for the Red Data Book. If you find you’re favourite among the above, you can breathe out calmly: the way to the train carriage is open for him.

For any pet carried on the train, a special ticket is required, and this applies to all pets, without exception. Please note that not every carriage can carry pets. Before buying a ticket, find out on the Russian Railways website or in the ticket service support service, in which trains and carriages going in the direction you need, animals can be transported.

If you are planning to transport a small home zoo by train, you will have to take one more passenger with you, since according to the rules, there can be no more than two “animal” tickets for one “human” ticket. All animals allowed for carriage, except for large dogs, are accommodated in cages/boxes/containers suitable for transportation and during the movement of the train take up space for carry-on luggage. The sum of three measurements on the outside of the means of transportation should not be more than 180 cm. Large dogs, including service dogs, must be transported in separate compartments, with full redemption of all seats, but without additional payment for the fact of transportation.
