“Who will look after my dog?” is a common dilemma when going on vacation. Our solution was to bring our Yorkshire Terrier, Winston, along with us for a six week trip to Spain.
Winston has travelled with us on several road trips in western Canada and the US, but we have never taken a pet on a transAtlantic flight. If we were taking a shorter trip or one with multiple stops, we wouldn’t take our dog as it wouldn’t be worth the expense, red tape, or the stress on our dog. The experience turned out to be a great one for us as well as Winston.
Why we decided to take Winston on this trip:
- Our stay was long enough to make the effort and expense worthwhile.
- Winston is small enough to fly in the cabin with us.
- We were planning to stay at one location, rather than moving a lot from place to place as we have on other trips.
- There is no quarantine period for pets entering the EU from Canada.
