There have been done horror stories about dogs in cargo but then again I have no idea how Nancy people use this now. Personally, I would rather drive with my dogs, but then I have a 60kilo mastin and Border Collie 😂😂

Could these links go into a pet sticky thread, might be useful for others?

Good idea - I've added a link to this thread to the 'Animals' section of our FAQs sticky.

If we had an individual sticky for each section we'd have over 30 stickies......

I'm reading this thread with great interest.
It's my first post here and the reason for posting is this thread.
We are not totally expat yet and would love to bring our dog with us but it seems such a complicated and expensive thing to do.
Many times we have flown into a Spanish airport and have been greatly amused at the amount of dogs that wander around with their owners so we know it is possible.
Why do uk airlines make it so hard and expensive....or in most cases don't even offer the service at all.

I don't think that its complicated to take a Dog Spain. It just needs a pet passport and a rabies jab. (see your vet and they will sort it all out) I think the Pet Passport is around £100, then you get in touch with one of these Robbing **** Sorry AGENCIES , and they sort it out for you. I don't suppose I mind too much about paying around £1000 as a one off to take my dog to Spain (If I must) but we were hoping to take our dog back to the UK for long "Holidays" when we moved to Spain, but this will now be impossible for us to afford.(£2000 return trip). We Cant and wont put him in Kennels for two or three months while we return to the UK too see Friends and Relatives

Is the option if driving totally out of the question, it's a much cheaper option for taking pets.?

I don't have experience of flying dogs from the UK to Spain but the dog rescue and rehoming charity I help run frequently flies dogs to the UK and other destinations in Europe, sometimes with the dog's adopter, sometimes with a flight buddy.
As long as the paperwork is in order there is no problem. Norwegian are a good airline, in our experience at least.
Our dogs always fly from Malaga.
I would personally not fly my dog anywhere but then he is rather large (a Ridgeback) and the experience can be traumatic for some dogs. Our vet has prescribed a mild sedative for our more nervous dogs.
When we moved from Prague to Spain we preferred to drive. The journey took three days but our boy was snug and comfortable in the back of our Discovery, we had plenty of breaks for him to exercise etc. and most importantly he was in our care all the time. We made the journey pleasant for ourselves too, booking 'nice' dog-friendly hotels with recommended restaurants.
That would always be my choice but of course it isn't always possible for some people so if not flying with your dog yourself it's important to choose your pet transporter very carefully. There are some rogue companies around.
