Dear all


we have a holiday apartment in Lo Pagan, has anyone got any experience of bringing a dog to Spain for short periods such as 4-8 weeks. I understand most of the paperwork side of things but could do with advice on the actual logistics 


car and or plane ✈️ advice would be good 


I’ve heard BA allow pets in the hold. 

We are from the London area 


many thanks

I worked in the aviation industry for 30+ years. NEVER send your pets by air! I have lost count of the number of very sad 'incidents'.

Hi 

I’ve travelled from Glasgow to Murcia& back with my French Bulldog going to Portsmouth for the ferry to Santander and she has always been fine if you stop every 4-5 hours for the toilet and a bit of food. We had to book a kennel the first time but we were with her till 10pm and kennels open again  at 7am she was fine throughout the whole journey just left a bowl of chicken and a bowl of water in the kennel for her with my tee shirt so she could smell me (.and gave her a half of boots travel sickness pill )if your lucky you can also get a ferry with  dog friendly cabins also to&from France you can leave your dog in your own car . I have travelled all 3 ways and she was always fine . Good luck you’ll enjoy your holiday more with your dog with you !
