Moving Abroad With Dogs? K9 Magazine Advises

K9 Magazine, a digital lifestyle magazine for modern dog lovers, has stepped up to help meet the increasing demand from its readers who are interested in moving abroad with dogs.

Editor and publisher Ryan O'Meara explains:

"Over the past 5 years we have seen a real rise in the number of readers who have asked us for information on what to do when moving overseas with their dogs. This trend reflects global movement as more and more people seek to experience alternative lifestyles in foreign lands. The big difference now though is, particularly for British dog owners, it is more accessible than ever for dog owners to travel abroad with their pets in tow thanks to the relaxation of regulations under the Pet Travel Scheme."

The Pet Travel Scheme is the system that allows pet dogs, cats and ferrets to enter the UK without quarantine as long as they meet the rules and people in the UK to take their dogs, cats and ferrets to other countries and territories, and return with them to the UK without the need for quarantine.

For dog owners thinking of moving overseas with their pets, K9 Magazine advises to focus on four main areas of research:

– Climate

– Culture

– Convenience

– Location

Further, the guide explains:

"It is imperative to bear in mind that other countries, even those in the EU have very different laws regarding property and acquisition. It's also important to become familiar with local laws and by-laws as they relate to dogs and people. Some countries have different laws on certain types of dogs and pet ownership regulations change from country to country."

The guide: How To Move Abroad With Your Dog, is available to access via K9 Magazine's website.
