Pet Friendly Villas France. Dogs On Holiday

Can you take dogs to France on holiday?

You can absolutely take your dog or pets on your family break. Since Brexit, it is no longer as easy or cheap as it was pre-brexit. Before the referendum, you could get a pet passport and simply keep it up to date with proof of vaccinations, which you would need to have anyway even if you were not travelling with your pets, and the only additional thing you had to do was get a French vet to stamp the passport in France and give a worming tablet, before returning to the UK.

Now, you have to get an Animal Health Certificate (AHC) in England, before you travel, earlier than 1 day before travel and no more than 5 days before. The AHC will cost you about £200 because simply put, vets don’t want to do it and will charge you for them to have to do something they don’t want to do, and is boring paperwork to them – it take 1 hour or more to complete.

If you’ve got more than one dog, the form allows up to 5 dogs per AHC, wo it doesn’t need to cost £200 per dog. In fact, if you are travelling with another family who also has pets, see if your vet can put them on the same AHC to split the costs.

All that said, you can take your dog to France. Make sure that your villa accepts dogs and pets. And has a private heated pool.

If you can, if you have an address in France, if you have a property in France, you can register your dog as being French. And the insane part of this brexit agreement – once your dog is French, you dont need to pay £200 per trip for the AHC. You simply do the old pre-brexit process of getting the vet to stamp your French pet passport and doggo gets a worming tablet.

Does France allow dogs in restaurants?

France’s eating habits generally favour dogs. To help ensure you get the very best experience possible, some restaurants in France will allow you to bring your pet.

I have personally eaten at a number of restaurants with my dog. I sat outside because I wasn’t sure my pooch would behave indoors. As it was, he was very well behaved. Outside, they had a wall-mounted bull ring that I would attach his lead to and extend the lead length so he could wander about for 2 or 3 metres. And we continued with our meal. Everyone was happy.
