Driving via Italy with 2 dogs

Post Posted: Sat Feb 17, 2007 12:52 am

Hi, I have searched the site but could not find if anyone has driven via the Italy route with dogs, as it seems not that smooth going through Serbia.We plan on driving to Veliko to work on our house in May and are trying to figure out the best, stress free for the dogs (and us) way.
Thank you

Hello there, we are also in Prisovo,and plan on driving out there in the next few months.Mostly concerned about our 2 dogs, they have already gone through a flight to the UK from the States so we are trying to find the least traumatic way there.
It should be an interesting time, not sure what kind of condition the house is in, OR HOW TO FIND IT AGAIN!, but we will be busy renovating I'm sure.

It does seem strange you would pick the option to drive you two dogs over. When clearly this would be more stressful. I flew my two dogs and cat over and then put them in a van. The whole trip was 6 Hours as opposed to 3 maybe 4 days in a van or large car. So sofia Airport to V.T is what 2hours maybe 2.5hrs plus a 3 hour plane trip. I know what i would choose if i was a dog.

We drove our dogs over through Serbia. They had no hassle, don't mind travelling in a car with plenty of stops. The only problem with Serbia was the dog bed was cleaner than the hotel!!

You should have Defra papers with you Anyway and they should state what countries you are going through. This you should of filled out yourself, with the help of your vet, your not importing them to Serbia so you should'nt need import papers. SO provided your pets are Upto date with Vaccinations And Pet passports or Chipped then you should be fine.

If you are worried about Serbia might i suggest you go through Romania now there in the E.U. And to be Honest theres not a lot of difference in the distance. Especially to V.T.
You can come down into Bulgaria via Russe. maybe.
