Travelling with dogs from the UK to France and other EU countries

There are new rules in place for travelling with dogs from the UK to the EU and from Great Britain (GB) to Northern Ireland from 1 January 2021. Pre-Brexit and pre-Covid we travelled extensively with our dogs, including across Europe and to the USA.

In the end I settle on getting from Manchester to Paris via London, and then flying from Paris to Venice and back again. This is how the mad road trip turned out ...

Charley says … #5 out and about with the Doggie Dictator

We thought we’d done her in and she was never coming back but this morning we hopped into the car to go on our morning walk and when we got to the car park and climbed out, who should be there but the Doggie Dictator.

So it looked like our morning was not going to include the normal high jinks but actually things did not unfold as expected and I was pleasantly surprised, of which more later.

We're often asked how we "make" our monkeys sit still for photos. The answer is that they don't! Here's just a few of the out-take shots ...
