Good luck and safe travels
Peanut, Thanks so much. That was very reassuring, especially that you've been crossing for 8 years w/no problem. Could you please give me the # of the Canadian Border Control? Thanks again.
My answer would be no trouble. If that's all that was on his record. Call the border and talk to a border agent. That would be best. Then you know for sure. I had one 18 years ago and have been crossing for eight years with 0 issues.
Question: I have a nephew who had a DWI 27 years ago. Would he have a problem crossing the border? Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.
Kona, Sent an email off to the Canada Border Service Agency. They responded within 12 hours and cleared all my concerns up. Quite surprised to get an actual person to provide the information.
Does anyone have experience with taking a dog into Ontario? I understand the vaccination paperwork, etc. But I have some concerns about the ingredients found in my golden's kibble. My research leads me to believe the food can't contain any animal-origin ingredients. Any help with this would be appreciated.
AROD- I can't help you but you could try Walleye Central under their "Canada EH!!" forum. That is a pretty popular forum for guys going to Canada and someone might be able to help you. I know I have seen pictures with dogs on trips on that site.
12 days til trip 1 of 4!!
