Traveling With Dog

Postby orhunter » Fri Oct 12, 2018 12:57 pm

Some states require vaccination documentation when coming in from another state. Do they really check? Who is in charge of enforcement in MT and ND. I'm picking up a dog from KJ next week and he's scrambling around trying to get stuff in order but I wonder if it's really necessary? I've been going to the Dakotas since the mid 90's and have never seen a Fish and Wildlife officer. I used to take some paperwork but quit doing it as it seemed like a waste of time....and paper.

Oh man, I must be a dang outlaw!

I'm in ND all the time (and SD). Been stopped by the green jeans, but they've never asked about the dog.

That's what I figured. Laws with no teeth.

I carry a copy of Rabies Vaccine in the glove box. Needed it and a Health certificate to get in and out of Canada and they did ask for it. Never been checked in the States.

Been in and out of Canada the past two years, never been asked.

I always have it with though, no sense in ruining a trip.

Going into California was the only state I’ve been checked.

Dmog: Who checked and why? Do they just pull over vehicles with out of state plates and dogs in them?

Required by law to have proof of rabies to cross state lines.

As long as your dog doesn’t bite anyone, nobody will ask or care. If your dog does bite someone they will be subject to quarantine.

I assume the rabies tag on their collar is proof enough. Or do you need papered certificate?

CA has stop stations going into the state just like a foreign country. You are required to stop and they look in your vehicle, see your dog and ask for the required rabies vaccination records. Luckily, I had them.

Dmog: Wow!!! "Foreign country." No kidding. We need a wall around that state. Cut 'em off, let 'em rot. I remember going across the border when I was a little kid and being checked for agriculture products.

Rabies tag says the year the vaccine was administered, but not how long it is good for (1yr vs 3yr) so if your tag is not within the same calendar year you will want the certificate.

In the realm of things you can do to *not* have issues on a trip, taking care of the legal requirements is a pretty simple, and relatively cheap way to avoid some possible aggravation and delay.

Yup. It is an expense, but a pretty mild one. Driving across a number of states to have a discussion in the field fervently explaining to the nice officer why you don't have a need to comply with their rules... just seems like it might not be one of the best ideas of the year.

Make the bed you want to sleep in, eh? :)

As Regulations go this one is pretty simple. Just put a photocopy of your rabies vaccine in the glove box.
