We are travelling from UK to Spain leaving around 20th May - Heading towards Madrid and travelling on furher south to Murcia area - but happy to divert to other areas if requested.

We will be travelling in a long wheel base high top van and so will have plenty of room if anybody needs anything bringing from the UK. We will be bringing our dog with us to spain and are well versed with Pet Passports etc and are happy to bring other dogs/cats with us, as long as they are crated.

We are not professional removers just people who are happy to deliver for some help towards travelling costs.

Please email me if you need to know anything.

Yes, there is a vaccine now for leish - i was advised that you should get  your dogs blood tested first (to ensure they didnt have it already) and then there were 3 injections all 3 weeks apart all costing 50 euros each.. so 150 euros per dog.. and they would need a booster every year after that. It is very new. I am still thinking about it.

All vets are different i guess and just like in the Uk there are different charges.... my vet is near fuente alamo - i guess you just have to shop around, but as i say, if i can get it from the uk then it is still cheaper... even at 18 euros for a single application it is expensive considering i can buy 3 months for 14.00 and postal is £6 courier.. so a saving of £30 and with 5 dogs it is a massive saving. There is a product called Advantix which protects against sandfly but it is on prescription only  and so not available unless you have one, or unless you have a very good vet in the UK. I cant use advantix on my dogs as they react.. so i use Advantage or Frontline and the collar. So far so good :o)

Its been 6 months or so but i thought i would just give a quick update with regards to our journey with the dogs.

We arrived at Portsmouth Ferry Terminal with all dogs comfortable in the car. They checked their passports along with ours and stuck a sticker on the screen of the car.(Dogs on Board)  No physical checks were made and we were not required to scan for microchips. We drove onto the ferry and once parked we took the dogs to the kennels at the top of the boat (we went to Santander and this is a 24 hour ferry journey)... the kennels were noisy and you are expected to provide all bedding and food (some people didnt realise this and their dogs had to sleep on the cold stainless steel) luckly i took everything with me and mine were comfortable. As youa re not allowed access onto the car deck for the journey it is not wise to leave dogs or cats in teh car when anything could happen. We had access as often as we wanted in teh kennels and were allowed to take them out for a walk.. bit windy up top but enjoyable and mine loved it. Had to hold the leads tightly incase they blew away lol

On arriving at santander we drove off the ferry and our personal passports were briefly looked at as we drove past.. no checks were made on the dogs whatsoever. We continued to drive to Santander stopping several times for coffee and to stretch our legs. There isnt a french border(as i thought there would be)  just a sign telling you lol

I have since made a couple of journeys back to the UK with 1 dog and we had to take him to the vets for his frontline (even though i do this myself every month) - it has to be stamped and signed by a vet in the passport for the UK Border control to see.   At the ferry (Calais) the dogs passport was checked and we had to take the dog to a separate office where we were handed a scanner and they read the microchip (this all took approx 1/2 hour and there were lots of dogs queueing up.) Once this was completed we were allowed to continue. It was the same on the eurotunnel.

My dogs love the warm weather here and sunbathe when they can. I dont take them on the beaches and they wear their scalibor collars all the time. I have the scalibor collars and frontline sent out from the uk as it is much much cheaper. The vets out here charge 30 euros for a collar and 35 euros for a frontline .... my collars cost me 10 and i buy my pet meds from bestpet website (google it) and ask my sons to send it out to me...

So, Brian , hope you are looking forward to coming out in June.. not long now.... stay in touch and maybe we can go for a dog walk lol
