We continue to talk about the requirements for the carriage of animals by transport. The train and bus.

The summer continues, and some of us are choosing to stay together with your pet. The question often arises about the rules of carriage of an animal transport. If you are traveling with your pet, you should be aware that any form of transportation for the animal – stress. Than he longer, the more deep, so many owners choose the plane. However, if for any reason you have to travel by train then you should know that from August 2014 entered new rules of animal transportation on the Russian Railways. They are more stringent and financially costly. Despite a petition of appeal to the head of Russian Railways, signed by over 150 thousands of pet owners, the law has not been revised and remains in effect.

For the carriage of small domestic animals (Pets), dogs, and birds their owners or attendants must meet the sanitary-and-hygienic mode in the car.

In the vestibule trains of the suburban message are allowed and large dogs (maximum two per coach) under the supervision of their owners or accompanying passengers with payment for their transportation. The cost of transportation in commuter trains of small domestic animals (Pets) and dogs (including large breeds and dogs) and birds can not exceed twenty-five percent of the fare of an adult passenger on a similar route.

Rules of transportation of animals in the trains of the international message is almost identical to the requirements applicable to long-distance trains, with some exceptions: it is allowed to carry dogs, small (indoor) Pets and birds in the car of any class, including Luxury cars (business), subject to the payment of all seats in the compartment. Compliance with customs and administrative rules for carriage of animals is the responsibility of the passenger. Transportation of animals is not allowed unless the possibility of providing a separate compartment for transportation. It is allowed to carry not more than one dog or more than one cell with the animals in the compartment. And another note: please observe the regulations of importing animals to the country. In addition, some countries specify their own rules for importation of animals in transport. For example, in Slovenia, Yugoslavia, Croatia and Greece to carry Pets only in direct wagon route. Payment for the carriage of dogs will be charged at 50% of full cost of an adult ticket in the car of the 2nd class. In this case the passenger is obliged to follow in one compartment with a dog, paying for all the seats. Trips to China, Mongolia, Vietnam and Korea with a dog is allowed only in the cars of the 2nd class not more than 2 animals in the compartment. According to the Russian-Finlandzka agreement, the passenger may bring in the cars I and II class (except of the I-th class Suite) no more than two dogs, each on a leash, or two cells of animals or a dog on a leash and one cage with animals. Animals are accepted for carriage in the presence of accompanying veterinary documents: veterinary certificate No. 1, 2, 3; veterinary certificate form № 4; veterinary certificates of form № 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3. The validity of the above veterinary accompanying documents – 5 days from the date of issuance and prior to commencement of carriage.

Some pet owners are concerned about whether it is possible to carry your pet on the bus . Yes, it is allowed to transport across the country, however, with 2014 in the international-distance buses to do not allowed. Russia allowed the transportation of small animals (cats, small dogs) and birds in a special cage at no extra cost, and for the transportation of large dogs you need to pay for baggage or extra ticket. To carry large dogs can sit in the back seat muzzled and on a leash with the owner or maintainer. Before the trip we recommend you print a copy of the rules from the website of the Ministry of transport, as practice shows that not all the cashiers and conductors know the Russian rules. Remember, your OWN RULES the carrier can not be, the refusal to transport dogs is a direct violation of the law, but only if you have all the necessary documents and do not broke the rules. The regulations say that the dog must not disturb other passengers, so it is better to buy a muzzle, even if you are the owner of a little pug. And, of course, do not forget about the necessary veterinary and medical documents (vetpasporta with all vaccinations and certificate of health of the animal). Important note on vaccination against rabies, it will be interesting to watch in the first place, and the important term; it must be done not more than a year ago, but not later than 2 months prior to departure.
