Forbidden dog breeds in Europe

The prohibition of breeding certain dog breeds is not the same as the classification of the certain type of dogs as potentially dangerous breeds. These prohibitions are not the same in all countries. In some countries some specific breeds are totally illegal, whereas in others, they are simply on the list of potentially dangerous dog breeds. If the latter is the case, this means that the owner is asked to fulfil the requirements as having a legal liability or passing psychological tests etc. in order to own this dog.

In Viaje de Mascotas we take care of the security of your pet during the trip, therefore we are not going to transport dangerous animals or animals that might not be accepted in the country of its destination. It is very important that you read about the restrictions, before you start considering the transportation of your pet.
