Good news

Good news for dog owners!

If you often travel abroad for your holidays, what (0) __________ with your beloved pet dog? Do you put him in a kennel or leave him with friends? One thing is certain, you’re extremely unlikely to take him with you, because if you (1) __________, he (2) __________ six months in quarantine when you return. A bit of a stiff penalty for two weeks’ romping in the Dordogne! But this is set to change soon. From April your dog will be able to travel with you (3) __________ he (4) __________ a rabies vaccination and is wearing an identification chip. Cara Lewis, spokesperson for the Animal Welfare Society, said, “This is very good news for all British animal lovers. I know many people who (5) __________. take their dogs on holiday with them if only they (6) __________ . Indeed, I used to travel to northern France regularly and I (7) __________ my dog Wolfie with me every time (8) __________ the quarantine regulations.” But Cara also has words of warning: “Pet owners should remember that there are other considerations when taking animals abroad. (9) __________ your animal become disorientated, he (10) __________, so ensure that he is wearing a collar with your holiday address at all times.”

It isn’t all good news, however. If you (11) __________ to a country outside Western Europe this year, you (12) __________ your pet with you ‑ it will be some time before regulations for other destinations are relaxed, if ever.
