Your little one could fly Air France in the cabin no problem. There is a 17 pound weight limit including the dog and the carrier. In terms of getting from France to England, after looking at the ALL the options we found Barry at :

He will meet you in Paris and drive you across through the Eurotunnel for a fee. Trains, planes and one way car rental is not an option.

Your big dog could come with her on Air France but since it would have to be in the cargo hold anyway it may be cheaper and less of a headache to have it fly to Heathrow and you meet it there. Once its checked in at its originating airport it will not know the difference.


A link to the UK government website that explains what they want you to do.

The USDA has laid out all the steps for getting your pet ready on the USA side.

To UK:

To France:

A brief rundown of the steps areā€¦

1-Get your pet microchipped with an international ISO chip.
2-Must be vaccinated for rabies. This is VERY detailed. Read it.
3-Pet must wait 21 days AFTER the rabies vaccination to enter UK.
4-Have a USDA accredited vet issue complete and sign the EU certificate.
5-Have your local state APHIS office sign and seal the EU certificate.
6-Dogs must be treated by an accredited vet for tapeworm between 1 and 5 days before entry into UK.

Hope this helps... good luck to you and the poochers!!!!

Thanks so much for all the info.  Thinking France may be our best option.   :)
