Can we still import a dog into the USA during COVID?

If so, what are some bits of advice to a newbie?
Or buying from overseas, for that matter...

It depends on the location and where in the US. I usually get mine flown into Detroit from Germany, but this time it was a no go. They could get the pup to Chicago, but that was too far for me to drive.

It is best to ask your breeder to check on their end.

According to 'duke1965' on here, he is able to send dogs overseas from Cz, I believe. Not sure which airport(s) though.

If buying from Canada, you may need to air ship dog as the border is closed to non-essential vehicle traffic. There is another thread about options from Canada.

Yes, it is possible, only to certain airports and from certain countries. Most breeders overseas have a good broker who can figure all this out.

It sucks and doesn't make sense to me that dog import rules are different now but we (USA) live in the worst country in the developed world for COVID so it's not surprising that we're essentially being sanctioned. Blame the "leadership."

jilmissal, LOL you are not living in the worst country for covid by far, havent been to europe lately I guess LOL its rather funny that the so called free western world is fucked up over this mostly, but we can still ship dogs for now, just prices are up, flying direct flights only is advised, connecting flights are crap, mostly because of airlines who do them

Duke is 2,000 euro to much a show line puppy? They were a lot cheaper 3 years ago.

I imported two pups from Czech this summer. They had to ship out of Amsterdam, direct flight to Atlanta.
Very expensive...shipping was more the twice the price of the pups.

by Mprimm on 24 October 2020 - 13:10

No, 2,000 just for the puppy, shipping extra.
