Taking a dog from Taiwan to Japan on holiday

Taking a dog from Taiwan to Japan on holiday

Postby StiffUpperLip » 19 Oct 2015, 22:45

I suspect the answer is 'once, twice, thrice no', but I figured there's no harm in asking, so...is it even remotely possible to take a dog on holiday from Taipei to Japan and back again?

My internet research so far suggests the procedure is somewhat...complicated, and likely shockingly expensive even if it turns out to be possible. But I can't say for certain, since there's nothing I can find in English on the subject. I'm sure this question has been addressed for the benefit of locals, so does anyone know whether it's possible?

Don't do it. The best would be to find someplace to put your dog while your away.

What parts of Japan does your dog want to see? the autumn leaves are quite nice in the north at this time of year.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

Before the rabies debacle, there were organized tours for people to take their doggies with them on Japan tours -special accommodations, transportation, travel with fellow canine companions, etc. Alas, since Taiwan is not rabies free anymore, that is no mo'.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
