Choosing the right dog transport bag is essential!

The nature of the train journey with your dog depends ... on its weight! SNCF regulations are very clear: a dog weighing less than 6 kg must be brought in a transport bag. He can be taken out, provided he is kept on a leash. You can install it at your feet or even on your knees. It will cost his master about thirty francs to keep him with him. For a dog weighing more than 6 kg, the transport price is equivalent to a second class half-fare ticket. For two dogs or more, it costs a full second class fare ticket per dog. The tickets of the owner and the dog (s) must be taken at the same time, and must be composted before departure.

In theory, the dog should be kept on a leash and muzzled. If it is wise, the controllers can accept that we do not put the muzzle. It is preferable, however, to bring one, to cover any eventuality. It is forbidden that the dog be installed on the benches: it must be at the feet of its master. For large dogs, it is better to reserve a place near the door and attach them to the luggage rack, otherwise they will be very poorly installed between the chairs. In compartment trains, the dog can accompany his master in one of the two, if no other passenger objects. In the event of a refusal, the handler and the dog must remain in the corridor. Certain breeds are prohibited in public transport (Pit bull, Boerbull, assimilated Mastiff, assimilated Tosa) and others must imperatively wear a muzzle (Tosa, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Rottweiler and assimilated).

Generally speaking, dogs can cope well with train journeys, a means of locomotion that is not very noisy, stable and air-conditioned. Cases of motion sickness are extremely rare. However, avoid feeding him just before departure, and make him do a "pee break" beforehand! Also provide a bottle of water and a bowl, knowing beforehand what the dog can drink before "soublier". For the comfort of all, we will take care to calm his dog if he moans, if he is nervous ... Sometimes a little sedative or a little hug can help make you spend (and him too) a good trip.
