Understanding Dog Importation

Finding and developing a great repour with a CKC member breeder is well worth the time and effort. Member breeders spend a great deal of time planning their breeding programs. In fact, many accountable breeders use sires and dams from outside of Canada to help strengthen and improve the genetic diversity in their breed—especially if it is a rare or less common breed. If your breeder used a dam or sire from outside of Canada, or if the puppies are being imported to Canada, find out why your puppy is being imported. Asking questions is a great way to get to know your breeder and shows that you are doing your part to find an accountable breeder.
The CFIA website is a valuable resource for information regarding travelling and importing pets. We suggest reviewing “Bringing animals to Canada: Importing and travelling with pets” . It is important to know the specific rules and import requirements before considering importing a dog from another country. It is key to ask questions to find out where your dog is really coming from. The import requirements Canada has in place are crucial to evading the introduction of new animal diseases into the country. This not only protects our animals, but also the people and plants in our country.
CFIA’s mandate is to assist in the healthy and humane transportation of dogs and all animals into Canada. Importers are responsible for ensuring the health of the animals in their care and must also be aware of the required documentation and follow all relevant import requirements before entering or re-entering the country.
