Purchasing a dog from abroad and the Export procedures:
Steps on purchasing a DelPicasso puppy or young dog from abroad
Complete a puppy booking form
Get a travel quote from Tanya Lubbe (Our Animal travel agent) We only export via our travel agent, Tanya Lubbe from
Petswannatravel. I do NOT do state vet clearances etc. If you are not prepared to use the assistance of our agent, then you need to do all paperwork by yourself, whick is a huge risk. If your paperwork is incorrect, your puppy can be refused on the plane, or even be euthanised in the new country!
Once you are happy with the choice of puppy and you accept the travel quote, you need to return your puppy booking form as well as proof of 50% deposit paid for the puppy.
We will make sure that all necessary vaccinations were done in time for the export. For EU countries, the export process is a bit time consuming as we need to do a Rabies vaccination at 3 months of age. Then 30 days after the Rabies vaccination was done, we need to draw blood to get the Rabies Neutralising Antibody Titre test done. It can take up to 4 weeks to get results. The results must show an Antibody titre of 0,5 IU/ml or more. If less than that, we need to do another Rabies vaccination, and repeat the entire process.
Once the Rabies Titre test was passed (For EU Countries) – the dog needs to stay in the RSA for 90 days waiting period. You can write a letter to your Official department that handles the import to request that the 90 days waiting period must be done as Home quarantine. If they agree in writing your puppy can fly immediately, if not, the puppy will depart once the 90-day period had lapsed.
Pay the balance outstanding on your puppy and arrange with Petswannatravel for the flight costs etc. Pay Petswannatravel separately for the flight. Once all outstanding monies were received the puppy will depart, after vet clearance and health certificate is done.
Extremely important - Please note the following:
