Thanks, all, for the kudos on the website.
We haven't had any problem clearing into anywhere with our dog, except Grand Cayman where she was confined to the boat due to lack of a rabies titer test. We carry proof of rabies vaccination within one year and a certificate of health
. That's all. At Isla Mujeres, Mexico
, the department of agriculture came aboard to check things out and give us an official import
certificate, but usually the officials didn't even ask about pets
and didn't ask for paperwork when they saw the dog.
Ticks are a problem for dogs
certainly in Panama and probably most places in Central America
. If your dogs go for a run, be sure to check them carefully after, even if you're using flea and tick protection, which you should anyway.
BTW, Dave, we had an S2 9.2 center cockpit
in San Francisco
Bay. We really enjoyed that little boat. Your bigger S2 looks very nice too.
