  • How to enter Sweden.
    If you want to enter Sweden, with your dog, you have to prepare for that a long time in advance.

    Distemper vaccination
    Participating dog in shows must have been vaccinated against distemper in accordance with the following:
    Dog under 1 year: vaccinated when no younger than 10 weeks old.
    Dog over 1 year: vaccinated when no younger than one year old, with the most recent subsequent vaccination having been carried out within the past 4 years. First-time vaccinations must have been carried out at least 14 days before the day of competition.

    Parvo vaccination
    It is r
    ecommended that the dog has been vaccinated against parvo. It is also recommended that the dog has been vaccinated against kennel cough.

    Rabies vaccination
    Sweden is a rabies-free country, and it is, therefore, important that all dogs imported into the country are vaccinated against this disease.

    Tapeworm (Echinococcus) can cause serious illness in humans and dogs. Tapeworm carried by foxes can be spread by dogs to humans via wild berries or mushrooms.
    If tapeworm carried by foxes spreads to Sweden it may threaten Swedish open-air recreation and the opportunity for people to enjoy berries and mushrooms picked in the countryside. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that dogs are dewormed before they are brought into Sweden.

    NB! The vaccination requirements for the import of dogs to Sweden are more stringent than the vaccination regulations for shows.
