5.4.18. How can we monitor dog movements?

Control of dog movements is important in maintaining freedom from rabies following control of dog rabies and to prevent reintroductions. Zoo-sanitary controls at border crossings and ports of entry (e.g. zoo-sanitary inspection points, police check-points, ranger posts, harbours and airports) and road checks, including checks on dogs and cats, need to be established. Regulations should be put in place regarding restrictions on dog movements and the zoo-sanitary requirements to move dogs. Laws and recommendations available for dog importation can be found here.
