the CFIA page, if i read it right, says that the certification is only necessary if the dog is NOT accompanied by the dog owner. i guess this means if the dog is being shipped?

so if i happen acquire a puppy on my trip to WA two weeks from now, that puppy will be owned by me at that point, and therefore will only require proof of rabies, if over the age of 3 months? if i drive across the border with MY pup, it is not being "shipped," but is accompanying me, right?

and i would imagine the price of the pup would be included in the rest of my goods that are being brought across? in BC i am allowed to bring back a certain monetary value of goods, tax free...depending on how long my trip is.

here we go:

Question 8: Do I have to accompany my pet dog?
No, you do not have to travel with your pet dog, it may be shipped separately. Note: When accompanying your dog, only a valid rabies vaccination is required, but if shipped separately, a dog of 8 months of age or less must be certified within the past 72 hours. The veterinary certificate of health must certify that the animal is not less than 6 weeks of age against distemper, parvovirus, parainfluenza and hepatitis. For a dog of 8 months or older, there is no difference whether accompanied or not.

Question 9: Will I be charged a fee to import my pet dog?
The CFIA charges a fee for the inspection of dogs and their accompanying certification entering Canada from countries other than the United States. (In certain cases, dogs and cats from the United States will be charged a fee for inspection e.g.: when requiring medical treatment.) The fees must be paid at the time of inspection and depend on whether vaccination is required at the port of entry. The fee is $30.00 + tax for the first animal and $5.00 + tax for each additional dog in the shipment (when the dog is already vaccinated).
If you choose to have the pet vaccinated in Canada the inspection fee will be $55.00 + tax, fees do not include vaccination against rabies.

I saw that part on $30 bucks of tax.. But I'm expecting they'll try to tax a dog the way they tax most things..? Endign up in possibly hundreds extra..

No, it won't be hundreds extra. I would budget $150.00 max - that is, depending upon what the purchase price of your dog is.

We brought Morrie, Gyp, and Zoey all over from the states, so it can be done. ... Sorry, don't have much more to say than that.
