Denton,
I may be missing the point here but...

I assume that your wife's assistance dog still has to have a Pet Passport and that the Rabies jab is up to date. In which case it's the same procedure as for any other dog - you just need to get the passport stamped by a vet to confirm that worming treatment has been administered and this has to be done between 24 and 120 hours prior to check in.

With Eurotunnel the dog stays with you at all times so I suspect that there is not an issue.

Don't forget that Keith Chesterfield has put together a great list of European vets here

Hi there,
We have crossed a few times now and our assistance dog is recognised by the authorities on both sides but as Bill States above all dogs have to go through the usual passport control etc.
We've never had any problems.
