Hi, we always take our Rottweiller with us to France and Spain, no problems with the ferry company's although they always ask me to
run the scanner over him for chip ID and customs seem to always
want me to take him out of the motorhome to do a token seach.
Perhaps they think he is guarding something we shouldn't have.
France and Spain have some very strict laws as I understand it,
in both country's the dog has to be muzzled and on a 1 metre lead
in any public place, in general we have been told they are a disliked breed and we have had people stare, point and even crane their
neck out of cafe windows when we walk by.
Like a few people we met with a Rotty, we would let him off the lead to run
when there was no one about, as someone told us they have a lot of laws
there and most people bend them!
We met lots of motorhomers on our 5 month winter trip, quite a few would not leave the M/H together even to go shopping, what we used to
do when we stopped epecially in supermarkets was walk him around
first then put him back in, never had any problems.
Hope this is helpful.
