Everyone who is taking part in the Tobacco Trail race and/or bringing dogs to Sweden from other countries is responsible for adhering to the rules that apply.
Dog Passports & Vaccinations
- Dog passports for each individual dog are mandatory upon admission to Sweden (for dogs from countries other than Norway).
- All dogs coming from countries outside Sweden and Norway must be vaccinated against Rabies (at least 21 days before travel). Depending on vaccine manufacturers, basic vaccination may sometimes consist of two vaccinations at 3-4 week intervals. In that case, 21 days are counted after the second vaccination.
- In the case of other vaccinations, the dogs must be vaccinated against puppy diseases – DHPPi. The vaccination should be completed after 1 year and must not be older than 4 years. The vaccination must be done at least 14 days before the competition.
- It is recommended that participating dogs are also vaccinated against HCC (infectious hepatitis), parvovirus (dog pest), parainfluenza and Bordetella (kennel cough)
Please check the de-worming rules for the countries you will travel from/to.
Dogs must be a minimum of 18 months to participate in the competition.
Doping / medication
Doping of dogs and drivers is prohibited. Doping rules for dogs can be found in the National Doping Regulations, which you can find at www.skk.se. Applications for dispensation can be made to the Swedish Board of Agriculture (Jordbruksverket).
