    Hi
    We have now used eurotunnel twice to travel down to Almeria/spain with our 2 dogs .We have found the actual crossing excellant but the travelling both ways thru France has been a drag in winter.
    We have heard rumours that you can leave your dogs in the motorhome and visit and exercise them during the crossing,, is this so or do they stay in kennels without visits
    One of our dogs is 21 years old and we try to keep her stress free
    thanks
    Wandererer

    Jim I suspect there has been some translation errors in the copied section you have posted and it should read may NOT be carried in owners vehicles unless------????.

    My experience of the Sandtander crossing and a good look round the on board kennels would back that up
    the kennels are excellent and owners can visit and walk their dogs and cats at will any time,the very top deck is reserved for just this purpose
    Most took doggies favourite blankets and toys to place in the kennels, provision is made for larger animals in the form of double kennels, whereby some who had two dogs put them together
    Its a great way to travel to Spain and a great ship too:thumb:
    I will as always stand corrected, but with an argument of course:Rofl1:
    Ps from memory access to the vehicles was restricted by locked doors as usual

    Hi Geo
    No translation errors but I think you need to read the whole page to understand the context ..
