Dogs can be taken on all French trains. Larger dogs muzzled and on leads pay half of the 2nd class full fare, even travelling in the same compartment as a larger dog. For more information, see the French Railways website.

Can you bring dogs on trains?
Keep your dog on a lead throughout your journey. Enclosed pet carriers or crates must be used for dogs not on a lead. The dog needs to be able to stand and lie down in comfort and the pet carrier needs to be rigid and not open.
Dogs are not allowed to stay in a carrier for more than 30 minutes at a time. Do not leave your pet unattended in a car, truck, van, boat, or other vehicle. If you do, you may be charged with a misdemeanor and face fines of up to $1,000 and/or jail time if you are found guilty.
What trains allow dogs in Europe?
Your pet can travel with you on most trains in Europe including Rail Europe (except trains in Spain, Ireland, Great Britain, Finland and Norway) and RailJet. Service dogs are only allowed on the ICE and TGV trains. If your pet is a service dog, you will need to show your dog’s ID card when boarding the train. If you have any questions, please contact your train operator.
Does Eurostar accept dogs?
We allow four dogs on each train and you can choose to travel at almost any time. You can’t travel on a train that arrives in the UK after the last train leaves the UK. You have to book your guide or assistance dogs tickets in advance. The cost of a dog guide ticket depends on the length of your journey and the number of dogs you wish to accompany you.
For example, if you are travelling from London to Edinburgh, the cost is £60 for a one-way ticket. If you want to take your dog with you for the whole journey, then you will need to buy a longer ticket, which will cost you an additional £40. The price of the longer journey ticket will depend on how far you travel, as well as the distance between the two cities.
Dogs travelling alone are charged the same price as a single dog, regardless of how many dogs they travel with.
How do I calm my dog down on a train?
If your dog settles down on the blanket, you can reward him with small bite-size treats. Don’t talk to your dog while doing this. Reward more relaxed dogs with larger treats as they get used to it. You can also use a toy to distract your pet while you are training.
How do you transport a dog on a train?
Pets are not allowed on the train in any class. However, dogs on train can be carried by brake or luggage van. If you want your pet to be allowed on the train, you need to contact the Parcel office at least two days before.
Do you have to pay to take a dog on the train?
Dogs, cats, and other small animals are free of charge if they are not larger than a small dog or cat, as long as they do not exceed the size of a small dog or cat. Pets must be kept on a leash at all times and must not be left unattended in the train car or on the platform. Pets are not permitted in any of the carriages or platforms.
Pet owners are responsible for the care of their pets and are expected to provide them with adequate food, water and shelter. All pets must have a current rabies vaccination and be spayed or neutered prior to being transported by train. If a pet is found to be unvaccinated or unneutered, the owner will be required to pay a $25.00 fee to have the pet vaccinated.
The fee is non-refundable and may be applied towards the cost of any additional vaccinations required by the animal’s owner. Any pet that is not vaccinated or has not received the required vaccinations within 30 days from the date of transport is considered a stray animal and will require a fee of $15.50 to transport. This fee does not apply to dogs or cats that have been adopted from a shelter or rescue organization.
How do you travel with a dog?
Though rules vary from airline to airline, your dog can typically only fly in the cabin—a.k.a. as a carry-on—if they are small enough to fit in a carrier under the seat in front of you.
Your pup will have to travel in the cargo hold with the rest of your luggage if it is larger than that. If you’re traveling with a large dog, you’ll want to check with your airline before you book your trip to make sure that your pet is allowed to fly.
Can you take dogs to France from UK?
Taking pets from the UK to France is pretty straightforward. You will need to obtain an animal health certificate. This involves getting your dog, cat, or ferretvaccinated at an approved vet clinic. If you are planning to bring your pet into France, it is important to make sure you have the correct paperwork in place before you leave. If you don’t, you could find yourself in trouble with the French authorities.
