The French Connection

At the beginning of this year we already announced that we were asked to conquer the French market for DOG Copenhagen. We have received so much positive feedback about our assortment that we will now also include EQDOG, EQuest 4dogs and Owney Outdoor. While preparing for this new area we came across the 3 most important rules for four-legged friends in France – handy for customers with holiday plans and if you yourself have a romantic weekend planned in Paris (of course with your dog).

  1. Identify your dog
    As of July 3rd, 2004, certain rules apply within the European Union if you travel with your dog. For example, you must have a European pet passport. Since the 29th of April 2014, there is a new EU Pet Passport that only a veterinarian can provide for you, only after entering the correct data and laminating the relevant pages. Old passports issued and completed before that date will remain valid. In addition, you must also ensure that your dog is ‘chipped’. This way your dog can always be identified.
  2. Proper vaccination
    When traveling through Europe, your dog must also have a valid rabies vaccination. You should also get a dog-tag for that on the collar/harness. You must obtain the rabies vaccination up to 21 days before departure and this may not be older than one year if you cross EU borders. Dogs that are less than 3 months old cannot be vaccinated against rabies yet, so they are not allowed to enter France.
  3. Leave the tough dog at home
    France prefers fighting and guard dogs to leave rather than enter their country. That is why they apply strict rules for taking these “tough” dogs with you. This concerns certain crossbreeds that are not registered in a pedigree that is recognized by the French Ministry of Agriculture. In appearance they resemble:
  • Pitbulls and crossbreeds with American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Boerbulls and crossbreeds with the Mastiff
  • Crossbreeds with the Tosa

Do you want to take these dogs with you? Then you must comply with all kinds of rules. For example, with a special French course where you must prove that you have your dog under control and get a positive result on a bite test that your dog undergo in France.

You can find more information and links to all the rules in France on this Dutch website by the central government.O

Celebrate spring with classic colors!

In January, the new DOG Copenhagen collection was launched. There was a real rush, which meant that the Danish brand could not keep up with the requests. Those inventory problems will be resolved mid-March. To soften the wait a bit you can look forward to two new classic colors for spring.

Popular & growing brand
At the beginning of this year DOG Copenhagen launched a new collection with 6 new, fresh colors for the Comfort Walk Air dog harness, the Urban Freestyle dog leash and the Urban Style collar. These new colors were so popular that the stock of most sizes was sold out in a short time. We’re happy that the product proves to be a succes, but it’s never nice to wait for new stock. That waiting is now rewarded with two new colors for the entire DOG Copenhagen collection:
• Classic Red
• Hunting Green

Make a note: order the new colors
DOG Copenhagen is a young Danish brand that likes to distinguish itself with innovative and stylish products for quality-conscious dog owners. This has been achieved with the two new colors. Until now, red and green were not yet represented in the color palette of DOG Copenhagen, which will now have a total of 8 colors:
• Black
• Mocca
• Ocean Blue
• Orange Sun
• Purple Passion
• Wild Rose
• Classic Red *
• Hunting Green *

*These two new colors from DOG Copenhagen will be available from Mid March 2019.
