The rabies vaccination certificate is probably a precaution to prevent the spread of rabies, and if there is no rabies outbreak they won't bother about it, however if there is a rabies outbreak where you are coming from they will get very interested in it.

As rabies in winter is practically unknown, I predict a smooth crossing

May also need the rabies vaccination certificate in case of your dog biting someone, a pet or getting bitten.

Also some campgrounds in the US say you need it in their rules.

When we went over in September we carried all the records from our vet for the last 2 years. At the border crossing (Couts, north of Great Falls) the border agent asked for our passports and for Rachel's (our dog companion) papers. We crossed with no problem. If you are concerned you could stop at a vet anywhere close to the border, show your records and provide contact information for your vet to get an "updated" record.

What is prohibited - going from US to Canada

You'll face a higher responsibility on reentering as a citizen to the US. An hour before us, friends breezed through Sault Ste. Marie into Michigan last September. Us? On a random sampling I'm thinking, we got the 3rd degree about a mix of fresh fruits/vegs -- nothing different from what our friends had. It sounded stern but it was still a well explained advisory about US rules. More specifically, they had us leave our dogs in the truck, unlock the trailer and we had to go into a building and leave everything to them. I'm sure we were under observation. Main advice here - stay cool. Or else they'd have really pulled us apart (still would have found nothing however).

Hi, after you posted this information and after my post, we went to Alaska; I was corrected by a few Border Guards. No guns, except for with a special permit for hunting guns. No excessive amounts of Money or Alcohol. No pepper spray, But it is OK to bring Bear Spray.
