Don't trust any internet forum when dealing with Canada Border Services Agency. Go right to the source. What you can and can't bring into Canada - it's all there on the website. Should you have further questions, you can phone them, but be prepared to hear everything in English, then French; yeah, it's frustrating.

Before there was the internet, we just crossed the border several times a year without issue. The worst that ever happened was we got our fruit and veggies confiscated.

Enjoy your trip.
I'm very well aware of Canadian firearm regulations, being from a border area Buffalo, NY. Yes a long gun is admissible BUT you must be able to prove that you're bringing it in for a reason like a Hunting trip or some other very significant reason and be able to prove it. Save the misinformation statement for someone who doesn't know the law!

Yes it's frustrating, if they could only do it in French it would save me some time

If you phone the border crossing you are planning to go through, you will be given the choice of English or French, not both.

You said, "Canada is NOT firearm friendly like the US". That's editorializing and has nothing to do with our regulations. Like I said, misinformation.

Editorializing? Ok, you win!

Actually a heath certificate is only required if a dog is flying.

All you need for the dog when driving is a copy of the rabies vaccination certificate. The odds of being asked are low but having done many trips it does happen. Also note that the dog food must be in the bag and made in Canada or the USA and going into Canada the bag can be open but going back into the USA the bag must not be opened - strange but true. I know lots of folks who have had US customs take the open bag of dog food!

Going in both directions fire wood and plants are a no no. Lots of fruits and veggies are on the no no list as well so I never carry then across. Another current NO NO item which was previously ok is fresh eggs - again both directions.

Not always a great experience.

Hi, read "Bob, Lee, and Dusty's random trips" complete; You will find that we crossed the Canadian border many times and had a great time. But on our last cross country trip, we were not treated nicely. After hours of harassment by the Canadians, We asked them to show us where to make a "U" turn so we could go back to where we would be welcomed. After that ordeal, like Mexico, I have no desire to ever go back to Canada.

When we cross our dogs go with us. We carry shot records, Veterinarians health certificate and statement from Veterinarian as to breed. Pit Bulls and Pit mixes are generally not permitted into Ontario for example.

As for firearms, we carry them in per this link:

To clarify this. Robert was clearly attempting to bring an undocumented old sickly animal into Canada, in a brazen bid to take advantage of our universal free veterinary services. Once at the border, realizing the dog may not make it, and overcome with emotion, he attempted to blow through the border without stopping at the clearly indicated white line, which is akin to trying to run the US border while carrying Barium in your body.
These sort of shenanigans are not tolerated, and are delt with severity by the CBSA. Until Robert learns how to say "Sorry", which is a distinctly Canadian term, he is no longer invited to come and play with us.

Cheers
Tony

Coming home to the US has always been more problematic for us. We've had the trailer searched and had orange rinds from the bottom of our garbage pail confiscated. But it makes for a good story.

You'd be surprised what records are kept by both borders. In 2013 we crossed from Maine into New Brunswick for a trip to Nova Scotia. At the border into Canada the agent even asked if she could give our dog a biscuit, very pleasant crossing, not unusual. While in Nova Scotia our seven year old Lab Mix got sick and died within three four hours with a very good and caring local Vet working on her. We were devastated. Stayed a bit and then decided to head home. We crossed back into Maine at a different crossing and the US border patrol agent asked if she could look into our AS for smuggled people, she did and while she and I were in their she stated "where is the dog you crossed into Canada with". I told her, she cried and apologized for delaying our trip and we moved on, but still surprised that one they kept a computer record of her crossing and two that the agent notice without asking a dog was missing.

As an aside we stayed in the Springfield, MA KOA and they too asked about our dog, I told the two young girls working behind the counter, they too cried and we were never charged for the stay.
