I'm also curious to know if Buenos Aires is dog-friendly? My job will be in the city and I will be looking for an apartment nearby, but this means I will have to be able to take my dogs for walks quite often. Will having dogs make it more difficult for me to find an apartment? And are there any dog-friendly parks in the city?
Thank you for your help.
Buenos Aires is famous for its dog-loving culture. There are many dog-friendly parks and a few dog-walking services. That being said, landlords the world over aren't fans of our furry friends. You'll find that having pets will limit your pool of potential apartments.
When moving your pets you'll need (1) to have them microchipped (keep the record/certificate), a recent certificate to prove that they've recently had a rabies vaccination and (3) a certificate of health from a vet.
Once you have documents for the abovementioned procedures, send them to your local government vet, who will approve their authenticity.
There's a list of dog species that are banned from Argentina. Find the list on Google and make sure that your buddies aren't on that list.
Are you organising the move yourself?
It might be worthwhile enlisting the services of a relocation company. Expat Arrivals has a page on relocation companies in Argentina.
I hope this helps and many woofs to you.
