Tips to Travel in Train with Your Pet Dog

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras

Pet dogs are an inseparable part of our lives. They are the most loyal friends a person can have. We do not leave any effort to care and pamper for our pet dog in the normal life. But a dilemma ushers in when you have to travel with family. Most people would love to carry their pets along with them, but is that a feasible option when you are travelling in Indian Railways? There is no clear information in this regard. The more you read the Indian Railways rules and regulations, more you get confused. So, we thought of clearing the air for you.

Can you take dogs with you in a train?

Yes, you can, of course, carry the dogs with you when travelling. But this travel will be subject to some rules and regulations set by the Indian railways. Dogs can be kept close, in the compartment, only when you are travelling by First Class AC. In other instances, they will be held as a luggage and travel in the Brake or Luggage Van. Even when you carry the dog in a train compartment, you have to make sure that the dog does not cause any nuisance. While carrying the dog in a train compartment you need the consent of fellow passengers.

Tips for Taking Your Dog in a Train

Dog boxes in brakevan

  • If you want to take the dog with you in the train compartment then book tickets in First AC class only. You may have to reserve two or four berths in the compartment for your use, by paying the due charges based on the type of train you are travelling by.
  • If you are travelling in any other class then you cannot take the dog along with you in the train’s compartment. But the dog can be carried in the Luggage or Brake Van paying the due charges. There are specially designed Dog Boxes available in the Brake Vans for such purposes.
  • If you want to carry your dog in the Luggage Van, then contact the Parcel Office and book for your dog two days before the commencement of journey.
  • If you are detected carrying a dog without due booking in an AC First Class or Brake Van you will be charged at Luggage Rates based on the weight of the dog and have to pay a minimum fine of Rs. 10 per dog. These charges are prepaid in nature.
  • In case the dog is the “Seeing Eye” of a blind person, the tariff charged will be same as dogs carried in the brake van, though they remain within the compartment. However, the dogs must have Collars and Chains fitted for such travel.
  • It is the responsibility of the owner to arrange for food and water along the course of the journey.
  • Even when you carry the dog along with you in a First Class AC compartment you will need the consent of fellow passengers. If at any point of the journey, the fellow passengers object to the dog remaining in the compartment, the animal will be immediately removed to the Guard’s van and no refund will be provided.
  • Dogs cannot be carried in the compartment when you are travelling in AC Sleeper coaches, AC chair car or second class coaches.
  • If the dog is found breaching any set of rules it will be removed immediately to the brake van and charges complying six times of the Luggage Scale Rate will be subjected to the passengers.

Is travelling in trains really safe for Dogs?

So, you can definitely carry a dog with you if all these Indian Railways regulations are adhered to. But as a pet lover, you want to know about the safety of your beloved pet. Let us be frank, the conditions of Dog Boxes are not great. They are kept in a separate compartment. These small boxes with iron shutters have cramped spaces. Apart from this, the coach where these boxes are kept obviously do not have any air conditioner to regulate the temperature. “I have known many dogs that have not made it to the end of the journey because of excess heat, dehydration and fright. I myself brought my dog in these horrible conditions in Bombay Mail because I wasn’t aware of how bad the condition is.” says Ina D’Souza, RailYatri app user. So, travelling with dogs is not the best option, especially if you cannot accommodate the dog within your compartment.

    We had once carried our white Pomeranian dog in the luggage compartment of a train while shifting our house. We found the experience not exactly pleasent because of the following:
    1. Railways doesn’t give any guarantee that your dog will reach alive at the destination.
    2. Our white dog became a black dog when we reahced the destination. It was covered in flith and what not.
    3. The kennel in the luggage van in which the dog was put is iron whole around. The heat during day time is terrible in India. Our dog was severely dehydrated by the time it reached the destination.
    So, if you love your mutt, do not put it in the luggage van of the train. Book a first class AC ticket as advised above.

      Alas! is it not a case against Indian Railways for ‘Cruelty Against Animals’?
      In case I wish to transport my puppy from Bangalore to Trivandrum as accompanying luggage in the train (2-AC), there should be an alternative arrangement in the compartment itself (outside AC) to prevent the poor puppy from its death and to avoid wastage of my money and my disappointment.

    Hi,

    I will be returning from Kolkata to New Delhi with a three-week old puppy. I don’t think such a puppy can be left in luggage because it requires constant care.

    Will be traveling 2 AC.

    How do I travel then?

      Never leave them in Luggage or Brake compartment as our railways dont care about animals life, the cage is very dirty and very hot due to near to the engine and the dogs get easily suffocated. i lost my pug due to this and now i regret for that decision of not taking him in 1st class.
      Railways dont have any good facilities for animals. Please dont take the risk.

      don’t ever travel with your dog in indian railways and if you do never do it in dog box and brake van. I took my 4 years rottweiler with me, he travelled in the dog box. It was so messy. However, we cleaned it but after Jamshedpur and those Jharkhand areas the guard didn’t allow us to look after him. And because of him, the guard, my dog became sick and finally left all of us.

      If you’re travelling in a 2A coach, by rules and regulations you can’t take but it depends on the fellow passengers how they will react to it, if they’ll give you consent then you will have a plus point.

    Hi,
    How do I make sure when I book 2 tickets that I am booking a 2 people coupe and not a 4 people coach in 1st AC? I am a lady travelling with my dog. Also the prepaid charges for my dog need to be paid at the time of booking your ticket or immediately before travel? Please help me out.

    Thank you.

    Hey.. All,

    I can relate to your queries in every way. Take your dog in coupe for 2 people in 1 st class ac.. ! This actually worked well for me. Yes it is matter of luck as well, whether we get the 2 people coupe but obviously it is better than leaving the pet in the van

    Dear All

    I would like to take my pet ( German Spitz 7 years old) from Jamshedpur to Kolkata. Will it be a good choice to travel by hired AC Van/ Car rather than travel by train. (It takes 4 to 4.5 hrs from Tata to Howrah by train) . The car journey takes a minimum of 6-7 hours.

    Thanks.

    @ Vijayeeta

    Once you have confirmed tickets in 1AC, write a letter to the station master (generally one day in advance giving your PNR details etc) requesting them to allot a coupe for 2 people mentioning that you would be travelling with your pet. They generally allot a coupe for 2 or 4 depending on our request. On the date of travel take your pet to the railway station along atleast one hour in advance and contact the parcel office and pay the necessary charges by filling up a form which would be given by them once you tell them about your pet travel. and also carry a copy of your confirmed ticket along with the vaccination record of your pet and a mouth guard ( as some staff at railways might insist on putting a guard until you board the train and are in the privacy of your coupe.)

    Though the whole process looks a bit cumbersome, it’s worth it as our pet child gets to travel with us in a coupe. We have travelled with our pet this way many times till now and once you get a grip of things the first couple of times, it becomes easier later on.

    Good luck!!..hope your doubts are clarified.

    I had a nice experience recently. My wife was going to Chennai for business purpose and we’re worried about our puggy, who will be very gloomy without her. And she is going for 1 month training and we are sure that its impossible for him to stay alone these days without her. So we thought to get him as well to Chennai. I booked a first class ticket in Trivandrum Chennai Duronto Express and took him to Parcel office to buy his tickets. They charged 450 Rs for him, for a nights travel, though its plenty, we are happy that it served the purpose. Greeted by TTE at coach, and they were so helpful that they alloacted her berth in a two bedded coupe. And I am totally worried that she is travelling single, but by Gods grace, everything went fine and good. Both of them had nice time at train. Thank You Indian Railways. Thanks God.

    Hi Guys,

    I can’t tell you how comforting it is to see this blog. I am taking Heidi on a Rajdhani Delhi to Bangalore on 2nd July. I have already given the application to the CCR at Baroda house as instructed by someone. Can I take my pooch 2 days in advance to the parcel office and pay for her and give the application at the charting office too. Can someone elaborate the process in detail such as how many days in advance can the parcel be paid. Who all should the application be given to. How do we make sure we get the 2 berth coupe. I am travelling with my Mom and Pooch and this is the first time I am doing so. Any help I can get will be valuable.

    Guys especially those who are planning to travel with younger pups… Please don’t prefer indian railways!!! I almost my three month old Labrador. By the end of the journey he got so tired, and fully covered with filth. Finally I decided to travel with him in the breakvan.. The cages are not cleaned properly & my guy got attacked by Parvo virus soon after the journey.. Had to spend a lot of time and effort to save him!!! So my suggestion, search for better option.

    Indian Railway is utter failure in taking care of it’s passengers , how is saying, your pet would be cared.

    Comment
  19. DXiljith

    Hi Vilas,

    Any train b/w Mumbai and Delhi with First AC is permitted for Pets travel. All you have to do is, book your 1st AC ticket and opt for Coupe. Same day, write a letter to Chief Reservation Officer of Station stating, you and your pets are travelling, so please allocate a coupe instead of cabin. Then on the travel date, reach minimum 1 hr before departure, visit Parcel counter, show your pet in a carriage box, take tickets for him/her. Then go to your berth. If Chief Reservation Officer is kind enough to give you berth…hallelujah, take your pets out of crate n u guys enjoy the travel.

    We two are travelling and booked 1st AC TICKET for us & requested for Coupe, to carry my pet Pomeranian breed from Mumbai to Kerala. I have some query to be cleared, anyone can help me.

    1. Is any 1st AC ticket to take for my pet also?
    2. Is cage compulsory while travel or can i take the pet as it is?

    Any of your suggestions and advise will help me the last minute chaos, please help me

    Comment
    1. DXiljith

      Hi Simon,

      First thing you have to do is, go to train’s boarding station and meet Chief Reservation Officer and hand him your application letter stating you and your wife along with your pet is travelling, so allocate a cabin while charting the list.
      Majority cases, if no VIPs were travelling in the train that day, they will accept your request and will give you a cabin.

      Second thing you have to do is, reach the boarding station minimum 2 hours before departure and walk with your pet to the parcel office and show them your journey ticket and doggy. They will charge you and give a chalan. Now you can board train with total relief. When TTE comes, show him this chalan and I guarantee you, will have a great time.

      And question about cage is a tricky one, frankly speaking No is the answer. But if your pom is small and manageable in a crate, it is recommended because we are not sure about other fellow passengers. just to please them..thats it

          You’re welcome Simon. Just to update, I’ve miswritten cabin instead of Coupe. If I am not wrong, coupe is 2 berth and cabin is 4 berth. So with pets, request for 2 berth coupe.

    I am fine with booking 2 seats in a coupe of Ac first class, but how to book for my dog? I am not seeing any option in irctc portal to book a dog. Has anyone in this forum traveled with a dog accompanying them in AC first class coupe? If yes, kindly let me know the process. I am interested to know below points

    1. How to book ticket for my dog? Online / from originating station / somewhere else?

    2. What all documents necessary for carrying my dog in AC first class coupe?

    3. I see a charge to be paid as per scale, where do i need to take him and how early of date of travel to weigh as per scale?

    4.. During journey where can I take him for toilet / potty ?

    thanks in advance

    Comment
    1. DXiljith

      Hi Subhajit,

      Please be informed you can’t book your dog’s ticket online.
      What you have to do is, book first AC cabin tickets for you, cabin or coupe, I am not sure -anything just two berths – book that.

      Next thing you have to do is, go and meet the Chief Reservation Officer your boarding station. Hand him a written letter stating, you are travelling with a dog, so to avoid discomfort for other fellow passengers, grant you a two berth coupe or cabin.
      Majority cases, they will approve your request.

      Next what you have to do is, on the day of journey reach an hour before boarding time. Take your dog to Parcel Counter of boarding station, show them your ticket and pooch, they will give you a challan – that’s the ticket for your dog.

      In rare cases, the guy at parcel counter may ask your dog’s fitness certificate. so to avoid last minute anxieties, get a fitness certificate for your dog from an approved vet stating your DOG IS FIT TO TRAVEL.

      You can take your dog to common toilets, but make sure it is cleaned after usage.

      Still got any confusions, call me at 8807031321.

      Wishing you and your pooch all the good luck.

      Have a safe n happy journey!

    I need to carry my Labrador, 16 yrs old, by train on route which does not have first class bogie. My travel is unavoidable. Is it utterly impossible to carry him in the brake van? Can we carry him with us in the compartment? Money can make anything happen, so maybe the guard with some bribe can allow him. But has anyone done it before?

    Alway better to Travel in First class A/c, If you are two guys, you must book Coupe ticket, if you guys are 4 you must book Cabin, While booking the train ticket online, you will not have any option, to buy ticket for your pet, but you have options to select Cupe or Cabin. On the Day of travel go to railway parcel office at least 2 hrs before your train departs, show your train tickets and also Dog, along wit the travel fitness certificate(From the Veterinary Doctor). Then you are ready to go.

    I am experienced in this. My fully grown Rottweiler was to be moved from Kolkata to Delhi. All you have to do is book A/c first class ticket. Now a/c first class has coupe which has 2 or 4 seats. So you have to get the coupe reserved for yourself by getting 2 or 4 tickets. If you dont do that and just book 1 ticket other passengers in your coupe might object it and before that you need to get a consent or no objection form filled by them which is of no gaurantee. So best is book yourself 2 tickets for a coupe which has 2 seats and travel along with your dog comfortably.
