Only trained and registered Assistance & Service Dogs are permitted on Eurostar train services between London and EU destinations, and unfortunately, this is also the case for Eurostar services in mainland Europe. No other animals are allowed to travel on the Eurostar trains, including Emotional Support Animals (ESAs), as they are not trained to perform a specific task for their owner. You can check out reviews for Eurostar trains for those who’ve travelled with an Assistance or Service Dog. To travel in Europe with your cat or dog, European Sleeper has some exciting new options between London and Berlin for 2023, as well as a new route between Germany, Holland and Belgium. Otherwise, you may decide to choose from the pet friendly airlines that transport your pet in the cabin or hold, or one of the pet couriers that offer specialised animal travel.

Assistance & Service Dogs on Eurostar EU Trains
For your dog to travel under the Eurostar Assistance & Service Dog policy, they must have been trained by an organisation that’s either a member, or affiliated with, one of the following:
- Assistance Dogs (UK)
- The International Guide Dog Federation
- Assistance Dogs International
Permitted Eurostar Routes for Assistance & Service Dogs
Registered Assistance & Service Dogs are welcome on these Eurostar routes.
In the UK:
St Pancras International
On the Continent:
Paris Gare du Nord
For safety reasons, only four Assistance or Service Dogs can travel on each Eurostar train. So, remember to let Eurostar know at the time of booking that your Guide or Assistance Dog is travelling too, to ensure there is enough space. In any case, Assistance Dogs must be booked at least 48 hours in advance to be permitted to travel on a Eurostar service.
Always protect your dog against vector-borne diseases in a foreign country, and remember to leave a review if you have travelled on the Eurostar with your Assistance or Service Dog!
