As I mentioned before, home quarantine never seems to be checked. We had a large piece of fenced land with a small house (rented). No one ever came to check before we moved there or indeed after we moved there. In fact, we moved house to our permanent home after 3 months! And still no one checked. But I suppose it is always a risk. If you are walking your dogs anywhere on the island, always make sure they don't eat anything they find, even grass outside of the garden which could accidentally have some insecticde/poison on it.

this would be the exact type of property I would look for. I found a few websites that might be of help- do you have any advice as to thru whom I should look for longterm rental property in the Larnaca or close to Larnaca area??

Sorry for the delay in replying, with christmas and new year it has been a bit hectic. There are some lovely villages around where I live which is about 25 mins drive from Larnaca airport. It may be an idea to visit for a couple of weeks and see classified sections of Cyprus Weekly and Cyprus Mail which give long listings of rented accommodation. You may find a web site for Anthony Loizou Estate Agents (a friend of mine works for them) or search the internet for Estate Agents / Real Estate / Rental. There are a lot of companies that rent out and private rentals too. Another friend of mine may be able to help: Eddie of Alexander Properties: email alexproperties@cytanet.com.cy / www.alex-properties.com - Good Luck!

Anne- (I assumed this is your name from your username- hope I'm not mistaken)
Again HUGE thanks for your response- these are great tips and exactly what I needed. I don't know if it is too early to start looking if I only intend to move around Sep.- but I will drop an email to your friend to see. I will make the trip after I have lined up some properties to look at and while there will certainly check the local papers as you suggested.
It just dawned on me that if my pets are confined to home quarantine I might not be able to put them up at a Pension during my trips- unless the Pension counts as an extension of the home quarantine- as they are enclosed etc.... I know you said that they are pretty lax about checking- but with my luck they will...
Happy holidays to you too and again thanks for all of your help (have actually printed out our correspodence just to make sure I don't lose any of the information and advice you've provided)

Liat, forgive my ignorance here, is Liat a male or female name?!
Also, by Pension, I presume you mean kennels? If it is the kennels, I would suggest that the actual kennels, in particular somewhere like Happy Valley Kennels, would be able to advise you on whether they would be able to leave their "home quarantine" for kennels.
Keep in touch, would like to know how you get on. Anne

Surely the whole notion of quarantine is to avoid contact with other animals, including not sharing exercise space? Ordinary boarding kennels would not come under this definition. I have seen quarantine kennels only once and each animal had his own isolated run, with a 1½ metre gap between the runs.

Anne-
Liat is a female name. It is actually in Hebrew Li- means for me, to me,- possesive, and at- means you... the name basically means "you're mine" (very possesive parents).
By pension I do mean kennel (in Hebrew it's called "pension")- and I will get in touch with the one you reccomended.
I went ahead and emailed your friend Eddie and he wrote back to say that it's still early to begin looking for a place, but that he would be happy to help when the time comes.
Again many thanks for all of your help. Of course I will stay in touch!- You and "Devil" are the only people I know in Cyprus!!!
Take care
Liat
ps- in case you feel like emailing me I can be reached at: liat@slann.com



Devil:
What you say makes sense. I know that here in Israel the Kennals are built so that each dog has an individual cell, and they rotate letting each dog run free a few hours a day each in a seperate yard- if it is the same over there then perhaps it won't be an issue.

Hello all

Just a quickie, my family and i are moving to cyprus and are planning to bring our samoyed,

i have looked at the responces posted on the site and am slightly worried not due to the Poisions

(i already know of this as my cousins Mastiff was a recipent to this Horror)

i would like to know about Oasis kennels and Happy Valley, and as we understand it there is no longer the 6 Month quarentine rule??

(we have been issued papers that state the dog will only require his pssport and injections)

is this true :?:

What country is your dog coming from? This must include intermediate stopovers of the plane(s) carrying him. Quarantine regulations still exist for many countries of origin or transit.
