Oslo - March 2012

Fritz’s first international trip was to Norway in March 2012, when he was just two and a half months old.  There are no controls on (most) pets between Sweden and Norway so he didn’t need a passport or to have his vaccinations completed – although the customs dog on the train was very interested in his food! Also we were on the Swedish rail service to Oslo and you do have to book ahead and book into a carriage and seat designated for dogs.    Fritz slept most of the way.

Oslo is great, with plenty of parks.  We walked around Slottsparken (The Royal Palace Park) and also Aker Brygge – a shopping/eating/meeting place at the harbour. I would also highly recommend Frognerparken, which has plenty of play space and famous sculptures.

The downside is that Oslo restaurants are not that dog friendly.  Aker Brygge is an excellent choice if the weather is nice and there is outside seating.

Note: as of January 1st, 2012 there are new rules about entering Norway with an dog older than three months, even from Sweden.
