The Germans love, love, love dogs. So if you’re moving to Germany and your family includes a canine, you’ll be in good company. Don’t feel slighted if you’re a cat person, though – felines are also well-loved. But first things first. You and your pet have to get there.
Germany isn’t the largest country in the world, but it is quite diverse geographically. You and your dog will have no shortage of sights to see and smells to sniff. But it’s good to remember that, while summers are mostly mild in Germany, it can get very snowy and cold in winter. So, whether you head out on the trail for a hike or down the street to the local biergarten for a brew, you will want to be properly prepared for the weather.
