It used to be California was one of only two states that did not require imported dogs to be inspected and issued health certificates upon entry into the state. That will change when a new law goes into effect on January 1, 2015.
The bill AB 1809, sponsored by Assemblyman Brian Maienschein (R-San Diego), was just signed by Governor Jerry Brown. The law will require out-of-state animal dealers who sell dogs to California consumers or retailers to submit health certificates to county health departments
