TRAVELLING WITH PET: CAN I TAKE MY DOG ON A TRAIN?

At the Slovenske železnice, they wrote:

“Passengers can transport small domestic animals, housed in cages, baskets or other types of pet carriers that can be stored the same way as the passenger’s luggage, as well as small dogs that can sit on a passenger’s lap.

Large dogs travelling on trains are required to wear a muzzle, be kept on a short lead and sit or lie on the floor. Large dogs travel at a half 2nd class fare in domestic traffic and a half-fare according to the international tariff on international routes.

Upon boarding the train carriage, passengers accompanied by large dogs must obtain consent from their fellow passengers. If your fellow passengers do not consent to the presence of your pet, then you should contact the train conductor or a member of the rail staff on board who will take care of the animal for the duration of the journey.”
