Do you own a pet or are planning on getting yourself an animal friend? If you live in Belgium you probably know the drill already, but if you’re about to move to the country with your pet you should know some rules apply and some actions need to be taken. For example, your pet must be identified with a microchip and has to be vaccinated against rabies. For further clarification on this and other important related topics, check this website
Belgium offers outstanding healthcare, education, and public facilities. Expats are attracted to the high living standards in this country: the community of expats in Belgium is almost a tenth of the country’s population.
There are three main regions in Belgium:
- Flanders – in this region in the north of Belgium people speak mostly Flemish, which is a dialect of the Dutch language. Even though it is not the biggest part of the country, over half of the country’s population lives here.
- Wallonia – this region is in the south of Belgium and people here speak mainly French but also German. Only 11% of the population lives here.
- Brussels – this is the capital of Belgium and where most of European Union’s major decision making centres are based. It’s officially recognised as bilingual.
Belgium’s rich history and beautiful art will make you fall in love with this country. On top on that, you can find in most places traditional food such as mussels and fries, waffles and great quality chocolate, and you’ll most likely find a great variety of Belgian beer across the country, especially in the big cities.
The whole country has very pretty buildings and landscapes to admire, and if you own a dog you'll find that, wherever you live in Belgium, you have beautiful surroundings where you can take him/her for a walk. If you feel like going for a longer trip, you might want to bring your four-legged friend to the dog-friendly beaches of West Flanders, for a walk in the High Fens, in Liège, or even for an exploring day at Rivierenhof Park, in Antwerp.
