Forums > Living in Kunming > Bringing a german shepherd service dog to kunming

Hello All,

I lived in Kunming for 2 years 2013-2015 and found it to be very dog friendly. I am considering moving back with my older service dog who will be retiring soon (she's a white lab mix, 85 lbs) and my smaller german shepherd male who is training to take over for her (56 lbs). He will get a little bigger than that, but not more than about 65lbs. I know that german shepherds are technically banned in kunming, would he be safe there or would I seriously risk having him taken away or hurt? From what I can gather, I can't imagine the police would take a foreigner's dog who is wearing a service dog vest unless he bit someone (which would never happen, both are incredibly friendly and well trained dogs being as they are service animals). Does anyone have any information for me about this? My Chinese friend thinks I'll be totally fine, but every city in China is a little different.

Thanks!

Happy kitchen on Wenlinjie is super good and delivers, and also slice of heaven is a really good deal.

Well shes in very good health, so I dont think the certificate of health will be an issue. Im getting one done just to be safe a few days before I go. I am not sure which airline I will fly from kunming to beijing because I want to make sure whichever one I take allows pets in cabin, I will know by tomorrow. I am flying nonrev via delta (standby as my father is a pilot for delta) from beijing to seattle, and then delta again from seattle to minneapolis. It sounds like their requirements are pretty minimal, so its mainly the chinese airline and inspections officials in beijing that I want to make sure I comply with as it seems I already have everything necessary for the american part of the trip.

The numbers for these places really need to be updated. All of them are disconnected and Itd be really nice to be able to get delivery once in awhile.

There has been a few times that I have tried to get somewhere only a few kilometers away and ended up having to walk the entire way. Buying a car or ebike isn't practical for many people, especially expats here only for a few months. Its so frustrating when 4 or so empty cabs drive straight past you. They need to enforce the laws in place, and I agree with the idea of inspectors. Place them randomly around the city, you wouldn't even need very many of them. Even just a few might be enough to scare drivers into changing up shift times or to stop for people who are obviously trying to waive them down.

I just got back from this hospital and I was very pleased. I showed up in the middle of the night throwing up uncontrollably and was helped immediately. They diagnosed me and brought me to a very nice room. Cozy, 120 channels and even a little attached bathroom. The place is super clean and I thought the staff was very helpful, although due to me showing up in the middle of the night there was no translators. I speak decent chinese so between that and the doctors using pleco on their phones we were able to communicate just fine. i was put on an IV. The following morning their translator was there and she was incredibly sweet and helpful as well. I would definitely recommend this place if you have anything you need. Its clean, friendly, modern, and in my opinion for all the crap I ended up deciding to do, very reasonably priced. Only thing is that I wish I couldve used my insurance as I am covered through it internationally, but the process was too complicated and i decided to just go the cash route.

Just got back from this place. We paid for a cab out there because it had such good reviews, and to be honest we were a bit disappointed. We are huge indian food fanatics and have had a huge range of authentic indian, and this stuff seemed more like a chinese attempt at indian and for the price wasnt worth it. The naan was dry and so thin and brittle that it was more like crackers. The main dishes were medium sized, but were extremely watered down. The meat was coarse and tough to chew, and the vegetables were not thoroughly cooked. It also took us almost 50 minutes to get our food. their redeeming factor was their veggie samosas; they were delicious and very flavorful. Crunchy outside, soft inside. The staff was also very friendly. Overall, if I were to recommend an indian restaurant, i would recommend Cacaja on wenlinjie instead. We have been there 6+ times and found the food to always be very high quality, and the prices are exactly the same as Saramati. I suppose theres a chance they were training in all new cooks or something at saramati and thats why the food wasnt that good, who knows. I just know I was disappointed for having gone out there when I couldve gone to Cacaja instead, especially since we paid such high prices for low quality food.
