The UK recently relaxed it's regulations as far as dogs (in general) traveling into the country so that th are more in line with the rest of the EU. This has more to do with the FAVN rabies antibody testing as well as specific worming instructions within a certain time period prior to entry. Keep in mind, they did NOT relax their regs as far as training and certification. The rest of the EU's regs on training/certification vary by country. In the case of the dog in the video, he's from an IGDF (International Guide Dog Foundation) program and the previous regs meant a 6 month waut from the time of blood draw until he was eligible to enter the country.
