Can I take my pet with me on the passenger's cabin?

Should I clean up after my dog?

The Netherlands has opruimplicht (clean up after your dog)  and there are fines for those who do not do so. Use a paper bag, a plastic bag or a special ‘pooper scooper’ available at pet shops, veterinarians and municipal offices. Be aware of more regulations on keeping pets within your municipality.
