    Hi Meg,

    On a train from Frankfurt to Paris, you would be able to take your dog on board but not the crate.

    When traveling with a dog, you would just have to expect the following:

    1.) The requirement that your dog be leashed, and in some cases, even muzzled.

    2.) The possibility that the conductor would move you to another part of the train if any neighboring passengers object to the presence of your dog.

    3.) The need of a separate ticket for your dog. You would purchase the ticket for your dog at the station before you board. Generally, a dog ticket would be 25-50% off the local price of a 2nd class ticket (even if you’ll be traveling in 1st class).

    4.) The requirement of appropriate documentation, such as a dog registration certificate and health card.

    As for yourself, you would purchase tickets from Frankfurt to Paris by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Trains from Frankfurt to Paris are TGV Est (France-Germany High Speed) trains. Generally, these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

      My guess is that would be too large and not allowed by the conductor.
