    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Carol. By "trains operating within <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow">Spain</a>" I was referring to trains operating solely within Spain; however, it is actually also the case that the internationally operating '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html">France-Spain High Speed</a>' trains have a similar policy regarding traveling with dogs. The rules for these trains specifically state that only dogs under 10 kg are allowed to be taken on board, and that they must be contained within a carrier. With that said, there is no way to know if they would actively enforce this policy locally. I would suspect that you would not have any issue traveling with your 12 kg dog in a carrier on any of these trains. With regard to the '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html">France-Spain High Speed</a>' trains (the train operates between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/paris/index.html" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html">Barcelona</a>), it states that the carrier must have a maximum size of 45x30x25 cm. With regard to trains operating domestically within <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow">Spain</a>, it states that the maximum size of the carrier can be 60x35x35 cm. Tickets for dogs can only be purchased locally at the stations. On trains operating domestically within <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow">Spain</a>, the price would be 25% off the local price of a 2nd class ticket (even if you travel in 1st class). We don't have any information about the cost of dog tickets on the '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/france-spain-high-speed-train/how-to-book.html">France-Spain High Speed</a>' trains; however, it may be anywhere between 25% and 50% off the local price of a 2nd class ticket..

On these trains, you can take your dog as long as it's kept in an enclosed carrier. You would have to purchase a special ticket for your dog, which can only be done locally at the station. The price of the dog ticket should be about 50% off the local price for 2nd class tickets (even if you travel in 1st class).

Generally, these trains can be booked once within 120 days of an intended date of departure. As for trains operating within <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow">Spain</a>, it is true that larger dogs would not be allowed. However, dogs under 10 kg are allowed on Spanish trains if contained within an enclosed carrier (max 60cm x 35cm x 35cm).
