That's interesting - I just recently read another comment from a person who showed the premium, I think, to the customs person.  Good idea to take the premium and your confirmations as well as the doggie documents.
The QC guard didn't want the premium, even though I had that too. He specifically asked for the document that had my name included, "inviting" me to Canada. I was shocked he had that much awareness of dog shows.

I cross quite often with raw food, and have never (touch wood) had a problem yet.  I try to be aware if there are any restrictions at the time (for example, a few years ago beef was a big no-no), and I think last year goat was a problem.  I do know people that have had it taken away but I've been lucky so far.

i've never had a problem, either.  Since most of my problems have been with US customs, I make sure that I am not bringing food back with me and can say they've eaten it all up while we were in Canada.

Just reporting back.  Thanks to everyone who did respond to my initial question.

Both ways it took about 40 minutes in line to get through the process.

Going into Canada, I handed my passport and a Rabies certificate to the agent.  He asked me to roll down the back window so that he could see the dog.  Cocoa travels in a harness.   He asked if I had any weapons or guns with me.  I answered no.   He also asked where I was going.  A bag of kibble was visible.  There were no more questions.

Coming back into the US, I handed my passport and rabies certificate the the agent.  He asked if I had anything to declare.  I answered no.  He also asked where I had been and I answered that.   We were waved through.

It was very very simple.

It really depends on the customs agent you get  :-)
