Hi Tammy

You most certainly can drive your dogs over, we bough both of ours ,but they have to be up to date with their vaccinations and also up to date with rabies as well. Contact DEFRA and they will send you the paperwork needed. The vet you use must be recognised by DEFRA. see link below for more details.
All the best.

They don't seem to be as strict bringing them from UK to Spain and in somecases they don't check, but bringing them back in from Europe they are much stricter in making sure everything is upto date. I have my Spanish dog a passport and I know if I take her back, she has to also have had a tick and flea jab within 48 hours.

Ahh mine is, forgot to mention that.... Just thought of another, over a certain weight in some places they also have to be muzzled out in public. I have a German Shepherd, I can get away in some places without putting one on her, but I know in Mijas they are quite strict so I'm told. I tend to only take her where she doesn't have to wear one, and the other thing is many resturants, providing they are on the terraces often don't mind, although I have found some who do...
