We have had our chihuahua vaccinated twice for rabies now  at 3 months and then her booster came up just after Christmas. There has never been a problem.

We had our 1year old springer vaccinated - no problem - he received a booster and then had to have yet another rabies vaccination due to his microchip failing and still no problems. The main thing is that the dog is in good health when receiving a vaccine.

Not relevant I know but Virbac - who issued the chip - admitted it was a faulty chip and honourably paid for the re-chipping and re-vaccination.

I had my very nervous lurcher vacinated 7 years ago and shes had boosters ever since with no ill effects. The first time we came over we did the short Dover Calais crossing I was worried to death about her. Half way across I went down to the car to see if she was ok she just looked at me as if to say "What have you come to disturb me for?" Now she settles fine on the longer crossings and so do I infact I think shes become a right old sea dog lol

Had our tiny pupy done the week the vet said she was old enough, she was absolutly fine, no after effects whatsoever.

Tell your husband, no dear I won't have our dog innoculated aginst rabies and if he gets rabies, I'm sure you'll be fine after he bites you!

Our dog has been fine. Look on it as an opportunity for the vet to do a quick health check at the same time.

we had ours done recently - he's at least 9 and didnt have any probs at all. Having said that, I do understand it's always a worry when you anything done to them isn't it?  Enjoy your  trip :)
