One of the best things about having a dog is being able to take them on your travels with you, but this may not always be possible. Your dog is a part of your family, and therefore you will have to plan ahead to make sure they have everything they need in order to be safe and healthy when they are travelling with you. From dog-friendly holiday parks to essential travel accessories, here are a couple of ways in which you can plan your dog-friendly holiday to be as enjoyable and stress-free for you both.
One of the most important parts of going on holiday with your dog is making sure that the accommodation you choose is dog-friendly. Many places have accommodation options in which you can bring your dog, and you should always choose these. Different areas and accommodation styles have different rules, but you will be able to find some UK holidays that are suitable for you and your dog.
The location in which you stay should also be suitable for your dog, as they may not enjoy staying in a busy city if this is not something they are used to. Think about what you and your dog both enjoy and what you want to get out of the holiday. If you want to spend time running around a city, then it may not be a suitable holiday to take your dog on. Furthermore, when you are on holiday, you will also need to check that the places you want to visit also accept dogs so that you don’t have to leave them in the accommodation or outside.
All dogs respond to travel differently, and you will need to take this into consideration when planning your holiday. There are many modes of transport, from public to private, cars, trains or planes, and there are different rules for traveling with animals on each. If you are travelling by car, then there are many ways you can make sure your dog is used to it before you set off. Many people choose to stay in the same area or country when going on holiday with a dog, as it can be much simpler and cheaper. Staycations are a great way to have a change of scenery while keeping the holiday affordable and as hassle-free as possible.
There are lots of accessories and gadgets you can purchase to make sure that your dog is as comfortable as possible throughout the whole process. These will depend on your dog, your destination, and your general holiday plans, but it is important to make sure you are prepared. This will help make the holiday as stress-free as possible for the both of you. Common travel accessories for dogs include collapsible crates and dog seatbelts for the journey, as well as food and grooming items. Many travel accessories are collapsible or easy to store, as this gives you more room both on holiday and to store the items at home when you are not using them.
