The Ultimate Vacation Checklist for your Dog
Posted on 07 April 2015
Planning a vacation with your pet requires a few extra precautions. So, while you might already have a vacation checklist for yourself, your four-legged friend needs a few extra things as well. To help you out, we’ve prepared a little checklist! From basic dog travel products to everyday essentials, this list will have you covered when you go travelling with Fido.
• Even though dog food is easily available, carry a small bag of dry dog food for any emergencies.
- Cute travel friendly bowls for food and water, so that your dog can grab a quick bite when you do!
- Don’t forget an ID tag for your dog’s collar, complete with your name, phone number and a splash of humor!
- These cute rubberized leashes that are fun to use and let your dog have his own little adventure without wandering off too far!
- Carry a stash of dog-waste bags, because you never know when or where your dog’s going to want to go!
- A comfortable blanket or Dog bed so that he/she can relax and rejuvenate along with you! Pssst – might we suggest you throw in a spa day too?
- A smart Airline approved pet carrier is necessary if you plan on taking your pet on an airplane.
- Expect the unexpected, so visit your vet for a list of emergency medication that you need to carry, as well as your pet’s medical history. Also, remember to get your vet’s contact number so that you can get in touch with him in case of any trouble. Don’t forget to carry your pet’s regular medication if he/she has any.
- Carry grooming supplies for your pet. From every day basics like a towel, brush, comb and q-tips to important yet infrequently used flea and tick medication. When in doubt – carry it all!
- Why let a little rain ruin your vacation. Carry a nifty little dog umbrella to keep your pet warm, dry and happy no matter what the weather!
- Dog’s aren’t welcome everywhere. So, while you embark on your little adventure exploring the sites, what’s your dog to do? Play with his favorite toys of course! Carry your dog’s toys to remind him of the comfort of home and keep him entertained for hours while you are away!
Now that you both are travel ready, book your tickets, pack your bags and hit the road!
