How to enjoy a carefree camping or caravanning holiday with your dog?
Summer is here and if you have already made plans for your holidays, do not forget about your beloved puppies. Camping and caravanning are great ways to enjoy holidays outdoors for a whole family, including dogs. Read the article to learn about taking your dog with you on camping.
You should always remember about choosing pet friendly parks. Pet friendly parks all have different conditions for allowing pets, so make sure you confirm with management the caravan / holiday park’s pet policy when you enquire. Always consider the temperament of your dog. If your puppy is likely to constantly bark or does not like to travel, it may be best to leave them with friends or at a boarding kennel (read here more). However, if you think your dog will behave well, make sure its vaccinations are all up to date before you leave. During your holidays outdoors your dog might come into contact with non-vaccinated animals. It is also a good idea to take their vaccination card with you just in case of emergency.
Remember to take with you your dog’s favourite food and water bowls. High temperatures might cause serious health problems so you should take all the necessary arrangements in order to prevent them. Plan your travel well and get your dog acustomed to travelling by car. Take your puppy on short rides and see how your dog reacts.
Important: remember to always clean up after your pet! Although you are enjoying your holidays outdoor you must bare in mind there are always other people next to you. Make sure you have control over your dog at all times.
