Is Your Dog Ready For The Next Family Vacation?

Vacations are one of the most special moments of the year. It’s a chance for you to explore new places and enjoy fun and games with your loved ones. But they should be for the whole family, and that includes the dog.

Unlike other pets like cats and rabbits, it is possible to take your furry friend on vacation. However, this should only happen if the dog is well prepared. Otherwise, it won’t be fair on you, other travellers, or the pooch.

A little strategic planning goes a long way. Here’s everything you need to know.


Dog Training

First and foremost, you need to be sure that the dog is going to behave. The last thing you need is a pet that runs wild in an unfamiliar territory. If that’s going to be the case, it’s better off to leave your furry friend with a relative or in kennels.

Specialist dog obedience training should work wonders for getting your pet to behave and respond in a positive manner. And those benefits should be felt long after the vacation too. Quite frankly, it won’t just make life easier for you. It will improve the quality of your dog’s life too.

As a responsible owner, you need to have control over your dog at all times. Apart from anything else, you need to know your pet won’t get into fights with others.

Nutrition

Taking care of a dog requires various elements. Good nutrition is easily one of the most important factors to the pet’s overall health, and that shouldn’t change on holiday.

It’s crucial that you continue to use any supplements that may be required to fight various problems with joints and muscles. Similarly, you need to focus on foods that are good for their dental health. You can still treat the pet with special ice cream for dogs to make it a real holiday, but you cannot throw their nutrition out of the window. Being responsible is vital.


A healthy dog is a happy dog. That will lead to a better holiday for you. Perhaps more importantly, it will generate a better holiday for the pooch too.

Accessories

Holidays should be about fun and games. If you’re taking the dog, then you’ve probably gone camping or taken another dog-friendly trip. Let’s face it; you aren’t jetting the dog off for a week-long trek in New Zealand.

Staying active is a crucial part of the enjoyment for the dog and your entire family. There are various games that can be played to inject extra fun into your adventures. However, if you’re going to be utilising the pool, you may want to consider doggles. Just like humans, dogs deserve to have their eyes protected. It could go a long way to avoiding serious problems.

It’s equally vital that you’ve packed a dog bed and have a suitable collar and lead. It’s for the dog’s sake as much as yours. Knowing that your pet is safe and happy will make a huge difference to your holiday adventure. With those factors in mind, there’s nothing to stop it being your best vacation ever.
