Dog Holidays

If you are travelling by car, your dog must be secured with a harness. If you are going on a long journey, remember to take regular breaks in a safe area for your dog to stretch her/his legs. NEVER EVER leave your dog in a car, even if you think it will only be for a short time. Dogs quickly and easily become overheated or cold which are very serious conditions. So please Never leave them in a car.

Take a bottle of water and a plastic bowl in your car and keep it in an easy to reach place. So your dog can have regular drinks. It is possible to buy special travel dog Bowls.

Take enough supplies of your dogs normal food with you, also remember to pack adequate supplies of any medications your dog needs. You should also take your normal first aid kit for dogs.

Of course as always your dog must be wearing an identity tag, or hopefully you will have had them microchipped. If they are microchipped, don't forget to take their id number with you. Make a temporary holiday identity tag.

Also take a recent photo of your dog with you, if she/he becomes lost a photo willl be useful to show the police and others.

You can find lots of useful information about microchipping, and travelling abroad with your pet on The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs website

You can find lots of Dog Friendly holidays on the Dogs Trust website.

Dont forget to pack your Camera and take lots of lovely photos of your doggie having a wonderful holiday
