As you probably know already, I’m an avid dog lover and like to keep my pet with me as much as possible. Products like dog carriers that look like cute purses make outings like the grocery store easy. But I get a lot of questions from dog parents asking about longer trips, so I thought I’d try to answer a few of them here.
Can I take my dog camping? What do I need?
As long as you’re going to a camping spot that allows dogs, sure you can! Just remember to take along whatever you need to keep your pet safe and comfortable. If the weather is warm, you’ll have to make sure your fur baby doesn’t get overheated. A cooling pad and plenty of shade are a great combination. You’ll also need food, lots of clean water, and a leash to make sure your companion doesn’t run off into the woods and get lost. And don’t forget the sleeping arrangements. If your tent isn’t big enough to share, why not get your dog his own?
But we plan to do a lot of hiking, and I’m worried that he won’t be able to keep up.
That is a concern – not all dogs are made to romp through the woods all day. If you’re concerned your fur baby won’t be able to keep up, I’d recommend using a pet stroller. A jogger design will keep your dog safe and comfortable on almost any trail. (If you’re planning on climbing Mt. Everest, you may want to reconsider taking your dog.)
What if I’m traveling by plane
The first thing you’ll want to do is check with the airline about any rules and restrictions they might have. Not all airlines will let you keep your dog in the cabin with you. Many airlines require pets to travel in the cargo hold and, in that case, there are usually temperature limits in place to keep your companion from getting too hot. Many airlines also have specific requirements for pet carriers, so you’ll want to make sure you’re in compliance on all points so that there are no unpleasant surprises at the airport.
What if I want to take my dog abroad?
First, you need to do your homework. In addition to checking in with your airline, you’ll need to research the laws of your destination country. Not all allow travelers to bring pets, and many of those that do have a mandatory quarantine period, which can be a real blow to your vacation if you’re not expecting it.
Traveling with your dog can be a lot of fun. It just requires a little more planning than traveling alone. But, as long as you do your homework, you and your baby can share the trip of a lifetime!
So, let’s pack and bring your fido hit the road!
