If there is no mention of it on the website, it’s worth checking with the accommodation provider if they provide any facilities on-site such as water bowls, gates, etc. This could help you save on packing space in the car!
Double check that your holiday accommodation is secure, and that your dog will be safe at all times.
Keep things like dog food, water, leads and poop bags handy for the journey.
Dogs like their routine so try to keep with the same walking and feeding routine that you would at home. Packing familiar bedding and their favourite toys can also be a big help.
Walking your dog as soon as you arrive will also help familiarise them with new surroundings.
Organise A Health Check Before You Go Make sure your pet is up to date with vaccinations and flea/worming treatments. Being away from home and in unfamiliar surroundings it’s a good idea to have your dog microchipped for added safety. If your dog is already chipped, don’t forget to make sure the contact details are up to date, as well as on their collar if they wear one. Pack any health insurance documents or have policy details easily to hand in case of emergencies. Where To Go and What To Do Don’t forget to to check when planning your holiday itinerary that what you want to do is suitable for dogs and what their rules are surrounding bringing pets. Many places in the UK are dog friendly and encourage taking a staycation with your dog, however it’s still a good idea to check in advance. For more tips and advice please check out our Guides.
