Holidays are a great way for the whole family to enjoy and bond, and this often means taking your dog with you. Taking a dog on a holiday is pretty common these days, but it’s still an unknown area for those who’ve never done it before. Here’s our advice for your first holiday with your dog.
It’s a good idea to take your pet on a road trip first, so they can get used to the idea of traveling. Some dogs love the ride naturally, while others need positive reinforcement. Take them to the park or the beach so that, in their minds, traveling becomes associated with fun places.
Going for a walk right before the trip is a handy tip because it allows your dog to burn off some of the energy and handle the trip better.
All dogs are different, so only you can know what will work for your dog. All you need to remember is that your dog needs to connect traveling with something positive so they will enjoy the family vacation as much as you do!
