Traveling For The Holidays With Your Dog

If you are traveling during the holidays, you may want to take your dog with you. Here are some tips on how to travel with your dog:

1. Before You Travel:

  • Check with your vet that your dog is healthy enough to travel.
  • Check with the airline about approved carriers and rules of travel based on the size of your dog.
  • Get your dog microchipped.
  • Make sure your dog is caught up on all necessary vaccinations.
  • Make copies of all of your dog’s medical records and relevant documents.

2. What to Pack:

  • Copies of medical records and relevant documents. Keep a copy with you and attach a copy to your pet’s travel crate.
  • First aid kit
  • Food
  • Poop bags
  • Collar and leash
  • Travel crate
  • Collapsible food and water bowls
  • Calming tablets or anti-stress meds (talk to your vet before using these on your pet)
  • Bedding
  • Toys
  • Treats

3. When You Arrive:

  • Keep your dog at the front entrance and check out the vacation home alone.
  • Make sure the home has a familiar scent by walking around and even spraying your perfume or cologne lightly around the home.
  • Check around the home to get rid of anything chewable at your dog’s height. Bring out their usual chew toys to get them feeling at home.
  • Take your dog for a long walk and give them a few treats to reward them for being such a great traveller!
