Animal-friendly – a great holiday with a dog!
Practical tips for your travel preparation with dog
Brush the dog before departure and comb out excess hair so that it is not left in the car. This should be removed then so as then the car clean. This may now seem like a baggage, but from a practical point of view, it is important and saves you extra work after arriving at the resort.
Holiday preparations are the essence of every good holiday with a dog
Before you travel, you must make sure your pet has a passport. This document includes his name, his race, his age, and his / her handynummer and address. This information must also be placed in the collar of the dog and used in an emergency, if the four-legged dog may be lost at the holiday resort. In the last few years many masters have opted for microchip identification. This is undoubtedly a better option, because neckbands can easily get away. A chip is installed under the skin of your house lover and there he stays all his life. Safe and reliable.
With a built-in microchip, nothing can happen to your house
Before you go on holiday with your dog, it is recommended that you take your health records from the veterinarian. This way, you can prove (if necessary) that your four-legged friends have all the vaccinations. Including vaccination against kennel cattle. This is a highly contagious infection of the upper airways, which spreads rapidly.
Extra tip: Take some photos of your dog. It is rather unlikely that he will be lost on vacation, but who knows…. Accidents happen. That your house from the car or hotel room escaped at the resort is just as terrible for the animal as for his master. Current photos of the dog will help you and other people find the four-legged.

Clever tips for driving with dog
At the moment you can find a wide range of travel accessories for dogs – from the simple transport box to the car travel bed to the foldable ramp. These small and / or great extras allow you to travel safely and comfortably with your pet. Special dishes for dog food and drinking water must also be provided. It would be best if you stay at the same feeding plan as usual at home during your trip. Do not forget to give your dog enough water on hot summer days and keep it well hydrated. He needs more water at summer heat! You will certainly be forced during a long drive to make a short stay every few hours. This is a very practical tip for any holiday traveler with dog. Keep the car at a grassy resting place and take a short walk with the dog. Your house will be consuming some energy, which is a must for him.
