  • The main concern is your dog’s wellbeing so if the dog suffers from a particular health concern preparing its medicine ‘pack’ is a must, plus what every animal will benefit from is a product like sentinel, that will address heartworms caused by mosquito bites, heart or lungs failure could be the fatal outcome, so better be safe than sorry. Also prepare them with flea and tick repellants, so they can roam around freely.
  • Dog Bowls for food and water are essential and a good range is available on the market; it will satisfy almost everyone (squishable and easy to clean products win the most as while on holiday nobody wants to spend much time cleaning and washing up).

  • Portable dog bed and blanket – slightly elevated products of this type are preferable as insects will be limited in reaching your pet and therefore keeping it safe, if the same bed is comfy your pet will love you even
  • Leash and Collar go ‘hand in hand’ and most dogs will treat them like we treat clothing – should not walk out of the house without them! Retractable leashes are good for smaller and well behaved dogs, though a good ‘training’ session to make a dog more ‘sociable’ and used to other dogs and people is also
  • Poop Bags – an imperative, even if the walk is to last a very short time the dog should not be walked without them.
  • Brush – though some dogs are not very fond of being brushed it is quite important to be clean and tidy, and this item in your dog’s backpack will come in really ‘handy’.
  • Toys and Treats – there will never be enough of these and be generous with t&t, as in occupying the dog with lots of toys, exercising them, having them run and walk a lot, play and engage with you. That is the true meaning of a doggy holiday.

  • Towel – some might ask what for? Well when the dog gets wet and that is definitely going to happen whipping it with the towel you packed will be really practical;
  • 20-foot Long Lead/Tether – to chain the dog if necessary, while in the campsite or in the forest for example.

Since this type of a holiday will mostly be within the campsites that are ‘dog friendly’, obeying the rules of the premises will be prudent. The reason is that you might like to re-visit the same place again. Leaving a good impression will be the ‘carte blanche’ for the future and the dog will like that in equal terms.
