Taking your puppy on their first holiday can be one of the most exciting times for you and them. The chance to build memories together, explore a new place, strut along the streets of a quaint city or dance along the sands of an ocean view. But as idyllic as all these sounds, there is one major stress that you need to be wary of; packing their suitcase.

 

Of course, having a dog that’s okay travelling helps, but leaving something necessary behind is the thing of nightmares. That’s why it is important you have a checklist to work to, something visual that you can call on and tick off. As for the contents of this checklist, just read on:

Make Sure People Know Who To Call

The most important thing above all is their collar and your address, which makes it the first thing you should pack and the only thing worth constantly checking you have. If you don’t already have an address disc, then it is well worth getting one done before you leave. This should have their name, your address and your telephone number on it. It is also worth checking that your collar can’t come off accidentally. The reason all this is so important is that you’ll be visiting a different place and, should you become separated, they won’t know their way home.

 

We All Love Our Own Beds

If you’re hoping to enjoy a series of relaxing evenings while you are away, then you best make sure your pooch has their creature comforts too, and this means their bedding. This will be the very thing that helps them get all settled and snuggled while they are in unfamiliar territory. Another quick thing to point out is, a lot of hotels don’t like the idea of them sleeping on the bed. We say go for it – it’s their holiday too – but have a bed to wave as you go by to stop them asking questions.

 

All The Fun And Games They Could Want

It’s a new place for them, a new adventure, so why not add some news toys into the mix. The choice of playthings seems to grow quicker than Youtube’s library, which means it can be pretty daunting know what is out there and what you should go with. But if you look at what the experts are selling, places like getdogtoys.com, you’ll be able to come to a pretty informed decision and buy your pooch the perfect going away present to play with when you are away.

 

A Dog’s Gotta Eat

Chances are, your dog has gotta a favorite food, and maybe a favorite brand of food and, well, they do deserve the best. That is why it is so important that you pack enough for your whole stay. After all, you wouldn’t want to get to your destination and find out they don’t stock your puppy’s preference. If you want to know what others consider the best food to be then just look at this list by stories.barkpost.com. The same goes for snacks. Of course, it is all about their preference (although that would be enough reason) because a new food could see them get an upset tummy, and an upset tummy could ruin your holiday.
