Holidaying with your Dog

Wanting to head away on holidays with your dog but needing some inspiration? Nadia Crighton takes a look at the top holidaying tips with pooches in mind.

Some of the best family holidays have always included the addition of the dog. Sadly this isn’t always possible, however, today more than ever you can find accommodation that is suitable so your dog can enjoy the fun of being on holidays.

Accommodation

There are many beach-houses and homes that are pet friendly around the coast of Australia and beyond. But before you hit the BOOK button there are a few things to ask (don’t get sucked into the images it’s always best to double check);

  • Ask if the accommodation is fully fenced and secure?
  • Can you dog sleep inside?
  • Ask for the number of the local veterinarian.
  • Do they have an emergency veterinarian on hand? If not where is the nearest emergency veterinarian?
  • Any other hazards around the property you need to be aware of?
  • Find out if the area you are going to is a tick zone. If it is invest in some good tick prevention.

Also make sure the location is perfect for you needs. Is it in walking distance to the dog beach or dog friendly areas? Or will you need to drive? Are you able to walk your dog through town, as some rural towns are dog-free-zones. Tick all the boxes so nothing is a surprise then you can be sure you will enjoy every minute of your doggy holiday. Even some caravan parks will allow dogs at certain times of the year, but always check. There is simply nothing worst than setting off on an amazing adventure only to realize you have discovered that perfect holidaying spot…but in a town that doesn’t welcome dogs!

Time For Fun

So you’ve found the perfect accommodation and you are heading away with your beloved four-legged companion for a week full of fun and sun. What things could you do with your dog?

  • Find the local dog beach and spend the day digging, throwing balls, Frisbee’s and exploring the caves.
  • Go out for coffee and lunch with your dog. Many cafes are now dog friendly so ask around and find the perfect spot to read the paper and chill-out.
  • Don’t forget your dog toys and enjoy a good game of fetch or hide and seek.
  • Go for a nice long walk and explore your surroundings.
  • Snuggle up in the sun and read a book.

Don’t Forget

  • Plenty of towels
  • Dog shampoo
  • Dog poo bags or a little shovel
  • Toys
  • Bedding
  • Collar and up-to-date tags
  • Leash
  • Water bowl
  • Food and food bowl
  • Vaccinations, worming and flea treatments up-to-date
  • Ensure your microchip information is also updated before you leave

"My girl Bella is over 11 years old has stress & anxiety. I’ve tried everything, since buying Turkey Pet Food. I’m 💯 sure the good food & Hemp Seeds are helping her. She has been on a natural stress tab. But I’ve noticed her moving & happier in the last few weeks. Highly recommend the Pet Food. Thank you Pet Food Australia 🇦🇺"

"Seriously impressed with the impact this food has had on our 2 furbabies!! We have 2 dogs, 1 that always seemed to be hungry no matter how much food he got and another with skin allergies... now Mr gutso is satisfied with a serving size that's recommended for his breed and size and our other dog has significantly reduced the frequency of her itching 🥰 10/10 stars if I could and glad to be a part of the Pet Food Australia community 🥳"
