Top tips for travelling with your dog

Spring is finally here and we're all busy looking for summer dog friendly adventures but a successful trip needs careful research. To ensure that you both have the best time, well thought out pre-planning can make all the difference. We’ve put together just a few tips to make summer travel with your dog a trip to remember (in a good way)

Before you... research

Planning a trip anywhere in the UK or abroad takes a lot of research, and with a dog, well thats a whole new ball game (no pun intended). As the old saying goes, 'fail to prepare, prepare to fail'. From where to stay and what to take to what do do whilst you're there. Consider the kind of activities you'd like to do that allow dogs and have great dog facilities. 

Dog Friendly Accommodation 

There's a while host of great websites to help plan where to stay and is a great place to start looking. From cosy cottages to dog friendly pubs to dog friendly events and days out, its the perfect one stop shop for holiday planning if you're not familiar with where you're going. If a camp is more your style pitchup has some grate options with the facility to filter with the option 'dogs allowed' we love this site and its our absolute go to to make sure the site we're going to is well equipped for Lola.

Kit Essentials 

Pack the essentials! Our top tips for essentials are our collapsible travel bowl, for any adventure, this comes with us. We never want to be caught short with a thirsty Lola. Our treat pouch also comes everywhere with us. Lola isn't a huge fan of other dogs so lots of treats for distracting is a must, especially if we're on a campsite with other dogs. Make sure you take your dogs blankets or small bed for some home comforts and of course toys for play time. 

Plan the journey 

No matter wether your dog is good in the car or used to long journeys, stops are a must. Wee's and water breaks and a chance to stretch those legs at some thought out stops along the way are a must. We love to travel to North Wales and when we do we try to plan some scenic stops along the way. It's the best way to combine needed rest with an extra chance to explore. Plan your route so its not a chore but a journey. 


And the most important bit... have fun! Enjoy your time away from a screen, breathe in the fresh air, take pictures and go explore with your four legged best friend and make memories!
