Travelling With Your Dog or Rescue Dogs BC
Travelling with your dog can be a headache, like a big headache. Take it from me and my time travelling with Indy, really only by car across Alberta, BC and Vancouver Island, if your dog is in a mood and needs something, or is getting ansty after sitting in a car for 6 hours more than is comfortable, you will hear about it, and the people around you will too! When we deal with rescue dogs bc that we get from up island, we have to deal with potential rescue dogs that really don’t like to travel as it’s their first time doing so and they are scared, scared, scared!
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be. It can actually be a lot of fun. Here are the three things you’ve got to do to get your dog-friendly vacation in tip-top shape. Let me preface this by saying that if you are transporting a new rescue dogs bc or dogs for adoption bc, you should really keep them in a crate in the back as their behaviour might be erratic. But if this is your own dog that you are familiar with, then here are some quick tips that could help.
Choose the kind of vacation you want by checking with yourself and anyone else going. If you like, see what your dog thinks about what they’d like by having them walk on a map. Once you’ve determined your kind of vacation, start looking for dog friendly destinations. The idea here is that you need to plan dog friendly pitstops along the way of your journey for your rescue dogs bc to enjoy as well
If you want to travel to far away dream lands by flight, make sure to check if your dog will get along well there. You don’t want to land somewhere and realize that dogs are frowned upon. You want your dog to be comfortable anywhere. If you want to go to the beach, make sure the beaches nearby are dog friendly, otherwise your dog will be stuck in your hotel. Oh, by the way, make sure to choose a hotel with pets. If you’re flying with your dog make sure to choose an airline with sold reviews from other travellers that have used their pet services in the cargo area of the plane. Make sure they are temperature controlled with cycling fresh air, so they stay healthy. Flights will dehydrate humans and animals alike so make sure the dog has water in his crate during travel.
Now that you’ve figured the big things out it’s time to figure out the right way to travel, and other odds and ends. Where will you eat, can you take your dog out? Try to find some rescue dogs bc friendly activities, maybe a dogs for adoption bc park or two.
I hope you get the idea! Make sure to plan for your dog, you don’t want to be caught out in a distant place with your dog in tow.
