When you are far from home, in many ways you become more vulnerable. This isn’t a big concern for us humans – we know how to adjust to our surroundings and make sure we are fine. Things are a little different for dogs, who may be anxious in their new surrounds.
There are a few things that you can do to keep your dog safe while away. In the article by Bupa Pet Insurance, we talked about making sure your contact info is on your pet’s collar, just in case they get lost. It’s helpful to have a solid harness while away instead of a basic lead. Some dogs get nervous when in unfamiliar surroundings, especially if there are crowds. With a harness, you have more control over where your dog goes and what they try to sniff or gobble up as you walk around.
Your Happy World Traveller
Be sure to bring extra water and doggie snacks so your pet has more than enough to drink and eat while you are enjoying your getaway. A well-fed pup is also a calmer pup, and will be less likely to get in to mischief. Bringing along a few familiar items from home can also help to ensure that your pet feels comfortable while you are away, this could be their food dish, chew toy, or a blanket.
Once you have what you need, you and your dog are free to enjoy the open road worry-free. Going out with your dog is a great way to bond, and to enjoy the world from the wide-eyed, always upbeat perspective of your canine companion.
