Preparation for Travel with Dog

Travel with dogs, just like travel with kids, can become a major nightmare—if you take every toy your dog owns, his crate and dog bed and every other piece of dog equipment you have.

The secret to having a good vacation with your pet is to travel light and travel smart,  A dog friendly vacation can be lots of fun—it just takes some planning and preparation…

  • Dog Friendly Lodging – If your hotel or motel is dog friendly, what exactly does that mean…
  • Pet Emergency Evacuation Plans – While it might seem remote, you could travel to an area that is hit by a natural disaster.  Make sure you know how you would handle your Weimaraner’s care.  What would you do if you became separated from him?
  • Pet Hurricane Preparedness Kit – A natural disaster can occur, unexpectedly, anywhere. If you have an emergency preparedness kit for your dog, you can quickly evacuate, and you won’t have to leave him behind…
  • Dog Friendly Crate – In many cases you won’t need to take your dog’s crate. However, for some forms of dog travel, a collapsible dog crate comes in handy…
  • Large Dog Air Travel Crate – Many people are now purchasing a spot on the airplane, with them. A Weimaraner won’t fit under the airplane seat or do well on your lap. What are your options for airline travel with your dog…
  • Dog Car Travel – Nobody expects to stop quickly or be in an accident.  But, if you need to put on the brakes, a dog safety harness will protect your dog from harm.
  • Dog Anxiety – It’s a fact of life. Some dogs do get nervous about travelling, and that doesn’t make traveling with your dog a lot of fun! Using a product like this natural anxiety reliever can give your dog (and you) some relief.  By the way, it also works for separation anxiety, a common problem with Weimaraners!

While a Weimaraner is a large dog, it is still possible to travel with your dog and have a great dog friendly vacation together.

It just takes a little research, planning and preparation for you to travel with dog. And, of course, knowing ahead of time that your Weim will be welcome—will add to your comfort level…
