Pet friendly holidays

Deciding whether your pet will come with you

Before you make the decision on whether to take your pet with you or not, you will need to think carefully about:

  • whether they're happy to travel for long distances
  • the temperature of the location you'll be travelling to
  • which is the best way to travel there
  • whether your pet would be happier staying with someone at home

Before you go

There will be some things you'll need to think about before you head off for your holiday:

  • If you're heading abroad, be sure that your pet has all of the necessary paperwork and vaccinations needed
  • No matter where you're going, make sure that your details on your pet's microchip and ID tag on their collar are up to date
  • Ensure your pet is up to date on their flea and worm treatment
  • Check where the local vet will be in the area you're visiting in case of an emergency
  • Think about any training that will need to take place before you leave, such as getting your dog to come back to you whenever you call

What to pack for your pet's holiday

  • Food enough for the duration of your stay
  • Water for the journey
  • Bowls for food and water
  • Crash tested car harness or crate
  • Collar and tag with address and phone number on it
  • Lead
  • Harness for walking (optional)
  • A long line
  • Poo bags
  • Bed and blankets
  • Treats and chews
  • Toys
  • Towel 
  • First aid kit
  • Water bottle for walks
  • Coat (if needed)
