Are you planning on bringinging your dog along on your vacation? Holidays with a four-legged friend requires preparation! How should your dog travel? We’re telling you all about it.
Get ready for a vacation with a dog: what should you bring? In a hotel, a camping site or a rental house, don’t forget to ensure that the facility is dog friendly, so that you don’t have a bad surprise when you arrive! Make sure that you take the following items with you: A first aid kit; A few of your dog’s favorite toys; A sufficient quantity of your dog’s kibbles if you’re not sure to find them at your destination
Before you leave, make sure that your dog is up to date with its vaccines. Good to know: anti-rabies vaccination is mandatory from the age of 3 months.
Anti-rabies vaccination is only valid 21 days after the injection, for a first vaccination, and not more than a year after the last shot.
In France, note that it is mandatory to identify a dog when it travels with you and to authenticate the anti-rabies vaccine.
Dog friendly beaches It is always delicate to identify which beaches accept dogs. Go to your destination’s town hall or tourist office to get information about dog-friendly beaches. Don’t forget to bring bags with you to pick up its excrements.
