Travelling is basically not just for humans. Your dearest pets can go to a vacation too. What, haven’t you not considered about that? Well, just imagine the amount of stress that they have for guarding your house safe every day. Now, isn’t that worthy of a pet reward?
People usually travel by groups. Either with their schoolmates, co-workers, relatives or friends. Who can possibly turn down the idea of going in a vacation with your squad, right? But how about travelling with your pet? A dog to be particular? Well, they are not called man’s best friend for no reason.
Reason Why Your Dog Deserves To Be Rewarded.
Either they can cheer up your gloomy mood by simply wagging their tail or by licking your cheek to show you how grateful they are, that they truly appreciate every simple thing that you do.
How about let them tag along while you travel to different places? Sounds fun, right?
Some may not be enthused by the idea of bringing a dog to a vacation. I mean, bringing a baby already spells hassle and stress and now bringing a dog? Somebody might be out of their mind to do that according to others but for those who are self-declared dog person, the idea is nothing but definitely a cross out on the bucket list.
Things To Keep in Mind When Traveling With a Dog
Of course let’s start with the golden rule when it comes to dogs—always feed them right and on time. Obviously it’s primarily to avoid dogs being hungry and that makes them become moody. Yes, girls on their period are not the only creature in this planet who are subjected to feel moody.Dogs are also included too.
But going back to the original topic, this is also to avoid the dogs to feel irritated and hastily bite on every human that they see. That tends to happen to some dogs whenever owners forgot to feed them.
Next is keep them clean. I think this is one is very important to be applied to your pet dog as much as possible. This is to avoid them having dog louse—which is absolutely not quite pleasant to see. Also this is to keep them healthy.
Remember that if a dog is healthy it will show on the volume of his fur. Lastly, it is also essential to keep them clean since you are travelling with them. Definitely not a sight to see if you ever see a filthy dog.
Keep them in the loop. Dogs are like humans too—they wanted to be with their owner if possible all the time. can you imagine the sadness that they feel whenever they are left at home alone? That is exactly what I’m talking about. Now that you have included them in your travel trip, of course they want to go with you wherever you are planning to go too.
They are social animals who loves to mingle with humans since dogs are considered to be one of the very cheerful animals.
Play with them. See their tail wagging in a very fast speed along with their tongue showing? That is them asking you to play with them.
After a long and tiring travel, playing with your pet dog is certainly one of the most natural stress reliever that natured designed for us humans.
Play catch the ball, fetch a stick or simply a game of tag. Dogs will definitely love that most especially if you just travelled for the past hour and they are still a bit shaken from the jet lag. Who knows they must have feeling the stress from travelling too?
Bring them to nice places. Just like you, dogs can also appreciate nice and wonderful places. You know those times when they just sit and let out their tongues while looking apprehensively at their surroundings?
That is them observing and letting the place be engraved in their memory. Dogs are smart. You will be even surprised by the amount of things their brain can handle.
They might not be able to show or tell you, but believe me there are a number of ways that they can show it to you. So for every place that you travel with them, make sure that you bring them too to one of the nice places.
Give them a reward if they do something good. A simple reward can actually do—a pat on the head, a squeeze on the cheeks or a food. ¬That is also one way to keep them in place and make sure that they will behave. Why not give them food for every single person they help? Or how about those times that they behaved and did not bark on a stranger you were conversing with?
Given the fact that you are travelling with them, might as well start practicing them to behave because there are some dogs who have the tendency to go wild whenever faced with a crowd.
So far, there are some travelers who usually take their dogs with them and the vacation had been extremely fun.
There is undeniably no question to that though, especially if you are the kind of people who are open for suggestions and not afraid to try new things out.
Just always keep in mind that dogs are still animals and they still have the tendency to go lunatic whenever driven or provoked so be careful and mindful of the things that might cause this trouble to your beloved pet.
Remember that it is quite a vital part too to look after your dog at most times since they are going to be your travel buddy for the meantime.
I can assure you it will be nothing but fun. All in all, travelling with your pet dog sounds even more interesting than you locking yourself at your room.
That sound completely depressing, mind you. So open that map and start looking for a place to go to take your newly-found best friend with you. Bon Voyage!
