Plan for Emergencies
Emergencies can happen at any time, to anyone. Just like it’s a good idea to be prepared in case you need to go to the hospital, it’s a good idea to have a list of vets on hand for every place you’ll be staying in case your dog suddenly gets sick. Make a list of everything you will need to take care of your dog, including any medications he needs to take regularly. Also, make sure he has a collar with up to date tags, in case he wanders off. Bring a spare leash in case you misplace one, so that you don’t have to worry about your dog running off. Get your dog microchiped in case he loses his collar.

Know International Requirements
Traveling with a pet becomes much more complicated if you want to cross international borders. Each country has its own regulations for admitting animals, so you’ll need to plan well in advance. You’ll need to contact the Ministry of Agriculture in your destination country to find out what paperwork you need to have to enter the country with your dog. Rabies free countries, like Australia and the UK, have strict guidelines for bringing dogs into the country. You’ll need certificates of proof for rabies vaccinations, tapeworm treatments, and your dog will need to have a microchip implant, among other requirements. If all the requirements are not met, you will be denied entry, ruining vacation. Check and double check that you have everything you need to make your trip as smooth as possible.
