4 Must Do’s While Traveling in an RV with Your Pet

April 17, 2019

Spring is here and it is time to hit the road!

There are so many different ways to travel and people are becoming more creative on checking items off their bucket list. Traveling by recreational vehicle or van has become very popular in recent years. If you are looking to travel this year with your dog in an RV, we at Petland in Georgia would love to help you with your dreams. Read on for four must do’s while traveling in an RV.

Consider your space.

Traveling in an RV sounds adventurous and easy, but it can get tricky with having a limited amount of space. You can’t take everything with you while you’re traveling, so you want to think about the most important essentials necessary for your dog. That means instead of bringing the entire toy selection you should think about bringing only the top two toys for your pet.petland in georgia

Make smart accommodations.

While you’re on the road, your style for travel may vary. You may stay in a campground or use parking lots to camp out during the night. If you’re traveling to a colder climate, research how to keep your dog warm in the winter. Whatever the choice, always make sure it is accommodating for your furry friend. For example, you don’t want to visit a campground that has a “no pet allowed” policy on the premises.

Keep a routine.

Depending on how long you will be on the road, you’ll want to make sure you maintain a schedule for your pup. Your schedule doesn’t have to be rigid, but your pet should know what to expect at least in the morning and evening. Be consistent with their feeding and walking times. This should help your pet adjust well to the temporary mobile home and decrease any anxiety they may have to the new change.

Visit the veterinarian.

Make sure your dog has their immunizations before hitting the road. It also may be a good idea to have your pet groomed as well, especially because you will be away from home for an extended amount of time. This may include getting your dog’s hair cut and nails trimmed. If you’re concerned with how to keep your dog warm in the winter – come visit us a Petland in Georgia today. Whatever your style of travel may be, Petland in Georgia wants you to be equipped and prepared for your trip. We make every effort for pet owners to be the best caregivers they can be.
