Taking a dog with you on a camping holiday

It may seem like a nice idea to be able to take your pet with you when you go on a camping holiday but you do have to consider your options carefully before committing to taking them along. Firstly you need to consider how long the journey to and from your destination is going to be and what your dog is like at travelling. If the dog does not feel happy being in the car then it may not be a good idea to take them on an eight hour car journey.

If you are going to a seaside destination then you will need to check if dogs are allowed on the beaches. Some beaches restrict dogs altogether others may restrict dogs at certain times of the years or on parts of the beach.

If you are planning on going out for meals etc whilst on holiday then you need to think what you will do with your dog whilst you are out, it is not advisable to keep them inside the tent nor in a car, so unless you can take them with you, you may find that you are very restricted in what you can do.
