How to take your dog on vacation with you.

Going on vacation can be stressful: you don’t want to forget anything and you want to fit everything in one suitcase. There are so many things you have to think of for yourself. So, it’s even more stressful when you bring your Frenchie with you on vacation. That’s why we’ve made this checklist to help you out.

Be sure to check that your dog has the proper shots for the country that you’re going to and that you’re keeping to the rules of bringing your your dog with you on vacation. If you’re driving through different countries, like a road trip in Europe, be sure to check the rules of each and every country. Even if you won’t stay long.


Once you’ve checked up on the rules and regulations of bringing your dog on vacation, it’s time to pack his bags. What do you pack?

• Your dog’s passport
• Water for on the road
• Tick removal tools
• His bed or a nice blanket so he can relax
• His own food, especially if he’s a picky eater and doesn’t want to eat the food you buy on vacation
• Food and drinking bowls
• His favorite toys
• Going to a warm country? Bring a cooling mat
• Enough medication if your dog uses it and the proper paperwork
• Poo bags
• In case it’s mandatory, a muzzle.
• In case it’s mandatory, a seatbelt for your dog.
• Are you skiing? Bring vaseline for his paws.
Don’t forget to write down your vet’s phone number in case you need to call them for advice. You can also look up the vets of your destination spot.
