Organizing A Trip With Your Dogs October 30, 2010

This past Summer we embarked on a trip to California with Galaxy and Thornton.  Our trip was one for business and pleasure so planning ahead was crutial for the trip to go smoothly.  I was delighted that a lot of the work was done for me by some very helpful pet friendly sites.  Most of them covered pet friendly hotels, restaurants, attractions, beaches, and additional useful information.  I started looking for a hotel and came across this great site that listed the pet friendly hotels in my area with their pet policies and fees.  It made choosing a hotel very easy. As a tip I would check the reviews for the hotels as it can give you a good snap shot of the experience you can expect to have. One hotel that I checked had a review that said they were put in a hotel room near a stairwell where there was an incredible amount of foot traffic and strange noises.  This made her dog jumpy and caused a lot of barking. So, it’s worth reading the reviews and possibly picking up a tip or two.  Another site that I visited for pet friendly establishments and beaches was Pet Friendly Travel.  I particularly liked this site as it was easy to navigate and it covered just about everything you would need for travel.  Aside from the hotel and researching the area I created my packing list for my two dogs Galaxy and Thornton.  This also included a visit to the vet for flea and tic medication for California and a first aid kit.  In order for you to have the easiest time preparing and packing you can download the list I created for this trip by clicking the link below.

Most people dread packing for their vacation.  Invariabley something is forgotten and you have the unnecessary expense of buying a duplicate or you pack too much as you get frustrated and just throw things into your case.  Another thing to consider is the cost to travel and the extra charges that the airlines are adding onto your ticket price.  If they’re not charging for every piece of luggage then they’re charging for being overweight. The following tips can make your packing easier as well as a downloadable packing list.

  • Buy toiletries in small travel size containers
  • Buy small containers and transfer products into them so you don’t have to take the full size bottle
  • Share toiletries with your travelling companions, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste etc.
  • Roll your clothes to save space
  • Leave your alarm clock behind and use your cell phone as an alarm clock
  • Never pack just in case items, those are better purchased if you need them
  • Check with your hotel is they have a hairdryer in your room and leave your behind
  • Use a packing list for speedy and thorough packings
