TRAVELLING WITH YOUR DOG TO EUROPE
WHAT KIND OF HOLIDAY DO YOU HAVE PLANNED?
One of the things to consider is the type of vacation you have in mind. Taking your dog on a trip exploring national parks and taking long walks through the city is a great idea. But if you want to visit museums, churches, and art galleries, your pet will probably be rejected.
PLACES IN EUROPE WHERE YOU CAN GO WITH YOUR DOG
- Most European cities have cafes and restaurants with terraces or patios where you can go with your dog.
- Generally, you can visit parks with your furry friend in many European cities, except in Paris.
- You can also your dog to outdoor markets and plazas.
- The most dog-friendly countries in Europe are France, Italy, and Germany.
WHERE TO STAY WITH YOUR DOG
Finding a pet-friendly hotel can be complicated when you are travelling with your dog to Europe.
Some hotels do not accept pets, but many places allow dogs.
It is worth calling the hotel where you are planning to stay to check before booking.
THE BEST WEATHER FOR TRAVELLING WITH YOUR DOG TO EUROPE
The best time to travel to Europe with your dog is when the weather is mild, neither too cold nor too hot.
Make sure you always carry plenty of water so that your pet does not become dehydrated.
TRAVEL EQUIPMENT FOR YOUR DOG
Like people, dogs need documentation that allows them to travel.
In general, that means that your dog must have a passport, microchip and all his updated vaccines.
Keep in mind that some countries have additional entry guidelines, such as Ireland and the United Kingdom. Be sure to check each country’s rules on your itinerary to avoid disappointments at the border.
Most small dogs are allowed in the cabin of many European airlines and trains (except Eurostar).
The easiest way to travel with your pet can be by taking a road trip. It allows you to rest and take many breaks to go to the bathroom for your dog. If you do not own a car on European soil, many car rental companies have pet-friendly policies.
In conclusion, travelling with your dog to Europe is not that complicated but requires some planning and travel requirements.
