    Did it ever happen to you to be on your way out and see your furry friend giving you that sad look? Even if you want to take your dog wherever you go all the time, sometimes you just cannot do it. However, when it comes to a road trip there is no one else to tell you that you cannot bring your furry friend with you. Traveling with your dog is surely one of the most amazing experiences because we all know that dogs are man’s best friends. They can make you laugh with their silly playing no matter how bad your mood is. Yet, you have to be aware that taking your dog to a road trip means a lot of responsibility for you in order to take care of the dog properly so that nothing bad happens to any of you. Make sure your dog is ready for a long road trip Before you decide to take your dog with you for a long road trip you have to make sure that this is a good idea. He or she might be a well-behaved dog but the noises around and the moving car is not a comfortable environment for any dog. So, before you get going on the road, take your furry friend for smaller trips to see how he or she behaves. Documents for your dog When traveling with your dog you need to consider his or her documents as well, especially if you are traveling somewhere abroad. First of all, you need to take your dog to the vet and take all the necessary vaccines that he or she might need, and make sure your dog is microchipped as a safety measure in case he or she gets lost. Moreover, those two are regulations that you need to respect in most of the countries.  Secondly, you might need documents that prove that you are the owner of the dog and a passport for your furry friend to be able to cross the border with you. Get a big stock of essentials Once on the road, you and your dog both have to eat from times to times and stay hydrated. Get plenty of dog food and water bottles to ensure your dog’s well-being. Moreover, you should also have with you treats for rewarding your bog for being a good boy/girl, toys to keep him or her busy while you are driving, and a blanket of bed for when your furry friend decides to take a nap. Do not leave the dog in the car for too long During your road trip, there will surely be moments when you need to stop to buy some more things or to find a restroom. While you do that, your dog is going to wait for you patiently inside the car. However, you should make sure that you do not leave him or her there for too long because the high temperature of a dog’s body combined with the hot weather can seriously damage the health of your dog. Also, make sure that whenever you leave your furry friend in the car to wait for you, to leave an open window for some fresh air to come inside the car if you do not want people on the street to have to break the window to save your dog and you to have to got to get a car glass repair. Leash and collar The happiest moment for your dog is going to be when you stop on the road to take him or her out for a walk. However, even if your dog is well-behaved, you are both in a new environment that you do not know and some distractions like noises or other people might scare him or her and you might have to run a lot to take your dog back inside the car. Which is why it is absolutely necessary for you to take your dog’s collar and leash for safety. Secure the dog for the ride Thinking about the safety measures is the most important aspect of your road trip together with your furry friend. Essentials can be bought everywhere and that is why the well-being of your dog should be something that concerns you the most. When you are on the road you need a seatbelt in order to stay safe in case of an accident or when you have to slam on the breaks because you need to stop immediately.  You need to consider that your furry friend also needs to be secured inside the car while you are driving and some situation like those above could happen. You surely do not want to see him or her flying forward. For securing your dog you can use a seat harness or a crate. Do not let the dog sit on your lap while you are driving No matter how much you think you know your dog’s behavior and how much control you think you have when it comes to stopping him or her from doing something, letting your dog sit on your lap while you are driving is a horrible idea. There are many situations that could happen that will put both of you in danger. Your dog might get scared because of something or become nervous and try to bark at something on the window which is going to make it really difficult for you to see the road anymore. Make frequent stops You might be used to having such a long way without eating, drinking water or using the bathroom. However, your dog does not have the same patience as you might have. You need to make frequent stops and ensure him or her with all the essentials, short walks, and some entertainment because he or she might be really bored when you do not play with him or her for too long. After you have finished packing for both of you, buckle up for an amazing adventure together with your fog, knowing that you have a loyal friend next to you that only wants to spend time with you no matter where you are.

    Parents are scared of the idea of travelling with their kids. If you find yourself in this situation, you should know that the most difficult part is getting started. Families consider that travel is a far-away dream, because they will not be able to make their children listen to what they say, and enjoy the new places they visit. It is definitely worth to make an effort and to plan a family vacation, because you all will remember this day. There is no a perfect time for a family trip, you will soon find it, because different families have different opinions. Your main question is how your children will be able to get accustomed to a new routine. Well, it is easier than you imagine, and as they get older they will consider it an activity that allows them to have a lot of fun.   Choose your destination Before choosing your destination, you should know that you have to avoid some places. It is not advisable to choose a destination that is located in a remote area, or in a too cold or too hot region. Also, you should not travel with your kids to a rainy destination, because it will cause them anxiety and this is the last thing you want from children during a vacation. Some parents consider the United Kingdom an amazing destination for family trips, because during summer there are pleasant temperatures. If you want to try something more exotic, then you can travel to Asia. You have to decide what you would like to show to your children. Do you want to take them to a modern city, to wilderness, to a beach or you want all of you to relax in the room of a hotel? It is crucial for the trip to be customised according to the needs of your family members. Safety and health are essential Your priority should be the safety and health of your family members. It does not matter if when you were a child you run free in your grandparents’ backyard, if you know that your children are not used to run free in nature, you should make sure that you do not expose them to dangers. When you decide on your destination, you have to make sure that the locals speak your language, or an internationally known language, like English. If you know that your children love to have adventures, you should not travel to a space where they are exposed to parasites and diseases. Adequate research will help you decide what destination is appropriate for your family’s needs. England is a great destination for families with children, because they have plenty to see, and the health system is one of the most reliable ones in the world. Transportation You should start by researching the transportation means available in your destination country, if you want to organise a safe trip. Choose a destination you can reach in a maximum 5 hours air-flight. If you have babies and you want to visit Dover, it is advisable to check the Dover Cruise Transfers options. You do not want your children to stay in a crowded transportation facility. Do they have the required vaccines? If you intend to take your children in a foreign country during this trip, then it is advisable to check the list of vaccines required when taking children to that particular region of the world.

Is the hospital close to your accommodation facility? You have to check if there are hospitals located close to the accommodation facility you rent during your vacation, because you need professional help if your children get sick. Contact a company specialised in offering minibus with driver hire because if you have an emergency they can take you to the hospital fast. If you travel to England, you will benefit of world class health treatments, but if you want to choose another destination, it is advisable to check the reviews the local hospitals have, to make sure that they can care for your children. Make sure that both you and children have what to see When you organise a family trip both you and your little ones should have fun. Family trips are about creating memories and having unique experiences. And the Internet can offer you complete information about any destination worldwide. Some people use Pinterest to organise their family trips, because a board can help them plan the activities they should have. Include in your itinerary things both you and your children would enjoy to do and see, because you have to make sure that the little ones do not get bored. Gather multiple ideas and ask them what they would like to do, if they are old enough.
