Motorhome holidays are a great opportunity for you to go away with your dog(s), but as with small children, you’ll need to remember to bring a few things to ensure that their time away is as comfortable and stress free as possible.
Here’s a handy checklist of essential items to take with you:
|Food, bottled water, and treats|
|Their favourite toys/ball and plenty of poo bags!|
|Ground tether or stake (don’t forget your mallet)|
|Bed (take a plastic sheet if you have a fabric bed, to put underneath so it doesn’t get wet on the ground)|
|Safety harness (if you’d prefer to keep them secure in transit)|
|First Aid kit (copy of your dog’s veterinary records)|
