Holidays with dog – a checklist
Relaxed on holiday – despite the dog!
I pack in my suitcase the passport, the swimming trunks and … of course my dog! But a holiday with a dog has to be planned properly – we have put together a small checklist for you, so that nothing can go wrong!
We had to wait some time for this, but there is a green light: it is also allowed to travel in the summer of 2020! Most of them are on holiday in Austria this year – but there are also some things to consider in their own country when travelling with your four-legged friend!
If the suitable accommodation, where dogs are allowed, has been found, it’s time to pack! The dog also needs his own suitcase with the following things:
- dog food tailored to the duration of the holiday,
- Napfor water and food,
- Dog faeces,
- collar, chest harness, leash and tow line,
- Dog tracker,
- Transport box or belt for strapping the car,
- Blanket or baskets,
- toys (also suitable for water),
- Emergency pharmacy with association and the most important medicines,
and, of course, particularly important:
- the LimuZZ muzzle basket!
But why is the muzzle so important when you are travelling with the four-legged friend in Austria? The provisions on muzzle or linen compulsion are laid down by the individual municipalities and länder, which is why the legal situation may be different. As a precautionary measure, it is therefore advised to always carry a muzzle with you. In addition to the accommodation (whether hotel, apartment or campsite) it is often mandatory to put a muzzle on the dog, especially for (tourist) excursion destinations. Those who travel in the mountains will need it in mountain railways or on gondola trips and those who want to take a boat trip at the lake are also on the safe side with a muzzle. The LimuZZ muzzle basket is totally light, hardly needs space due to its flexibility and is quickly moved on and off again!
It is also popular in inns, restaurants or taverns if the dog wears a muzzle. Not only the encounter with other dogs is more relaxed, but also the people react more calmly to the four-legged friends. And the LimuZZ still has a side effect: begging at the table for food is in vain and food leftovers on the ground do not end up in the dog’s stomach! 😉
