We always take an assortment of toys but I always make sure there are chasing ones and food filled ones (along with a jar of peanut butter) to keep him busy and entertained.
I know how some people feel about dogs in clothes, but we have a little dog who does get cold easily, so a cute jumper like this one from Dressed by Finn is perfect for night times in a tent. We’ve also found that more often than not you have to sit outside pubs with dogs, so I pop it in my handbag for evenings out as well.
Jim thinks I’m crazy for having a dog first aid kit but taking it with us makes me feel better.
As we camp near the sea and spend a lot of time on the boat when we’re away a dog lifejacket is an essential for our trip. But if you’re not planning on swimming or sailing you could probably miss this off the list!
This might look like a giant corkscrew but it’s a spike we twist into the ground so that Flash can roam but not too far. It’s really useful for busy campsites where people might not want a dog roaming free and for when you’re preoccupied with things like putting up the tent. I sometimes use it at my Nannans house too as her garden isn’t secure but with a long rope it means he can play.
Do you holiday with your pooch?
