Pawsome Summer Adventures

Summer is here, and the call of the open road (or trail!) is strong. But if your idea of a perfect adventure includes your four-legged companion, a little extra planning goes a long way. Here at Le Dog Company, we know how important it is to keep your pup happy and healthy during your summer travels. So, pack your bags, grab your leash, and let's dive into some tips for a pawsome summer getaway with your dog!

Keeping Your Pup Cool:

  • Beat the Heat: Summer sun can be harsh, especially for our furry friends. Consider a cooling vest for your dog to wear during walks or outings. Canada Pooch (hi, Canadian friends!) offers a variety of styles and sizes to ensure a comfortable fit.

  • Portable Hydration: Staying hydrated is crucial! Invest in a portable water bottle (we love these ones from Springer) with a built-in bowl, or consider a collapsible water dish for easy travel.

  • Chill Out Zones: Provide your pup with cool rest areas. The Le Dog Mat is a lifesaver while traveling - put in the back of your vehicle or move it around your home Airbnb from room to room. 

Safety First:

  • Life on the Water: If your summer adventures involve boating, kayaking, or paddleboarding, a properly fitted life jacket is essential for your dog's safety. Look for a life jacket with a strong handle for easy lifting and bright colors for better visibility.
Packing Smart for Your Dog:
  • Food on the Go: Portion out your dog's food for the trip and store it in airtight containers. Tip: Pre-measure single serving portions before you leave to avoid spills and ensure your pup gets the right amount.

  • Treat Time: Pack your dog's favorite treats in a secure, resealable bag. Consider bringing along some long-lasting chews to keep them occupied during travel.

  • Lint Roller Rescue: Traveling with a dog often means dealing with fur. A lint roller is a lifesaver for keeping your car and clothes fur-free. We love bringing this on holidays to de-fur your Airbnb prior to departure!

Bonus Tip: Don't forget the essentials! Pack your dog's regular leash, collar with ID tag, waste bags, any medications they need, and a first-aid kit for minor emergencies.

Making Memories Together

By planning ahead and keeping your dog's comfort and safety in mind, you can ensure a stress-free and enjoyable summer adventure for both of you. Capture those special moments with your furry best friend! Consider bringing a tripod to set up your camera for hands-free photos or even fun action shots.
With a little preparation, you can create lasting memories exploring new places and having fun in the sun with your furry best friend!
