Pick a Vacation:
Vacationing with your pet can range from run-of-the-mill to extravagant
. An active pup could go dog-sledding in Alaska. They could also be taken on truffle hunts in Oregon or to a dog-friendly camp to spend quality time together. A road trip to Texas could be fun, especially if your destination is Austin, which is considered the most dog-friendly city in the country. There are even festivals devoted to dogs
and their owners. If you're looking for something beachy, try surfing with your pup. Your next trip can be as creative and active as you are. Prepare for New Parks:
Almost every city has a dog park these days. However, when visiting a new area, it's best to prepare your dog to avoid an incident. Be sure your ID tags are up to date and that you've microchipped Spot. Also, have you vaccinated your dog
recently? If not, do so before you leave. Stop by your vet's to stock up on parasite prevention products. It's also helpful (and important) to read up on how to stop a dog fight
as well. You should never get between two dogs; instead, do your best to distract them. There is the potential for serious injuries, and any incident could leave you unable to take care of your dog. Stay safe and be prepared.
