Thinking of Traveling With Your Dog? Here are 5 Dog-Friendly Countries to Consider

Dogs, just like humans are your friends and the least they want from you is to feel wanted or a sense of belonging. Besides eating together, your dog will have the time and appreciate the love and friendship you share when you include them in your travel plans. So, where are you traveling to next? Have you gone through the dog culture at your travel destination? Do you have your dogs and your travel documents? And, how will you reach your destination? Having these in mind is important if you don’t want to leave your dog with your babysitter.

If you are like most of us, you die a little every time you leave your dog whining, don’t you? Well, then, let’s take a look at some of the dog-friendly countries you and your furry friend should tour:

1.     France

France is a magical travel destination that offers the best sights and sounds, as well as food. But, that isn’t all. It is the nation of dog lovers – no wonder the French are always happy! On your first trip, you’ll most probably see several canines walking down the streets. You will also spot a few resident dogs napping at shop counters, markets, cafes, and even bars.

2.     Austria

Going to central Europe soon? Make your destination Austria. This country is a popular travel destination although it is commonly overlooked due to its beautiful neighbor Germany. Austria’s dog-friendliness means that you will have the best outdoor experience walking and swimming in the pristine lakes and hiking the scenic Austria hills. All you have to remember if you are planning to take a scenic hike is to get adequate protection for your dog’s paw because of the rocky landscape.

But that isn’t all, Austria is among the best dog-friendly countries, and it has some of the most progressive animal rights laws. Pet stores do not sell dogs and cats, and there are some training accessories deemed harmful to pets. So, in Austria, you will be on the wrong side of the law if you give your pooch shock collars or install invisible containment systems. Austria has several dog-friendly hotels and holiday inns.

3.     Hungary

If you are looking for an alternative destination to Austria, go to Hungary. There, dogs are part of the family, and there are strict dog protection laws to protect your furry friend. Hungary requires you to microchip your dog as a resident, and for the dog’s protection, tail docking isn’t allowed.

You will get to walk through Hungary’s beautiful historic city centers of Budapest. Dogs are welcome in parks, restaurants, and hotels. Some parts don’t require leashing as long as your dog recognizes voice commands.

4.     Sweden

This picturesque country will be home to you and your pup in the next few days if you make your travel plans now. The climate is ideal for your pup in the warmer months and dogs are allowed in public transport. In some parts of Sweden, you will come across food bowls and water dishes for pets. So, get ready to explore the rugged coastline or the sites in the modern-day Stockholm.

5.     Great Britain

This is an advanced country that makes dogs and pets feel protected. Pets are welcome in trains across the country, and you can easily plan your trip with your dog. With your dog, you can discover the most amazing historical treasures like medieval castles, prehistoric sites, and ancient forests. How about a chance to visit Wales, England, Northern Ireland, as well as Scotland? You just may get back home with an accent!

Dog Travel Tips with Pet Jets – Can Our Dog Eat That?

Dog Travel Tips! Can our dogs eat that? This is a great article, especially for pet owners when traveling with Pet Jets and are on the go!

For most people feeding your dog is simply a matter of grabbing the dry kibble, putting some water in the bowl and hope that your pup loves it.

There is, however, a new movement of feeding dogs a raw diet or supplementing their diets with fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat. Of course, dogs evolved from wolves, and therefore they enjoy a diet high in protein, specifically meat based products.

For many of us, knowing what human food to feed a dog can be a challenge. A diet that’s high in fat, sugar, and fillers is bad for dogs and us so what should we feed them unhealthy food? Luckily Pet Gear Lab has produced a super handy chart which you can download, print out and stick on your fridge. It lists all the common foods which you can freely feed your pup and those which you should feed moderately, or avoid altogether. It’s handy for kids or elderly parents to refer to when they feel like giving your pets tit bits.

This is what it looks like:

Can dogs eat oatmeal, lobster or apples

Head on over to Pet Gear Lab to grab the download and let us know how you’re getting on with introducing human food into your dog’s diet.
