Prepare your dog for a holiday by the North Sea with our guide. From rules to health checks and training, ensure an unforgettable holiday for both of you.

Going on holiday to the North Sea with your dog can be a great experience for both of you. But it also requires some preparation to make sure your dog is ready for the adventure. Here's our guide on how to best prepare your dog for a holiday by the North Sea.

1. Check dog rules: Before you head out, it's important to research the dog rules at your destination. This includes the accommodation, beaches, attractions, and public transport. It's also important to be aware of local leash laws.

2. Health check: Make sure your dog is up to date with vaccinations and has had a general health check before your trip. It's also a good idea to have a vet near your holiday destination, just in case of emergency.

3. Adapting to travelling by car: If your dog is not used to driving, it's a good idea to take them on shorter trips before the big journey. Always remember to give your dog access to fresh water and regular breaks on long journeys.

4th Packing list: In addition to the usual items such as food and a leash, there are several things you should bring for a holiday by the North Sea. This includes towels (to dry your wet dog), a first aid kit, toys, and dog bags. If your dog uses a specific type of bed or blanket, you may also want to bring it along to help your dog feel more at home.

5. Training: Being in new places with many new impressions can be stressful for some dogs. Basic obedience training, such as coming when called, can be invaluable on holiday. Also consider training your dog to be alone in a new environment if you plan to leave them alone at the accommodation.

Preparing your dog for a holiday by the North Sea may require a little extra effort, but it's well worth it. With the right preparation, you and your dog can enjoy a fun, safe and unforgettable holiday together.
