about this item
Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher
Lonely Planet's Travel with Dogs is packed full of advice and tips on travelling the world with your dog. The nine chapters cover the essentials of taking your dog on vacation or holiday by car, train, boat or plane, and how to find somewhere suitable to stay.
The handy pocket-sized book starts with giving the reasons why readers will enjoy taking their dog on their travels and how to decide what your dog is capable of. The golden rules of dog travel are listed. Next Lonely Planet provides explanations of what type of vaccinations, health certificates and documents are needed for travel around the Americas, Europe and Australia with a dog.
Then different modes of transport are discussed:
- How to transport your dog safely and comfortably in your car - what to pack, how frequently to take breaks, whether to use a harness or a crate
- How to go camping or RVing on a road trip with your dog (including advice for hiking with your dog)
- How to take your dog on a plane - what airlines are the most pet-friendly, whether your dog can travel in the cabin as carry-on luggage or in the hold, using a crate, clearing security
And finally, there is information on finding dog-friendly places to stay: hotels, motels, B&Bs. Additionally, a listings section features international travel resources for dog-owners plus other sources of information.
This book will help dog owners plan and prepare for travel with their furry best friends, and inspire trips further afield.
