What You Need to Know to Travel with a Dog

TravellerDog.com is a site for people who want to travel with a dog. Traveling with man's best friend is great fun and adds a lot to the trip, but there are some challenges. TravellerDog.com's goal is to be the place to start when you plan a trip with your dog. We hope to inspire you to discover dog-friendly travel destinations, and we give heads-ups about places were traveling with a dog is challenging. 

Planning international travel can be challenging for anyone. For me, it became all that much harder once I got my lovely dog and wanted to factor him into my travel-plans. As a new dog owner planning my first trips for me and my dog, I had difficulties finding the type of information I was looking for. 

In my experience, it was fairly easy to find information about dog passport requirements, vaccination requirements and other bureaucratic necessities for traveling with a dog. But I was wondering things like if I would be able to bring my dog to restaurants when in the destination. And would I be able to find a dog-sitter for a few hours if I wanted to visit a few museums?

Although I did a lot of research, I wasn't able to find all the answers I wanted. But being who I am, I set out traveling with my dog anyway. 

At this point in time, I have traveled a lot with my dog and I get many questions from curious dog-owners who wonder what it's like to travel with a dog. What challenges do I encounter when I travel with my dog? Does my dog like arriving in new places, or does he feel out of his comfort-zone? What is it like to fly with a dog? Where do I and my dog stay during our trips?

Because I now have so much experience in traveling with a dog, I decided to share what I know. On TravellerDog.com, I share the extensive research that I have done about the destinations that my dog and I have visited. I also share my personal experiences and travel-tips.  

On TravellerDog.com you can read in general terms about what it's like traveling with a dog and how to prepare the dog for the trip. We let you know how dog-friendly different countries are and you can find out if dogs are welcome on buses and in restaurants in the destinations we cover. We also provide tips on how to find dog-friendly hotels.

Apart from providing information on how to travel with a dog, Pompe, the world traveling dog, shares his dog travel-stories under the section ‘Pompe’s Blog’.

We hope you like the site and that it makes traveling with your dog more enjoyable and easier, both for you and your furry friend. Happy travels!
