Taking your pet to the campground is a great way to save on your travel expenses because you don’t have to worry about boarding your pet while you’re away. Additionally, it’s a great way to ensure you can give you furry friend a chance to stretch their legs and enjoy the great outdoors. Learn more about traveling with pets in with these easy RV tips.
Ensure the Road Trip is Safe
First, you’ll want to ensure your pet is safe while you’re on the road. No matter what type of pet you’re bringing to the campground, never allow them to ride in the RV while you’re on the road. If you are towing a travel trailer or fifth wheel, your pet needs to be in the vehicle with you, safely secured. If you’re in a motorhome, bring a crate for them to lay in while you’re on the road.
Pack Comfort Items
Visiting a new place is exciting for your whole family, pets included, but all the excitement can be overwhelming and lead to behavioral issues. One way to keep your pet’s anxiety down is to bring along some of their favorite things from home. We recommend bringing a familiar blanket or pet bed, a couple of toys, and their favorite food and treats.
Don’t Leave Them Alone
Lastly, most campgrounds will not allow you to leave your pet in your RV while you’re away from the campsite. Be sure to plan outings to locations where your pet will be welcome. This is may seem like an added difficulty to planning your days away from the campsite, but it can be a great way to explore places you might have missed otherwise!
