Taking Your Dog On Vacation: Considering The Climate by Anita …

Spending more time with our canine companions from time to time is something we would all love to do, especially if we have to work long hours during the course of the year. This is just one of the reasons why you may want to take your dog on vacation. However, there is more to consider than you may think. Planning a vacation does not just involve simply transporting your pooch and booking dog-friendly accommodations. Instead, you first have to consider how the climate of your destination will affect your dog.

Climate change is more important to your dog than to you when you are going on vacation. For example, if you live in a cold climate and take your dog on vacation in a tropical climate, then he or she will really struggle to adapt to the climate. The same may be true when going from a tropical climate to a cold climate. This will indeed make your pet irritable and can cause the whole experience to be a bad one for both of you. If you plan to take your dog on vacation, then think carefully about this because your time could be best spent together elsewhere.

The best possible solution to this issue is choosing a destination that is very similar in climate to your home. Dogs can get used to the natural change of seasons at home, so a slight rise in temperature is fine but a huge difference in temperature can cause problems because your dog may not be able to cope with it. With a natural fur coat to keep warm, overheating would not be a pleasant experience, so take your dog on vacation closer to home or with a similar climate if you want to have a stress-free vacation for both of you.
