3 Essential Small Dog-Friendly Travel Tips

Most of us love to travel. It's that time away from work where we get to see new places, eat amazing food, learn about different cultures, and so on. Of course, sometimes we're traveling to visit family or for a work-related event. In any case, having your beloved dog along with you is sure to make things more interesting. 

Traveling with dogs is a mixed bag. On one hand, it's great having your best friend with you, especially when you get to have fun and explore new places together. On the other hand, a dog can complicate things if you're not prepared ahead of time. Make the most of your traveling experience with these three dog-friendly travel tips:

1. Bring the Essentials

If you want your furry friend to have a fun and comfortable time traveling with you, there are a few essentials you should remember to bring. The first is a collapsible water dish. Its portability allows you to give your dog a drink of water no matter where you are, whether it's on a walk, in the car, etc. This is especially important for French bulldogs, who can get tired if they're out in the sun too long (all the more reason to buy French bulldogs from a reputable breeder).

You should also bring along your dog's favorite toys and maybe one or two new ones to keep them busy throughout the trip. They'll also appreciate some snacks here and there, so be sure to keep a few on you at all times!

2. Avoid Hotel Pet Fees

Make sure to plan out your lodging well in advance when traveling with a pet. The reason? You may be surprised to learn that a significant number of hotels charge unreasonable pet fees and ask for deposits. Many don't allow pets at all! If you'd like to avoid having to pay these unfortunate fees, do your research ahead of time to find more pet-friendly establishments. Many pet owners opt for Airbnb, where there's typically more variety and direct contact with the homeowner themselves.

3. Purchase a Pet Carrier

Pet carriers are perfect for people traveling with smaller dogs up to 40 lbs. They function like a backpack that you can comfortably carry your dog with. They come in all different colors and styles, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding one that looks cute (especially once it has your dog in it).

A major benefit of bringing a pet carrier with you is that you don't have to worry as much about your dog getting fatigued. If you want to go on a walk or visit some shops but aren't sure your dog is up to the challenge, you can take them for a ride in your adorable pet carrier backpack.

French Bulldogs Are Amazing Travel Partners

If you're wondering where to buy French bulldogs, look no further than Jurupa Valley's Royal Empire French Bulldogs. As a family-owned and operated business, we've spent the last 20 years breeding healthy, purebred, AKC-registered French bulldogs. Frenchies are sweet, intelligent, and loyal, making them great travel companions. 

That being said, Frenchies that aren't taken care of properly from birth could potentially end up with health issues that could make traveling difficult. That's why our puppies are DNA-tested for genetic diseases AND socialized from a young age. We're dedicated to giving our Frenchies all the attention and care they need before joining their new family. That's how we've built our reputation as one of the best places to buy French bulldogs in the United States.

If you'd like to have a French bulldog with you on your next road trip or have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact us. You can reach us by calling (714) 306-8656, emailing at royalempirefrenchies@gmail.com, or through our online form.

We hope to hear from you soon!
