Ah, pets! They’re our furry friends. They keeps us warm on cold nights and make us laugh when we’re feeling down. It’s no wonder many Americans are taking to RVing because of the flexibility it offers, along with the ability to easily travel with your pets. When you have a house on wheels, whether you have a dog or cat, you can take your pets with you pretty much wherever you go. But planning to travel with furry friends still takes a little forethought.
Here are 3 tips for RVing with pets.
Bring Enough Food
Animals throve on routine. Don’t mess theirs up by forgetting to bring enough food and having to get them something they aren’t used to. It’ll upset their stomaches and make a big mess for you to have to clean up. Instead, bring enough food along and research places nearby that sell the brand of food you feed your pet to ensure you always know where to get it from.
Most RV parks and National Parks want animals leashes if they’re going to be there. This helps protect your animal from traffic and local wildlife from trouble. Read any RV forum and you’ll hear horror stories of cats going after native birds. Not good. Keep everyone safe by ensuring you have enough leashes on hand to keep your pets taken care of and even loan one to someone nearby if they need it.
Always Have Water
You never know where the open road might take you. With that in mind, it’s important that you always, always, always have water with you for both you and your pets. You don’t want to get caught in a heat wave and not have anywhere to go within miles without water. Instead, be prepared and ensure everyone has a gallon of water available to them at all times. Once you’re hooked up at the park, you won’t have to worry.
