Tips for Traveling with Your Corgi

Tips for Traveling with Your Corgi

If you are planning an upcoming trip or vacation and will be bringing along your four-legged friend along, be sure to take the necessary steps to ensure they have a safe trip.

Before traveling with your Corgi, take a trip to the vet to ensure they are completely healthy and are up to date on all vaccinations. It is also a good idea to ask your vet for a recommendation of another vet nearby where you will be traveling. While you never want anything bad to happen, it is best to have this information in case of an emergency.

With the veterinarian trip out of the way, you can begin packing things to make your Corgi’s trip easy.

Next, ensure that their collar and ID tags are intact and up to date. 

Be sure to have a crate that comfortably fits your Corgi along with their favorite blanket and a small toy.

Traveling Methods 

Whether you will be traveling by car or by plane you will need a crate to easily transport your puppy.

If you are traveling by car, be sure to stop for regular bathroom breaks and exercise.

If you are traveling by plane, you will need to present a certification of health to your airline. You can acquire this from your veterinarian.

Be sure that your airline can accommodate your dog (this is something you should check in advance to avoid any delays to your trip).

What to Pack 

Be sure to pack their favorite toys, snacks, and blanket to keep them occupied during the flight.

Here are a few other items you should bring:

  • Medications
  • Water 
  • Grooming supplies 
  • Bed
  • First Aid Kit
  • Waste Bags 

Traveling for anyone can be hectic, and it can be even harder for pets that don’t understand what is going on. Be sure to comfort your Corgi and try to make them feel relaxed.
