5 Tips for RVing with Dogs

1. Visit the vet

Schedule a vet appointment before your next RV road trip. Make sure that your pet is up to date on vaccinations and is treated for fleas and ticks. Be sure to bring documentation on your trip, as some RV resorts require proof of current vaccinations for pets.

2. Pack for pets

Bring along food and water bowls, leashes, toys, plastic bags (for cleaning up pet waste), medication, and a first aid kit. You may also want to consider bringing a pet carrier and a jug of water for keeping your pet hydrated while traveling.

3. Take your pet for a long walk before hitting the road

If you’re planning to drive, take your dog out for a nice walk before you head out. If you have a fenced area where your dog can run, that’s even better. This helps wear down their energy before a long, often cramped journey in the car.

4. Clean up after your pet

Both at your destination and on the road, be sure to always clean up after your pet. Sun RV resorts with dog parks will have complimentary waste-pickup bags, but it’s a good idea to come prepared with your own bags while traveling.

5. Call ahead, wherever you go

While most Sun RV resorts are pet friendly, other destinations may not be. Be sure to call ahead before visiting national and state parks, beaches, and any other attractions where you might bring your pet.
