Let's Fly! A Vacation Packing Checklist for Your Pup

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

When I brought Bailey home, one thing I was adamant about doing was getting her comfortable with traveling. Before she was one, Bailey had traveled to North Carolina, Virginia, and Oregon. She is an excellent travel companion. She is calm at the airport (as long as she is can see me), and makes herself comfortable at hotels!

And Then There Were Two...

Now that we have Bentley, we are learning how to travel with two dogs, and things sometimes feel a little more complicated. So, in preparation for our upcoming trip to Napa Valley California, I prepared a checklist to ensure I pack everything that we will need for the pups on our trip, and have shared this in an easy printable PDF format for you to use for your upcoming trips.


At the Airport

  • Dog Carrier - Ensure that it meets the specifications of your particular airline carrier. You can verify this by visiting your airline's website and searching for its in-cabin pet policy.
