Traveling with the Dog – Stockholm Edition

P1020994So how was it – traveling with man’s best friend? Well, I got to say I’m glad I tried it, but I don’t think my chihuahua will be a world traveler anytime soon. πŸ˜€

I decided to list some pros and cons I discovered during our week in Stockholm. I guess the most important thing in traveling with your pet is that your pet is social and fine with the situations. But after this trip, I guess it all might be a bit too much for mine.

Let’s start with pros:

+ You won’t miss you your dog, because he’s with you!

+ You get different experiences when you have to think your trip the dog friendly way

+ It might be easier to get contact to locals as you have a dog as ice breaker

…And the cons:

-It’s stressful and more work: customs, vaccinations, dog might be stressed…? Even when you want to get a taxi you have to make sure dogs are allowed.

-Is the apartment/hotel/cabin dog friendly? You might have to start your vacation cleaning the place so your four legged friend won’t get anything suspicious to eat/chew!

-It costs more money: You might have to pay ticket for your dog too or get a vaccination/medication before/during the trip, like we did.

Also summer time would be better to travel with a dog – then you can just hang out outside too!
