What to Pack For The Dog - Waggiest Weekend
What to Pack For The Dog – Waggiest Weekend
Some of us are mucky pups, fortunately for my Mam I can stand the sight of mud or water. That being said if I get caught in the rain I’m gonna need a bit of drying (while looking very sorry for myself of course). A towel can also be useful if heading to one of the glorious beaches nearby! Also, dog or baby wipes always come in handy for so many things.
This seems a little obvious, but us furry kind have to stay hydrated and fed. Especially when we’re having a spot of freaky British sunshine! A travel dog bowl and water holder is definitely an essential in my suitcase. I think my humans picked this collapsable one up at TK Max but they’re easy to find online!
You may also want a lil feeding matt to collect any bits of food we might drop (save us snooping in the grass to find it). Lucky Pup Design have a retro stone washed denim and cotton poplin lining place mat. This is the perfect accessory to roll up and take with you wherever you go.
Sorry humans, it’s a dirty job but someone has to do it (usually Dad in our case). Picking up our poo is essential no matter how smelly it is! When staying in a place of beauty such as Top of the Woods, it’s impawtant to keep the site and surroundings clean for the next dogs and humans who visit. We care about looking after our environment, so in my suitcase we’re popping in some biodegradable bags.
Now if you know me, you’ll know how much I love to rock a bow tie or new bandana. However, last time I visited Top of the Woods, I found myself getting a little chilly in the nights. So this time I’ve been searching for a coat to keep me snug, and Lucky for me, I’ve found a beauty! Lucky Pup Design made a tailor made denim jacket for me to rock at the campsite. I even have a reversible wool one to enjoy packed in my case too! Plus, we want to be on fleek for our favourite dog photographer Tom Harper right?
We just love to play! Whether it’s with a tweed and cotton bone like the one from Lucky Pup Design, a tennis ball or your favourite toy. Not only that, but we also love our home comforts. Having my favourite toy or something familiar on hand helps to create a comforting environment. In my suitcase, alongside the lovely bone toy, I’ll be taking my lil squeeky monkey and a Charlie sized tennis ball for chasing. Check out one of our previous blogs with some DIY enrichment games you can even create and bring to keep the brain moving.
So there you have it, my packing essentials. Of course there’s lots more things you could take, I’ve included one or two in my downloadable packing checklist. This list is pawfect for those joining us for the Waggiest Weekend, or for anyone camping or glamping this summer.
PHEW! Now, I’m off for a lil snooze and a bite to eat. All this writing is hard work (and I’m totally due a few treats right?). Check out these holiday snaps from our last trip to Top of the Woods!
