Tips for Traveling With a Dog & Keeping Them Calm on Vacation

Updated: May 7, 2024

Travel Prep

If your pet is coming with you on your trip, there are a few quick tips you will want to know!

First, always give CBD at least 30 minutes before you begin traveling.

Second, if you are only giving CBD situationally or your pet has high levels of travel anxiety - be sure to give a slightly higher dose for it to be effective.

Last, choose a CBD product that will work best for your pet. The hearts, soft chews, or peanut butter are all great for on-the-go care!

Absence Preparation

Regardless of who is watching your pet while you’re gone, you should have a few things prepared before you leave.

Be sure you have your emergency/vet contact info, enriching toys, and CBD on hand.

You may even want to leave your pet with some comfort items like their favorite blanket/bed and some of your clothes to sleep with! If this is a horse we're talking about, then we may want instead to leave them with a supply of their favorite snack, or anything else in your arsenal that can help a horse feel more comfortable in boarding.

Using a Sitter

Whether your sitter is someone your pet is familiar with or a new face, there are certain steps you can take to help your pet in your absence!

Be sure your sitter knows your pet’s routine, not just limited to walks and mealtimes, but to treat times, CBD dosages, and more all to provide them as much normalcy as possible.

If your pet isn’t familiar with your sitter, try to see if you can have a meet-up before your trip. Give your pet CBD before this meeting so they have the most calm and positive experience possible!

Using a Boarding Facility

Pets can become stressed from the new environment of even the best boarding facility! CBD can help alleviate stress and anxiety and can lead to a more calm, peaceful boarding experience for both the dog, cat, horse or other animal, and of course the employees of the service.

Be sure to leave detailed information for the staff so they know how much CBD to administer and when to provide it. While your pet can’t overdose on CBD, giving less than they are used to may interfere with them getting the maximum benefits from their CBD.
