Here are a few pointers to get you started on planning your vacation with your beloved companion.
Before leaving for the COTTAGE take your dog to the vet for a quick check up and to get all necessary shots and vaccinations. Make sure you have copies of your vaccination records and licenses for your dog. Look into some local vets and keep their telephone numbers with you at the COTTAGE in case of emergency.
Before you venture out with your dog on a 5 hour trek to the COTTAGE take your dog on a short drive around your own home and see how he or she does. If you notice that your dog is not enjoying the drive you may need to contact a vet and see about something that your dog can be given for the long car ride to the COTTAGE.
While vacationing at an ONTARIO COTTAGE RENTAL please make sure your dog is on a leash. There is much wildlife that your dog may be interested in following and if not on a leash you may end up with a lost pet. Another reason for the leash is that a lot of families that are renting COTTAGES are bringing along their pets as well, and not all dogs get along - so having he/she on a leash will take away from the stress of them wondering off to see what other dogs are around.
Please make sure that while you are at your ONTARIO COTTAGE RENTAL that you try to keep your dog from barking a lot. Noise travels across lakes and there is nothing worse than a barking dog to wake you while on vacation at the COTTAGE, so be respectful of others who want to enjoy their peace and quiet too.
Lastly, there is lots of wildlife at the COTTAGE that your dog may not be familiar with. At your ONTARIO COTTAGE RENTAL you and your dog may see raccoons, skunks, porcupines, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, snakes and maybe even a bear. So just be cautious when out exploring this new terrain, so that you and your dog have a safe and enjoyable experience!
