Bull Dog Owners

Complete Info about the English Bulldog
One of the downsides of vacation time for most dog owners is the difficulty of finding an appropriate solution for their pet while they are away.
So why not taking your favorite pet with you on vacation ? Traveling with your dog should not be too much of a problem if everything is planned well ahead and if you keep some basic dog etiquette rules in mind.
One important thing to watch out for is that some countries may have breed-specific laws or quarantine rules applying to dogs.
Some basic dog etiquette rules for dog owners traveling with their pet:
- always call ahead to make sure the place you are staying allows dogs. Only travel with a dog that is comfortable around other people, especially children.
- always keep your dog leashed and under your direct supervision. Always clean up after your dog.
- upon arrival in the hotel or establishment, ask in which areas dogs are allowed (lobby, restaurants ?). Never leave your dog alone in the room. Some dogs may have unsuspected reactions when left alone in unfamiliar room, especially when housekeepers enter the room.
