The Ultimate Guide to Traveling in a Campervan with Your Dog: Unleash Adventures with VDUBLINE

Embarking on a campervan journey with your furry friend can be a rewarding and unforgettable experience. With the freedom to explore the open road and create lasting memories, traveling with your dog opens up a world of possibilities. Here’s the ultimate guide to making the most of your campervan adventure with your canine companion.

1. Pre-Trip Preparation: Before hitting the road, ensure your dog is up-to-date on vaccinations and has a comfortable collar with ID tags. Pack essentials like food, water, medications, favourite toys, and a familiar blanket to provide a sense of home in the camper.

2. Safety First: Invest in a quality harness or seatbelt restraint to keep your dog secure while driving. Familiarize them with the camper before departing to reduce anxiety during travel. Ensure proper ventilation and never leave your dog alone in a hot vehicle.

3. Choose Pet-Friendly Destinations: Plan your route with pet-friendly stops along the way. Many campsites, parks, and outdoor attractions welcome dogs. Research leash laws and pet policies beforehand to avoid any surprises.

4. Create a Comfortable Space: Designate a cosy spot for your dog inside the camper, complete with bedding and their favourite toys. Stick to their routine as much as possible to minimize stress.

5. Exercise and Exploration: Prioritize regular exercise and bathroom breaks for your dog during stops. Explore nature trails, beaches, and dog parks together to keep them happy and healthy.

6. Health and Hygiene: Maintain your dog’s hygiene with regular grooming and flea/tick prevention. Keep a first aid kit on hand for any minor injuries or emergencies.

7. Enjoy the Journey: Embrace the spontaneity of campervan travel and cherish each moment with your dog. Capture memories through photos and take time to relax and unwind together.

"VDubline were so so great. I honestly couldn’t recommend this company anymore. They were friendly and professional in all aspects. Made the whole process for renting the vans enjoyable and exciting. We had a fab time and I will most definitely be going back for more adventures from these guys and their amazing vans"

Rosie Egan

"Had another few days with Betsy, on my own this time. She is so easy to drive and to operate that I felt quite happy taking off for my own little adventure. If you are thinking about it, do it. When you hit problems (like how to put the wing mirrors in, where to put the diesel in, how to lock the van from within at night so that the alarm doesn't go off when you move) you just ring Alex for help - or google the How To video and watch it properly"

Jacqui Grant

"From start to finish dealing with Alex at Vdubline was a real pleasure.Prior to pick up we received a video all about the van and how to operate it, which he covered again when we collected the immaculately clean van.Van drove superbly and was surprisingly comfy in spite of sleeping 3 adults.The equipment is maintained to the highest standards and we had no issues over the 3 nights we used the van.Return was just as smooth and efficient and we would definitely recommend Vdubline as excellent value for money.Thanks team."
