Tips for taking your pet skiing
1. Before you go
Make sure you get a pet passport, your pet is microchipped and they are fully vaccinated before you go. This needs to be done over 21 days before you travel. Your pet must be treated for tapeworm in particular and be treated again 1 to 5 days before your return journey to the UK, which means going to a local vet in the resort. Lastly, the mode of transport you to decide to take has to be an approved route and carrier. This is most ferry carriers, the Eurotunnel and specific charter and commercial airlines. A list for these can be found on the gov.uk website under pet travel. Choosing what mode of transport also comes down to your dog's character, if they are easily agitated or are able to endure a long journey. The Eurotunnel may be a better option if your dog gets easily stressed as you'll be with them for the entirety of the journey. But if you decide to drive then you need to take into account stops along the way and getting a car harness for them.
Taking your dog with you skiing may not be the best idea if you are going to be on the slopes from the first lift to the last, unless you have a dogsitter. Keeping your dog cooped up inside all day is not going to result in a happy woofer! Taking your dog on a ski holiday will be a lot more pleasurable for your pooch if you are going for a leisurely holiday so you can come back in the afternoon and take it for a walk.
3. Be responsible
Just because you're in another country doesn't mean all responsibility goes out the window. Pick up your dog's business and make sure you are aware of the resort's requirements with dogs as some may require dogs to be kept on leads.
Just like us, dogs will require more water than usual high above sea level. Make sure you have water on hand when you are out and about with them and also bring their usual food with you as change in diet can really affect them.
