Dog Friendly Europe: Germany

Ah, Germany. Country of Lederhosen, Würste, Sauerkraut, beer, and a language that I always thought sounded really hard and awful but have come to quite enjoy learning, listening to and occasionally speaking. Well, I enjoy it except for the grammar and word order and changing the adjectives and the cases and the three damn words…

Sweden: Things Loved, Things Lost.

“You should write a post. One about Sweden, one about Germany,” my girlfriend tells me, while we stroll through the Christmas markets of a quaint German town a few hours from her place. I should. I know I should. But every time I try, I falter. I’ve never considered myself a “travel writer” – I…

Vanlife with Dogs: What to Pack

The other day was the four month anniversary since I landed and so Loki and I have our routines down pat now, rain, sun or snow (literally). If you’re thinking about hitting the road with your dog, long term or short term, you might be wondering what to pack. Don’t stress! It’s not as complicated…

One month (and a bit) in… Obviously I’m not a pro (yet) at travelling with a dog, but it has been a bit of a learning curve. I thought while everything is still fresh and shiny and new, I’d write down my experiences. Once I’m an “old hat” at travelling with Loki, things might seem…

Preparing Your Puppy for Future Travel

I’m a member of a Facebook group all about people travelling with their dogs. Sometimes someone asks the question: “What should I do to get my dog ready to travel?” and people provide plenty of useful information, usually telling them to teach sit, stay, etc. However, while I think ‘sit’ is a relatively useful command,…
