Dog Breeds for People Who Like to Travel

What if you love to travel and want a dog? But then you can bear the thought of leaving them home alone for long periods of time? Well, luckily, if you have a dog that loves to be on the go, you won’t have to worry about leaving them behind.

Here are the top 7 dog breeds we’ve found if you like to travel

  • Chihuahua

There’s a reason you often see this dog out and about. Not only are they a perfect size for traveling, they usually love it too! They don’t require a ton of food and even their sweaters are tiny. A chihuahua can even fit under the seat in an airline, which makes them perfect for flights.

  • Great Dane

Although this huge breed isn’t exactly great for flying, they can be excellent on the road companions. They have an easy going and gentle personality which makes them great at socializing with people and other pets. Just make sure your car and accommodations have enough space for them.

  • Pomeranian

Pomeranians usually love being social and checking out the world around them. Not only do they look great when they are dressed up, they love being enclosed in spaces like strollers and bags.

  • Dachshund

If you’re looking for a fun-sized travel companion, look no further than the Dachshund. They don’t require a lot of grooming or food and they are fairly low maintenance. What’s even better is that they make great watch dogs no matter where you are.

  • Bichon Frise

This breed generally enjoys attention which means they don’t mind meeting new people to pour affection on to them. Also, the Bichon Frise usually adapts well to new environments, making them a spectacular travel buddy.

  • Boston Terrier

Love road trips? Boston Terriers are almost always up for a car ride. This type of brachycephalic breeds (dogs with a flat face and short nose) have been known to have issues flying, but they can love a good road trip. The Boston Terrier is an energetic and social dog; they love to see new things.

  • Labrador Retriever

This is a dog you may not automatically think of as a breed you’d take on long trips, however, a Labrador makes a great sight-seeing companion. They are extremely easy to train and pick up on commands quickly. It helps them adapt to new routines, places and people.

Of course, we all want to travel with our pets if we can, but we can’t always bring them along. If you’re looking for someone to care for your canine while you’re out of town, make sure to contact us.
