Travel tips for taking your dog on holiday
As far as I'm concerened a holiday is not a holiday unless the whole family are there and that includes our beloved pooch.
However there are a few things to remember when travelling with your four legged friends.
- Before you go it's worth finding out where the nearest Vet is, we have phone numbers in the information folder but you may have wished to do your own research before you go.
-If your dog wears a collar it may be an idea to have a holiday tag made up, "I'm staying at Tappit Hoose in Crail, and your mobile number"
-If you use a particular brand of food make sure you bring enough so that you aren't spending a day of your holiday trailing around to find food.
Its best not to feed your dog a big meal just before a long car journey, especially as the roads leading to Crail are undulating and windy, clearing up after your dog isn't the best way to start a holiday!
We are so lucky at Tappit Hoose as the harbour and 3 beaches are within a 5 minute walk from the house in one direction and a big leafy park 5 mins in the other.
The beautiful Kingsbarns beach is less than 10 minutes away by car and that is by far our favourite doggie walk, and if you're lucky the famous Cheesy Toast Shack will be there!
West Sands made famous by the film Chariots of Fire is only 9 miles away.
-If you would like to take your dog with you out for dinner then that is no problem if you head to the East Neuk Hotel only a few doors down, delicious food and sometimes live music too.
Just don't forget your poo bags!
