What to Pack for Your Pet’s Smoky Mountain Adventure

what to pack for your petIf you want to take a mountain vacation and can’t imagine leaving your pet behind, don’t worry. Aunt Bugs Cabin Rentals offers a number of pet friendly cabins in Pigeon Forge near exciting attractions and beautiful scenery. By planning ahead and packing everything they need, you and your family can enjoy a Smoky Mountain trip without any problem.

We know how important pets are to the family, but packing and traveling with a pet can be stressful when the everyone is loading up into an SUV. Most importantly, remember to pack food and a water bowl. A travel water dispenser is a good idea for stops along the way. Another must have is a good leash, and, if possible, bring two.

For your furry friend who sheds, we recommend seat covers. If you don’t crate your pet in the car, even a towel over the seat will help protect the fabric from loose hair. Also, a portable litter box or bags are absolutely necessary to take care of waste. Toys and treats are also good to bring along to keep them entertained during the drive and in the cabin.

When staying in one of our pet friendly cabins in Pigeon Forge, wildlife is a joy of the mountains. Keeping a pet leashed when exploring will keep you from worrying. Though your pet may be well behaved, sometimes a squirrel or rabbit are all pets need to see to try to take an adventure of their own. Leashes are important if you decide to take your pet into the Smoky Mountains National Park as well. If you do decide to take your pet into nature, pet shampoo is a good idea to bring along to rid them of leaves and dirt they might pick up exploring.
