WE HELP YOU FIND HOLIDAYS DOG GROOMING FLOYD’S


Top tips for taking your dog on holiday ACCOMMODATION


Check the number of dogs allowed and if there are any restrictions of breed and size. If there is a garden, remember that it may not be secure. Most properties don’t allow you to leave your dog alone, so bear this in mind when planning days out during your stay. You could organise a pet sitter for a day, it’s a good idea to organise this before you go, as they tend to be busy.


VISIT THE VET


It’s a good idea to make sure your dog’s flea, tick and worming programme is up-to-date before you go.


PLAN YOUR JOURNEY


If you are making a long car journey, remember to take a bowl and some water with have plenty of stops along the way.


PLAN YOUR STAY


As well as ensuring the accommodation is suitable, we like to research places to visit, walks to do and places to eat that are dog friendly. There are many cafes and pubs that will happily accept dogs, or if the weather is warm, it’s good to find a nice beer garden.


MAKE A CHECKLIST


Everything that your dog will need such as, food/water bowls, lead and collar, ID tags, dog waste bags, bed, old towels, brushes, toys, treats, enough food for your stay, any medication your dog is on, the list goes on!


GROOMING


If you have your dog professionally groomed, you may want to book an appointment before you go, so they look and smell their best!


If you would like a chat about your dogs’ grooming requirements, or to make an appointment give me a call on 07746 485 330.

COCKERMOUTH TRAVEL Confession!


I must confess that I have sinned again! I forsook my usual May half-term escape and partook of the thing travel agents hate most, the ‘Staycation’! It was hotter here than a snake’s bum in a wagon rut, so having already flown four times this year, it was great to stay at home, invest in a sun lounger and spend the week at Costa notalota Cockermouth! Obviously when it starts to pour down again on 20th July, when the kids break up from school, Cockermouth Travel will have some excellent deals available to escape the rain.


It’s been a busy time for the team in recent weeks!


I was lucky enough to sail on the maiden voyage of the New Norwegian Cruise Line ship ‘Bliss’ and it was amazing. Leanne was on the equally amazing Royal Caribbean Ship ‘Symphony’, Zoe was hosted by Hertigruten on a fab voyage from Halifax, Nova Scotia down the east coast of Canada and New England to Boston. Zoe and Rachel then had a week in a fantastic all- inclusive Sandals Hotel in Jamaica and they said the accommodation, food, cocktails and entertainment were superb. Bethan had a great trip to Western Australia with the Australian Tourist Board, where amongst many things, she swam with whale sharks, went glamping on a beach and sampled many of the regions wines, delicacies and the odd amber nectar. Once over the jet lag, she jetted off for a holiday to Costa Adeje in

Tenerife. Accounts Jackie has been in Venice, Verona and Lake Garda. Julie travelled to Valencia and at the time of writing, Leanne is on a 25-passenger luxury cruise up the coast of Croatia. I am busy planning my next escape to Nashville for The Grand Ole Opry, music and plantations, Memphis to see Graceland and Sun Studios (don’t worry I won’t be singing!) and Fort Myers Beach Florida for a week of R&R.


Please remember, all the above is purely research and no travel agents were harmed in the testing of these holidays and we would all have much preferred to have been in the office!


Reminder!


Many prescription and over-the-counter medicines are illegal in lots of countries. For example, Vick is banned in Japan and Codeine is a controlled drug in Dubai, so check on the FCO website well before you travel, to see what you can and can’t take abroad.


Disappointment!


I was so disappointed along with many customers at the decision to cancel all flights from Carlisle airport until September! The gleaming new terminal apparently didn’t have the staff in place to allow the safe opening of the airport. Fingers crossed they get it right in September and hopefully add some more destinations to the timetable soon.
