Vacation Prep: Packing for Pets

It's fly week for us, and as new pet parents, we are anxious about leaving our sweet Gracie for longer than a weekend. 

We know she will be in good hands. We are blessed with friends who have offered to take her for an extended playdate with their own pup, Sasha. 

Nonetheless, we are making a list of everything Gracie and her caregivers might need while we're away. 

Here's what we packed.

  • Her crate and bed: Gracie still sleeps in her crate at night and will often spend time in it during the day, if she will be unsupervised. It's a matter of safety and comfort for our den-loving girl. 
  • Chew toys
  • Her heart worm and flea/tick monthly repellent
  • Her long lead and leash
  • Her favorite treats
  • Her food and water bowl (and food)
  • A copy of her vaccinations and vet information and her pet insurance information, in case of an emergency. 

We're going to miss our girl, but we both know that Gracie is going to have the time of her life. She has had a few play dates already and she and Sasha are now good friends. It puts our minds at ease. 

Pet parents, have we forgotten anything? 

Have fun, Gracie girl. 


  1. So sweet Kelly. Hope Gracie has a good time while you are away and it seems like you've well planned the details!

  2. Maybe throw one of your worn t-shirts in her crate. They are comforted by scent!
