If you bring your pet along with you on vacation, you will have peace of mind and your pet will love being able to spend more time with you in a new place. Don’t forget to pack these essentials for your pet when you visit the Smoky Mountains!

1. Food and Treats

Packing enough food to last the entire trip is important. Even though there are grocery stores and pet stores around the area, it’s easier and saves you money if you bring your pet’s food from home. You should also bring your pet’s favorite treats too. Having these on you help your pet adapt to being somewhere new. And if you bring these items with you, you will save yourself time because you won’t have to find a store that carries your pet’s specific food or treats.

2. Pet Beddog sleeping in pet friendly Gatlinburg TN cabin

Bringing a pet bed to one of our pet friendly cabin rentals in Gatlinburg TN gives your pet somewhere to sleep at night and a place to lounge during the day when everyone is at the cabin. This is also a great idea to put in the backseat of your car to have your pet sit in while you are driving to and from the cabin.

3. A Leash

It’s just considered common courtesy to have your pet on a leash when you are out, and certain areas require dogs to be on a leash by law. There are a lot of fun things to do with your pet in the Smokies , and having a leash with you makes managing them easier. You can have a loose leash or a retractable one. It really depends on your pet and their personality. Shy pets will tend to do better on a loose leash because they won’t want to be too far from you. More energetic and friendly pets will probably do better on a retractable leash because you can give them some freedom.

Packing a set of food and water bowls for your pet may seem like a no-brainer, but it would be a good idea to bring the bowls your pet is most familiar with. If you are going to do a lot of things out in town, it’s helpful to invest in a collapsible water bowl so your pet can take water breaks throughout the day. Take frequent breaks to let the both of you cool off and remember to get water for both of you!
