A luxurious and relaxing holiday can be the highlight of the year. Sun, sea, sand and the perfect space to make long lasting memories. So who wouldn’t want to bring their four-legged friend along for the luxury villa holiday fun?

If you’re thinking of travelling with your canine, there are a few things you’re going to want to bring along. At Chelsea Dogs, we have made this handy list to save you precious preparation time so that you can focus on other important things, like what swimsuit to pack and where your other flip flop is hiding…

First things first, and we want to ensure that while en route to paradise your dog can travel both safely and comfortably. Try the Ancol Safety Car Dog Harness which is available in four sizes and fits all current car seat belt systems. Not only does it keep your dog safely in their seat, but to optimize their comfort even the harness is padded.

If your pooch will be travelling in the boot then you may want to check out the Pet Rebellion Boot Mate Car Boot Liner which fits most standard boots and comes in super soft luxury pile. Not only is this boot liner comfortable for your pooch to sit on, it also comes in two colours and is machine washable – handy! The gorgeous design makes keeping the boot clean and dry look great.

Once you arrive at your destination and get settled in, your dog is going to need somewhere to rest his weary head. We advise something like the Snug and Cosy Explorer Rectangle Bed which is made here in the UK and is available in five sizes; so we have you covered from your Dachshund to your Dalmatian! With a carry handle and made out of water-resistant polyester this bright and cheery bed is perfect for travelling.

And whether you intend to explore the rolling hills of Andalucía or stroll along the white beaches of Languedoc during your break, you’ll need a lead and collar set for your companion. Consider the Dogs and Horses Colours Collection Leather Dog Collar and Lead Sets at Chelsea Dogs. These contemporary sets are all made of sumptuous real leather with solid brass fittings and are available in five gorgeous colours.

What’s a holiday without some treats? While it may be an extra glass of wine for you, we have some delicious and natural treats for your dog. The 100% Venison Chew Sticks Luxury Dog Treats by Billy and Margot are made in the UK and come in a handy resealable bag – perfect for when you’re on the go! If your pooch isn’t a venison lover, try Lily’s Kitchen Rise and Shines which are organic as well as packed with yummy phytonutrients, Essential Fatty Acids and antioxidants!



Although we know that having your dog along for the fun can be wonderful, it might have occurred to you that he may need to be entertained from time to time. With a plethora of luxury dog toys, we have you covered. If you require something interactive try the P.L.A.Y Wobble Ball Interactive Treat Dispensing Dog Toy, which will keep your dog busy chasing the ball and trying to release the rewards. Alternatively, the Natural Rope Bite Me Bone Dog Toy is a luxury bone shaped rope made from scratch-resistant yute. This durable toy can be used for a game of fetch, tug or a good old chew while you escape to enjoy some pool time.
