James Middleton’s Dogs
Like many of the members of the royal family, such as Queen Elizabeth II and Meghan Markle, James Middleton is a huge dog lover. His social media is full of adorable pup photos. He currently has six dogs: Ella, Zulu, Inka, Luna, Mabel, and Nala. He even revealed that Ella saved his life by comforting him during dark times.
To give back to other dog lovers, he created a dog food company called Ella & Co. He also started writing blog posts on the website to provide beneficial information to fellow pet parents. One of his recent posts is about going on vacation with your dog. Many people find traveling with dogs tricky, but Middleton knows it wouldn’t be the same without them.
“I love traveling with my dogs and making new memories with them in exciting places,” Middleton wrote. “More dog owners are thinking about dog friendly holiday destinations as a wonderful way to bond with their pets. You no longer need to leave your dog behind! Traveling with them is a great way to enjoy a change of scenery with your four-legged friend.”
One of his favorite adventures with his dogs is biking. He has a large basket in front of his bike that fits all six of his dogs inside. He shared videos of the dogs in the basket on Instagram, and they clearly adore going for bike rides. Sometimes, you just need to get creative to make sure your dogs don’t have to be left behind.
Tips for Canine Traveling
In addition to sharing cute biking videos, Middleton also gives dog lovers traveling advice on his blog. He discusses topics like where to stay, what to bring, and how to plan ahead.
Here are some tips from Middleton’s blog:
- Choose a location that your dog will love – would they prefer a quiet cottage or a busy campsite?
- Find out if the place enthusiastically welcomes dogs or just allows them.
- Become familiar with local vet clinics in the area you’re traveling to.
- Brush up on basic training, like “sit” and “stay,” to help keep your dog calm.
- Along with the usual essentials, bringing a dog first aid kit is a great idea.
- If possible, make lots of stops during the trip there so your dog can stretch and do their business.
By planning ahead and keeping these tips in mind, vacationing with dogs can be exciting and manageable. For more advice, you can see Middleton’s full blog post. Not every dog will enjoy traveling, but it can be a great bonding experience for you and your pup!
