Hi all,

I am new to this forum. I also think that I am an illegal member because I'm not a digital nomad (yet).

I have just started travelling and blogging, visiting a new city for about a week each month then coming home again. The reason I keep coming home is because I have a dog - who I miss a lot when I'm away and I don't want to leave him. He's my little friend and follows me everywhere, and when I am at home we spend all day together.

I would like to be a digital nomad and travel full-time, blogging whilst I go. But in order to do that, I would need to bring my dog with me.

Does anyone know how easy or difficult this would be? ...not only the physical travelling but also the accommodation as well as still being able to explore and see the sights of each country.

Any tips or advice is much appreciated!

It would certainly be easier (and cheaper) to be a digital nomad if I didn't have a dog!

Currently I just find a friend (or use DogVacay/Rover) to watch my dog...but yes, I mis him and he misses me!

It's easiest to travel with a service dog, but it still ends up costing substantially more and can me much less convenient...

Hey Summer, thanks for the reply and for the advice.

I currently have a housemate who can take my dog to work with him. So when I go away I just leave him at home and he pretends to be an office dog for the week. This works really well, but I just miss him so much and therefore don't want to travel full time or be away for too long.

Thinking of getting a campervan and just driving around the globe with him. It sounds so idyllic, but I know it would make things so much harder and less convenient.

Looks like traveling with a pet dog sounds like fun, but challenging. I guess if you are flexible with doing the paperworks, making sure that your pooch is complete with all the needed vaccinations, as well as you have the patience do research with regards to the rules pertaining to this in each country then you'll be fine. I'd also like to bring my pup in the future, but given that I'm a newbie in this field, I'd love to gather more experience first before taking him on my travels! :) I do think that it will test my patience though!

Great that your housemate can easily help out!! I certainly understand missing him because I miss my dog when I'm gone a lot! The longest I have been away from him is 3 weeks and it felt like forever!!

Campervan life is the way to go if you can swing it, do it!! My friend does that with her boyfriend and cat :)

Awesome! Thanks so much! I've just requested to join!

I left for a week last month and was counting down the hours on the last few days! lol

I am wanting to do a road trip around America either 2018 or 2019 for most of the year. Taking him would be the deal breaker because I couldn't leave him for 9-10 months. I know he would be ok, but I would just miss him too much.

If I can get him to America without having to put him in a cage on a plane(maybe if I can take him on a ferry or by car or something) then I'll definitely do it.

...oh and if I can afford it! :lol:

I'm not sure what the rules are for bringing a dog overseas but I think you would have to quarantine for a bit first. If you will be gone 8-9 months I think it would be worth it! Here are a few links for you!

I hope this helps! Also, the dog in a cage on a plane is not a long time compared to how long you would be gone!

Thanks for all the help and advice everyone!

I've got a lot to think about. My road-trip around the US would last about 4-6months. I don't mind the extra planning but I don't want to miss out experiencing something whilst I am there because I have my dog to think about....plus I couldn't leave him in the car - it would get far too hot for him.

I may just leave him at home with my housemate. I know he'll be ok....and I can always Skype him! (sad that I would Skype my dog, but I don't care! lol)
