Taiwan is an interesting country with a lot of things to do. It is a place worth visiting, and like any other, it is even better when you experience it with your best friend by your side. So whether you have decided to go on an Asian road trip or if you are moving to Taiwan, it is important to know what you can and cannot do there, and how you can make the trip and the whole experience more pleasant for your beloved pup.
When you first arrive in Taiwan, you will probably not have an apartment you can settle in. You also need somewhere to sleep and rest and leave your stuff before you go out to explore this amazing island. Luckily, Taiwan has a lot of reasonably priced dog-friendly hotels and hostels you can lodge in, and these places are great for a short-term stay. So, do some research online before you arrive and book a room or a suite in a hotel to make sure you and your canine traveling companion have a place to stay while you are looking for something more permanent.
Put your pup on a leash, bring some treats with you, and hit the streets of Taipei! There is a cool new dog park that opened recently that will surely be loads of fun for your pup and you. When you arrive in Taiwan, tired and beaten, after you’ve had a good rest, you can have some fun in this lovely dog park and make some Taiwanese canine and human friends while you’re there. Dog parks provide loads of entertainment at little to no cost. What’s even better is that this dog park is really close to Taipei Zoo, so when you get tired of jumping around and playing, you can take a relaxing stroll through the zoo and look at some cute animals!
Once you have had your dog park fun and have a nice place to go back to, you can finally go and take a relaxing tour of Taipei or another city you are in. There is nothing better than discovering little alleys, hidden nooks and corners, and figuring out what the locals like in their own city. You can always stop another fellow dog owner on the street and ask them for advice, and they will surely point you to something fun and dog-friendly you can go and check out. So, be a tourist for a while and soak up all the beauties of the place you are currently in, as you will remember it forever, and your dog will undoubtedly love exploring new scents and corners of the world. Exploration is free, and the benefits of learning are priceless!
Find a dog-friendly restaurant in the area and have a relaxing snack or even a full lunch with your best bud by your side. Get some delicious Asian treats for your doggo, but try to give them just a little bit, mixed with their regular food to allow them to get used to them.
After a long day of walking around and exploring, have a relaxing night in your hotel room and cuddle with your amazing pup. They will get used to the new country easier if you are patient and gentle and provide a lot of love for them!
As you can see, Taiwan is quite an interesting country both for short term and long term visits, but no matter how good it is, it is even better if you have your best friend by your side. Ease your dog into the new environment and be there for them, try to make every day interesting and allow them to explore their surroundings to get more familiar with them, and we guarantee that your lovely doggo will fall in love with traveling just as you did!
