- It's a lot safer for everyone if your dog is securely fastened or confined during car trips. A large dog in your lap or a small one bouncing around the accelerator pedal can be distracting and dangerous--and should you have an accident, your unrestrained dog might be thrown about the cab. Popular options for safe dog travel include dog seat belts, crates, and car barriers.
- Don't forget to microship your dog before leaving home, and attach an ID tag with your cell phone number to his collar. If you're travelling to multiple places during your trip and you don't have a cell phone, you can buy inexpensive temporary ID tags to use along the way.
THINGS TO BRING
- Pack a spill-proof water bowl, your dog's regualr food, and medications he takes and his favorite toys for playing fetch or tug.
- It's also a good idea to bring along something you can use to safely secure your dog for brief periods, such as a crate or an exercise pen.
