Road Trip Tips

Here are just a few of our favorite travel tips to keep in mind:

  • Pack a travel kit with all the essentials: bowls, food, water, waste bags, leash, harness, toys, etc. Don’t forget about emergency supplies like first-aid kits and spare medication.
  • Secure your pet with a ventilated crate or carrier, or consider a specialty harness that clips into your seat belt.
  • Consider going on a short trial run if you haven’t traveled with your pet before. Drive around the block a few times or head to a dog park on the other side of town.
