dog-in-carBefore traveling with your dog, it's a smart idea to make a checklist of things to accomplish before leaving.
  • Water is always a necessity no matter the weather condition so make sure you have plenty on hand for both you and your dog.
  • Feed your dog less while on the road to avoid frequent pit stops.
  • Bring some towels or rags to clean muddy paws. If you know your dog will jump on furniture or beds, bring a few sheets as slip-covers.
  • Check ahead for daycare and pet sitters before you travel. It's not a good idea to leave your dog alone in a hotel room - a strange place brings out strange behavior and many hotels do not allow you to leave your pet unattended for any reason, kenneled or not.
  • If boarding your dog, bring his health records. There is no admittance without them.
  • Remember the first aid kit.
  • Do not let your dog ride in the back of a pick-up. Road debris can fly up and harm him and in case of an accident, he will have no protection. When traveling by car, use a special safety restraint or place him in a secured kennel. Dogs, like people, can be ejected during a serious car crash.
  • All airlines differ in their policy of flying your pets. Be sure and check policy before planning your trip. Remember, you will probably have to fly your dog as cargo and the weather may dictate what time of year you fly. Be sure to ask the airline if their cargo area is heated or air-conditioned. Temperatures can be extreme. Some airlines prohibit flying your pet during certain times of the year.
  • Bring the usual from home; familiar toys and chewies, water, food, and his dog bed or blanket.
