pet? Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But, before you starting stocking
up on snacks and summer clothes, you had better think of how well
your pet is going to adapt to travel. Ask yourself three simple
Will your pet be welcomed at your destination?
your pet actually travel well?
your pet in good health?
these questions answered, you can decide whether travel is the best
option. If it is not, then you should consider a kennel or pet-sitter
instead. Do not force your pet to come with you simply because you
want the companionship; put his interests first. If travel is possible,
however, you must begin preparing your dog well before the intended
by taking your dog for short car trips; accustom him to the idea
of riding. With each trip, drive for longer periods of time. This
way, by the time your actual trip arrives, your dog will be prepared.
It is also recommended that, during these trips, you restrain your
dog the same way he would be during your vacation. Whether you intend
to keep him in a carrier or a dog seatbelt, you should let him get
used to his confinements. This will also allow you to see if he
can even take any of these restraints so, in case he cannot, you
can try different tactics.

and food bowls, grooming equipment, any medicine, favorite toy,

for everything. While having your pet with you can be a wonderful
thing, it can also be hazardous. You must beware of the potential
dangers– and losing your pet is one of them. Take care to have
all identifications possible (tags, papers, etc). Be sure that these
identifications include your name, address and phone number.
the day of your trip arrives, be sure not to let your dog eat three
hours before leaving; also give him a long walk just before you
begin. This will help him be comfortable if he is forced to be confined
for long periods of time. During the trip, provide your dog with
lots of fresh water and stop often to give him exercise. Snacks
can also be used as a treat.
