Preparing for a Road Trip with Your Dog

Preparing for a Road Trip with Your Dog

Dogs have come a long way from their traditional roles as a household pet. Of course, we still love them for guarding the house and being the furry addition to the family Christmas photo, but they’ve become so much more. There’s nothing quite like the unconditional love our dogs give us. In short, they’ve stolen our hearts — some might even say we live in a dog-obsessed culture. We share living spaces with them — and sometimes our beds — let them play babysitter for our children, buy them stylish wardrobes, rely on them as service animals and love them for being our road trip co-pilots. Following is some important information to follow while preparing for a road trip with your dog.

Dogs are family — and let’s be honest, sometimes they’re even better than our family members, so it breaks our hearts to not share our travel experiences with them. Fortunately, road trips are the perfect way to include our pups on our adventures.

While not all dogs breeds have jet-setting privileges, road trips make for a great way to include our pets and not have to stress the task of finding a trustworthy sitter, or worse, the guilt of leaving them behind. Before you hit the open road with your four-legged best friend, there are some things you need to consider to prepare for a successful and enjoyable trip. Use this dog road trip guide to learn tips and tricks for keeping Fido safe and happy while on the road together.

  1. WOW! I love the infographics you’ve posted here, I’m surprised that there aren’t more people commenting about this. I’ve found that it can be quite the effort getting a dog (in my case a Bernese Mountain Dog) ready for a road trip, but it’s all worth it in the end.

    She loves going on car rides! Thanks for sharing this information! 🙂
