Leave No Dog Behind -- summer travel tips

Traveling with your pet is one of the most rewarding experiences that a pet guardian can have.

By taking very little effort, you can make a checklist of things to accomplish before leaving for your destination.

No matter the length of your trip, you should always keep in mind the safety and comfort for your child with fur.

Here are a few reminders to make your trip a success:

  • When traveling with pets in extremely hot weather, you will want to make sure the air conditioning functions properly before you hit the road. Water is always a necessity no matter the weather condition so make sure you have plenty on hand for both you and Fido.
  • As far as feeding your pet, you might want to curb the usual amount so as not to create too many pit stops.
  • If you and your pet are the active sort, bring plenty of towels. You can wipe your feet at the door, but so far, to our knowledge, your dog will probably require some assistance to get the mud and gunk from his paws. Besides, if your dog is like most, they really don't mind the mud and gunk but your host will thank you for it!
