Whether you’re having a road trip to an old friend’s house this winter or just a fun day out, it’s important to know, as dog owner, what’s best for travelling in the car, because we all want to take our pooches on holiday!
Before you leave
“You’re for sure are going to need your Gencon All in One dog head collar, of course and a collar or ID tag, as you might be going quite far from home. You’ll also need food, water and bowls, and a sufficient amount of it, to help you through the journey. Any blankets and toys will be your best friend on this journey because there’s nothing worse than your pooch being bored! Also bring along washcloths and disposable wipes, as if you read in our last post, pups can sometimes end up in the muddy puddles!
When in the car
You’ll need to make sure that you’ve taken your dog on a long walk so hopefully they sleep for the whole journey, and you’re also hoping the kids will do the same thing! Even if your dog is a happy traveller, it shouldn’t be allowed to roam free within the confines of your car. That could be very bad for your dog in the case of an accident . Dog crates are great for car travel, assuming that the size of your dog isn’t a limiting factor. A harness that is fastened to a seat safety belt is a great alternative. It provides the dog some freedom, but restrains the dog in an accident. Be sure to buy a harness that’s specifically designed to be used with safety belts.
Prepare for fun
It’s often said that dogs are man’s best friend. With the proper equipment and with planning, there’s no reason to leave your best friend behind when you’re travelling. “- Love That Pet
