Tips for Traveling with your dog this summer

Traveling with your dog:

Visit with your veterinary first to make sure the following is done:

  • Up to date on shots
  • Up to date on flea and tick
  • Have all their medications, if needed, filled and are in good health before leaving
  • A collar with tag on it
  • Anti-slip harness
  • Microchipped

Things to keep your traveling safe and easier:

  • Crate trained already
  • Crate for the car- safety this way they are not climbing over and if there were an accident, they are safer in a crate. My personal dogs travel in a Ruffland kennel as it gives me piece of mind. Also, bringing a crate with is great if you need to contain your dog, such as if you are renting a house and need to leave them unattended.
  • Have extra of their food – in the event you stay longer. Sometimes it can be challenging to find the right food when not at home
  • Know where the ER vets. Are in the areas that you are staying – I recommend pre- programming their numbers into your phone.
  • Bring a first aid kit for dogs
  • Always pick up after your dog- bring extra poop bags
  •  Be on alert for fertilizer or other hazards to your dog when out and about.
  • Just say no to on leash meetings with other dogs
