Have you ever wondered what you should bring when traveling with your dog? Well we've compiled a list of the top must haves that are essential to travel. Like the one time you had a delay at the airport and needed to have a comfortable spot for your dog to sleep. Or that one time your pup got sick in an Enterprise car and you needed cleaning supplies. Check out the list below for all of your needs.
1.Favorite Dog Bed/Blanket Dogs
Want to be comfortable too, especially on a long car ride. Pack their favorite dog beg or a blanket with you and your homes’ scent. This will help them remain calm and cozy.
2. Lid Locking Container
We all get hungry on car rides, so be sure to pack their food and treats in an easy to get to container with a lid for easy access.
3. Collapsible Water/Food Bowl Pit
Stops are for two things only: water & potty breaks. By using a collapsible bowl, you’ll be able to quickly provide water for your pups and collapse it back down for easy storage.
4. Waste Bags
Chance are you will be exploring places that are both pet-friendly and not pet-friendly. Make sure you are carrying plenty of waste bags for when your pet’s just gotta go!
5. Favorite Toys
Being away from home can worry most pets. By packing their favorite toys, you are keeping their mind off of the travel and more on the fun!
6. ID Tags
Staying safe is key when traveling, so make sure your pets have up-to-date ID tags in case they get lost.
A lot of dogs get nervous or anxious in cars, so you might want to ask your vet for a calming or anti-nausea medicine before hitting the road.
8. Seat Covers
You never know what may happen during a long car ride, so be sure to keep your seats safe with a car seat cover or extra large blanket on top. If it rains during pit stops, you’ll be glad you did!
9. First Aid Kit
Exploring new territories can come with its surprises. If you are traveling far away or to a wooded area, be sure to bring a first aid kit for stings, cuts, or burns. You can never be to careful!
10. Cleaning Supplies
There’s no such thing as clean when it comes to pet, but it is best to always be prepared for accidents or mud when traveling. Back items such as baby wipes, water, and garbage bags to quickly clean up messes.
