Top Tips for Travel with your Tail Wagging Friend

A worried dog in the car can be a big distraction for the driver.  Whether you have a nervous Nellie, or an overanxious pup, there are many tools to help you and your dog have a safer and happier trip.

Safe and Sound

The first thing to put into use when traveling with a dog is a good seat restraint.  This prevents the dog from moving around in the car and distracting the driver.  One of the best parts about car harnesses are the options that you have.  Many small dogs like to be able to see out the window as you travel.  The Lookout Consoles are a great option and allow your dog the ability to see out the window, and be safely locked into the attached leash.  If your dog is big enough that he can see out the window without the required assistance of a booster seat, the Over the Head harnesses are one of my favorite options.  These harnesses have a loop that you simply slip the seat belt through and your dog is set!  They can also double as a regular walking harness to make the transition from seat belt to leash easy!

Eat, Drink, and be Doggy

Now that we have the issue of safety covered, don't forget that your dog has to eat and drink while on your trip.  Travel bowls are a great way to give your pet something to dine out of and then fold back up for easy storage.  Of course with food in his belly he will have to do his doggy business; with our line of Dog Waste Supplies, cleaning up after your beloved pet has never been easier! 

Up, Up and Away!

Maybe you aren't planning on hitting the road with your pooch, but rather soaring the skies!  Of course not every pet is destined for flight, but if you choose that is where you are headed, check out our Airline Approved Dog Travel Supplies!

I think you should add how important it is to have a leash attached to your dog before opening your vehicle's door, even if its to get out to pump gas. No matter how well behaved or docile your pet may be, it may be startled by a noise or see a another animal and bolt. The last thing you want to do on a trip is to lose your beloved pet.
