Dog accessories you need
If you have a family dog and love to travel, you’ll want to make sure you have the necessary dog travel accessories to keep your pet comfortable and happy on the road.
For the most part, dogs love to travel. Now if you have a new puppy it is vital that you work with him young and teach him the love of travel as dogs who are older and have never traveled much can be a bit apprehensive about taking that car journey .
Additionally, there are quite a few things you can do to make your pet more comfortable when you travel
The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure your list of dog travel supplies includes a bed. If you can, bring their bed from home as this is familiar territory and smells and looks familiar to them. This will make them much more comfortable when it’s time to travel. Chances are, they’ll know exactly what the bed is for, curl up and snooze for most of the trip, leaving you with nothing to worry about.
Food and water
You will need to make sure your pet has food and water. They won’t always have food in the vehicle, but you should try to make sure they can have water when they need it. This is especially true if you have a pet that is very nervous about traveling, as they will likely pant a lot and need to take in more water.
There are a number of travel dog supply companies that offer pet drinkers that are made to be carried in the car. They usually have a low water level and are relatively strong and can be fixed in the car so that water does not splash everywhere when you drive
Leash and collar
This should be common sense, but you should always make sure your list of dog travel supplies includes a leash and collar for your pet. There are very few places you can stop along the way that will allow you to off-leash a pet outside and your pet will need to go for a walk to relieve itself during your journey.
So, make sure you have a leash and a collar or harness for your pet so that you can take them out and walk them along the way.
If you have a dog that tends to be aggressive, you may want to make sure you have a muzzle among your dog travel supplies in case you need one. This is especially important if you are stopping at rest areas or restaurants where there are a lot of people and he might get scared and possibly bite them.
Don’t forget to bring along a few of your pet’s favorite toys. You want to make sure that he has items with him that he is really familiar with, preferably ones that he really likes and is most comfortable with as they will make him a little more comfortable and make the vehicle to look a little more at home while traveling.
