How to Take a Road Trip with Your Dog

Interested in taking a road trip with your dog this summer? Having your four-legged friend as a companion promises to be plenty of fun. But before you head out, check out these tips for how to best plan for your furry company on the open road.

 

Practice First

Before you dive in and drive across the country with your dog, try out theirHow to Take a Road Trip with Your Dog company in the car on a smaller scale. Take a two- or three-hour drive and see how your pup does. If they’re relaxed, they’re probably set to adventure with you. If not, they may need some more experience in the car before they’re ready for your cross-country adventure.

 

Plan Your Stops

As your planning your route, you should also plan rest stops ahead of time. Not only will you have to stop more frequently, but your stops will probably be longer than if you were traveling alone. When you stop for a bathroom break, your dog will need more than just a quick stretch of the legs. It’s best to find stops with open areas where your pup can run around and explore. Try to allot at least 20-30 minutes for each stop.

 

Find the Right Car

Taking a large dog in a small compact car might not be the best option. But, if you have a small dog, they might feel overwhelmed in a larger SUV. Make sure you’re taking the right car with you to make your best friend feel as comfortable as possible.
