Tip of the Month: Travel
  • To make traveling with your dog easier, compile a checklist of essentials. This may include basics such as food, leash, pills, bed, training gear, tug toys, and crates. Essentials should also include a copy of his rabies certificate and other vaccinations, as well as some “clean up” materials such as an enzymatic cleaner and paper towels. If staying in a hotel, a nice thing to include is an old sheet to cover the bed. Also, making a checklist for yourself (with such essentials as rain shoes and rain gear for walking the dog) will ensure that you and your dog can travel in safety and comfort.

  • Make a travel-only dog tag that lists your cell phone number or local telephone contact while you’re traveling.

  • Save yourself from embarrassment! Include on your travel checklist a generous supply of poop bags. You should have two to three per day per dog. Poop bags can be tucked into your trunk or a door pocket to keep them handy. And tie one or two around each leash handle so they are there when you need them while walking your dog.

  • Before traveling by car, freeze a few gallons (liters) of your dog’s regular water in plastic gallon (liter) bottles with screw-on caps. Use the ice to chill your cooler, and as it melts, your dog will be able to drink his regular water for your trip.
