Traveling With Your Puppy

Traveling with Your Puppy

It is a good idea to start traveling with your puppy while he is young, so he will be used to traveling at adulthood. Plan if you are going on a long trip. It your dog or puppy isn't accustomed to riding in the car, here are a few tips on how to make it more comfortable for both of you.

Sit in the car with the dog, playing with him and gibing him a treat. 

Take a few short rides before any long trips. 

Taking your dog for a walk or playing in the yard can help to calm your pet before a trip.

Always keep proper identification and current tags on your puppy.

Always keep your dog on a leash, even if he normally responds to voice commands, as he may spook in new environments. 

Take along an adequate supply of your dog's regular food and medication, as well as bowls, waste pick-up bags and a jug of cold water.
