Dogs love road trips as much as humans but we have to be EXTRA careful with our furry passengers!
Unrestrained pooches can cause serious damage to them and the driver, especially when they are distracted by their pets.
Here are a few quick tips on how to enjoy a safe, relaxing ride with your pet.
Driving with the window, hairing flowing in the wind can be really refreshing but dogs shouldn't be allowed to stick their heads out the window.
Debris can enter the dog's eyes, which can be very painful.
Making Your Dog Comfy With The Car:
Dogs can associate the car with good and bad feelings. If they only get to ride in the car to go to the vet, they can become very wary of the car.
Allowing them to ride in the car on the way to a play date or dog park is a good way to associate the car with good things.
Keeping your dog busy and behaved is essential.
Preparing a goodie bag filled with towels, food, water, a pet first aid kit and chew toys will have you ready to go for anything that might happen on your trip.
Following these tips can make your drive the best for you and your pooch!
