  • Roadtrips with pets

    Whenever we would take our Samoyed dog Bijou on long road trips we would make sure to walk him before so he could get his energy out and go the bathroom. Make sure your dog is micro-chipped and has a collar with tag on to be on the safe side. We made sure to take frequent stops along the journey so we all were happy campers. Dogs are so fun to take on road trips; seeing them delight in sticking their head out the window and explore a new place. I would highly recommend it!

    I've traveled between Illinois and California with my cat many times by car. Usually not a good idea! My cat is so great though. She prefers to relax inside her litterbox, but occasionally will grace me with her companionship along the rout, and even watch the cars. After doing this about four times, it's amazing how she's actually come to recognize different places we frequent along the way, and even gets excited when she seems to know we're almost home! The only hard part is finding pet-friendly hotels, and having to leave my furry baby in car for food and bathroom breaks. (we only travel when the temperature is safe enough to do that though.)

          It is hard to travel with pets, often if you are just going somewhere within your same state. Frequent stops and lots of walks does get you out of the car to stretch your own legs at least.

            Speaking of having your dog microchipped, did you happen to see the story about the lab who was returned to its owners four years later - they were able to locate the dog from its microchip. More successful pet stories: http://bit.ly/heunlX

              This is why microchips are so important. Thank you for sharing this reeseo.

                Even a domesticated dog can get unruly during road trips. I brought my yorkie once on a road trip to Las Vegas and we had to stop once in a while, not for ourselves but for my dog to exhaust his energy. He is such a ball of unlimited energy and fur. It is not a good idea to bring them on road trips where continuation is important.

                  I agree. In addition, make sure you check with your pet's Vet prior to travel. The vet can recommend medicines that can help keep your pet relaxed during journey, as well examine for any issues that may need to be handled first.

                        It is not easy to travel with pets. I have experienced it with my pomeranian with who I had to take 2 days long car trip. It was a herculean task to manage with him. Every time he used to bark and become restless, we needed to stop the car and give him a little stroll on the road, taking me longer hours to cover the distance.

                          Reading earlier replies and I agree - get your dog chipped before traveling! Definitely a necessary added safety measure.

                            Taking your pet along would really be a great idea. As this will be the way you can make your dog feel great. I personally prefer to take them because they add a lot more for your road trip to be more exciting and loving for you.
