Whether you're taking a short day-trip or a month-long trek around the country, dogs can make excellent traveling companions. Here are some tips that will make the drive much more pleasant for both of you:
Get a health certificate and proper ID. Get and keep a copy of his medical record with you.
If your dog isn't used to the car, start taking some short trips and gradually build up to longer and longer trips. Not all dogs like to travel.
Be sure your dogs are welcome in the hotel or motel where you're staying.
If traveling by air, be aware of airline procedures. Different airlines have different procedures for transporting pets.
