Tips for Traveling with Your Dog

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.
