travel dog tips

My dog loves to travel with me. Whether it’s a quick car ride to the store or a full-day road trip up north to my mom’s house, my rear-view mirror is always reflecting that little blonde, big-eyed face and a frantically wagging tail in the backseat.

As much as I hate constantly vacuuming my seats to get rid of dog fur, I continually bring her along for the ride because I know getting out of the house for walks and mini vacations is an important part of a healthy dog’s active lifestyle.

Unfortunately, traveling with a pet isn’t always easy. Frequent potty stops, food and water storage, transportation of crates and carriers, and coping with nervous pets can sometimes make it all a discouraging ordeal.

But before you give up and start dialing your local pet kennel, take a look at these nifty travel accessories that will make vacationing with your pet anything but difficult, leaving you with more time to focus on having fun.
