Want to show your pet around? Here are 5 useful tips for road trips with pets

Pets are the key to happiness. While traveling, you don’t feel like leaving them behind unattended. Traveling with pets comes with a lot of challenges and to make it a little easier, here are a few things to keep in mind.

 

Make a safe space for them

Dedicate a safe space for your pet in the car. On the bumpy roads, you don’t want your pet to get hurt. Keep the crate or carrier secure and well-ventilated. Also ensure the space is big enough for your pet to comfortably relax and sleep in it.

 

Make them familiar with environment

Train your pet beforehand for the journey. Take them on short drives first to see how comfortable they are and slowly increase the distance. You can also try to make them adjust to the carrier by getting them used to it at home before the journey.

 

Be prepared with a pet traveling kit

This kit could include food, grooming essentials, medication, leash, plastic bags and maybe a toy for it to play with. Calculate and enough food for the entire trip, or maybe pack a little extra. Keep this kit in the car at all times to ensure that there’s no discomfort to you or your pet.

 

Take frequent breaks during the trip

Constant driving may not only bore you but your pet too. Stop and have frequent breaks and take them outside the car for fresh air. Maybe play around with them a little so the journey doesn’t seem monotonous and uncomfortable for them.

 

Always keep treats and water handy

To ensure the comfort, you need to ensure that your pet is not hungry or thirsty. Keep them well hydrated for the trip and feed them when they start to feel uneasy. This will also keep them engaged and happy and may the drive joyous.

 

Your pets deserve to see the world and it’s on you to make their trip memorable. Happy traveling!

  1. Hi, I have a cat: Socrates for over 10 years and I have spent well over $9,000 during that period. He’s a snowshoe, 1/2 Simese and 1/2 American Shorthair; kidney failure is a trait. I’m asked: why did you save him, I said; he’s like a child that you adopt, he’s your responsibility; he didnt ask to come to you: you adopted him!!!
    I have hospital and sickness for him and they think, that I am nuts!!! He’s getting older now and has to have SPECIAL food and meds. He’s more loyal and a better friend, than some of my so called friends!!!! I do all the things that you say, because; like a child, he depends on you!!!
    SEXXY, is so dependable and loves me; he’s ALWAYS THERE FOR ME!!!! IVE had over a million $ worth of surgery and had to take 400mg. of morphine @ 6 hours, didnt want to take that , Socxy : was the only reason that I didn’t kill myself!!!I’m 73 now and my only worry is, who will care for him after I am gone!!! He’s my life and I don’t ever, see him as just a cat; he’s my family and we love each other. I am on a fixed income now and I spend more $ on him than I do on myself a month: so if I have to cut back on anything; it won’t be Socx!!!!
    We as supposedly, the most intelligent of the animal kingdom are most times: the most stupid and cruel !!! I was given Socx , by a lady friend, after we broke up: he’s the best thing that ever happened to me. Without Socx, there’s no ME and I hope, that he goes before I; that way , I’ll know that he’s always been given the best treatment and was loved, with all my heart; one never knows love, until they have an animal!!! He knows how much I love him and I know how much he loves me and it’s unconditional!!!!
    I hope that people start to respect and love their animal(s) , as they are loved by them!!! If I had any money; I d leave it to the shelters for animals and kids; they’re the reason, that a lot of older people: love, care, understand the importance of having them in their lives: SO GIVE THEM, THE CARE AND WHATEVER YOU NEED TO, IN ORDER FOR THEM TO HAVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE, THAT THEY NEED, AS DO WE…!!!♥️😉👑😹🙊😻🐈🐱🌹🌻🐭🐧
