With summer fast approaching, we'll be doing more traveling and so will our pooches.
This past weekend, we took a short overnight road trip which allowed us to take a look at our canine travel gear.
We keep our travel bag partially packed with a few essentials. Adding a few things, we're ready to go!
-- a folder with the pooches rabies certificates, vaccination records, and microchip information
-- enough kibble for a few extra days
-- KONGS, which can be easily stuffed with whatever is around
-- travel dishes
-- can of treats
-- chew toys
-- Wet Ones
-- diapers (just in case)
-- poop bags
-- sunscreen wipes (not pictured)
--Tesla's medication (not pictured)
We have three crates in the house. We take the smaller two with us. And while they are an absolute necessity, they are quite burdensome to lug around. However, with a Subaru Forester, the two crates easily lie in the back.
Of course, for any car ride, the pooches wear their seatbelts. Last summer, we were in a minor accident and were so glad the pooches had their belts on - not only did it keep them from flying forward during impact, it kept them in place during the hoopla afterwards.
There are a few things missing from our kit: first aid kit (one in our travel kit and one in the car) and doggles (for trips to the beach, sticking their heads out the window). We also need a better way to haul the kibble.
What do you have in your travel kit? Is there anything we are missing? How do you haul your kibble?
