Thinking about hitting the road with your furry friend?
We have some tips for you that will make your journey easier for your and your pet:
- Plan bathroom breaks. Before you leave home, teach your dog to relieve himself on multiple surfaces — not just grass! Having the ability to potty on different terrains, such as concrete, mulch, and gravel, will alleviate his discomfort as well as the possibility of accidents while you’re on the road or otherwise. Bring a supply of bags to clean up afterward and a leash.
- Bring games and toys. To make sure your dog doesn’t get bored, provide him with a few new toys — and a couple of old favourites. You might want to include a puzzle-type toy to keep him occupied.
- Pack food and water. Check with your veterinarian about giving your dog only bottled water while away from home to ensure that he doesn’t get an upset stomach. Talk to your veterinarian before you leave for remedies or suggestions, like this one, of what to do if such a stomach or digestive problem does occur. Also, pack a few days worth of your dog’s food, even if you’re sure you’ll be able to purchase more at your destination. And instead of taking his usual bulky bowls, buy collapsible ones and let him get used to using them one week or so before you travel.
