Traveling with our dogs

Preparing for a long trip is usually synonymous with excitement, especially when we take a few days off, but it’s true that for the few lovers of the preparation process, it can be tedious: creating a list of what we want to take, packing, and fitting everything in the car, and of course, this includes preparing our dogs’ luggage, as they are part of the family.

We want to give you some tips to make both the preparation and the car journey with our pets smoother and more comfortable for everyone.

Prepare a basic kit for your dog

In addition to food and water bowls, to save space and not carry the entire bag of food, you can calculate the daily amounts of food using the feeder as a measure for the days you will be away, including food for one or two extra days just in case. It’s also advisable to bring a water bottle and keep it handy in the vehicle.

If the journey is long and your dog is rather active, it’s important to bring something for their entertainment. A good idea is to bring one or two of their toys, preferably the oldest or most worn ones, as they can easily get lost during transportation.

t may also be that during the getaway, you plan to visit countryside, forest, mountain, or beach areas, and as you know, our furry friends are experts at enjoying nature. Therefore, we recommend that you bring along a jacket or raincoat and a towel that you no longer use or don’t have much attachment to, so you can clean your dog before getting into your vehicle.

A first aid kit is always a must-have to keep in your vehicle, but it’s also advisable to get one specifically for pets.

You can find it at pet stores or veterinary centers.

And of course, your Travel Fix Harness, essential for protecting the family, preventing injuries to your dog in the event of an accident or sudden braking, and increasing survival chances. Also, don’t forget the leash and walking harness.

Here's a list of what you should pack in your dog's bag,
and don't forget anything:

in their travel space

Sometimes, owners who want to maximize their vehicle’s dimensions carry their pets in a small space shared with suitcases, bags, and other heavy objects.

Firstly, for your safety and that of all passengers, loose luggage shouldn’t be carried on the seats. Additionally, it can cause discomfort, anxiety, and make the journey stressful for your pet, as well as distract the driver.

Often, even though we know it’s not recommended, we try to make the journey to our destination without making a single stop.

We want to remind you that it’s crucial for the driver to make regular rest stops to prevent fatigue during the journey. Also, if you’re traveling with pets, it’s important to make necessary stops so they can drink water, stretch their legs, and attend to their needs.

We hope these tips have been helpful, though we have one last piece of advice to make your journey with your pets perfect.

Disconnect and enjoy your time together to the fullest!
