Get your pup a checkup before you go 

Before you hit the road on your next adventure with your furry friend, make sure to get them a checkup. This is a great time to ensure that their vaccinations are all up to date and that they’re in good overall health.

While you’re at it, why not ask the vet if there are any other preventative measures you should be taking to keep your pup in tip-top shape. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and your pup will thank you for it in the long run. Plus, with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your pup is healthy and protected, you can focus on making memories with your four-legged companion by your side.

Put together a travel kit for your pet 

One of our top travel tips for dog owners going on a road trip? Don’t forget to pack a travel kit for your floofer! It’s important to make sure your pet has everything he or she needs to stay happy and healthy while on the go.

Pack up some of their favourite treats, toys, and don’t forget their medications if they need it. It’s not uncommon for pooches to get poorly tums when travelling so if you’re travelling to an area that’s not familiar to your dog, it’s best to bring along some first aid supplies just in case.

A great addition to this kit is doggy diarrhoea relief such as Buddy & Lola’s Super Tummy Instant. If your pooch is renowned for eating things they shouldn’t, either on walks or from counter surfing, or if they get stressed easily and end up with runny poops then having a fast acting solution on hand is an absolute must. Plus this particular tummy relief liquid contains added electrolytes which are perfect for keeping your furry friend hydrated during warmer weather. So, grab your pet’s food, water, and travel essentials and hit the road!

Keep your dog safe and relaxed when travelling by car 

Taking your pooch on a road trip can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to keep them safe during the journey. One way to ensure their safety is to invest in a dog seat belt or harness. This will not only keep them secure in the event of an accident, but also prevent them from being a distraction to the driver.

Additionally, it’s important to make sure they have access to fresh air. Crack a window or invest in a car window screen to give them the chance to feel the breeze on their face.

It’s also important to keep your dog as calm as possible, both for their wellbeing and your safety when driving so there are as few distractions as possible. If they need a bit of extra help to stop them being as anxious then you can always try a calming supplement such as Peaceful Pooch. This is full of natural ingredients to help ease your dog’s stress and anxiety without making them sleepy and all you need to do is add the powder to their food each day and you’ll start to see the difference it can make.

Plan rest stops ahead of time

If you’re planning a road trip with your furry friend, it’s important to plan ahead and identify areas where you can stop for rest breaks. Let’s be real, no one wants to be stuck on a long drive with a dog that needs to go to the toilet ASAP. That’s why it’s a good idea to check out rest areas or parks along your route before you hit the road. Not only will it make your pet more comfortable, but taking a break to stretch your own legs and breathe in some fresh air can make a big difference in your own mood and energy levels. Plus, who doesn’t love a good scenic rest stop photo op?

Research the local area in advance 

Before embarking on your next adventure with your furry friend, it’s important to make sure you research the area you’re travelling to in advance. The last thing you want is to arrive at your destination with your dog, only to find out there are restrictions on dog owners that you weren’t aware of. There’s nothing worse than going to a beach hoping to let your dog have a nice run around to find that actually that beach doesn’t allow dogs at that time of year, or even at all. It is especially important to do your research if you are travelling abroad with your pooch as there may be different laws in different countries around where dogs can go. By taking the time to check these restrictions beforehand, you can plan accordingly and ensure a stress-free journey for both you and your pet. So do your due diligence and avoid any unwanted surprises by researching local laws in advance!

Final thoughts

Travelling with a pup can be both exciting and extremely stressful. By following the tips above, you can help ensure that your pup is happy and healthy before, during, and after their travels. It’s important to remember to visit the vet and get any necessary check ups or vaccinations so that your pup is protected from unpredictable diseases and viruses when on the move. Also, make sure to look ahead for any restrictions or regulations that may be in place in your destination city/country so that you are aware of what supplies to bring as well as any laws you’ll need to abide by while travelling.

Most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy the journey with your beloved dog! Have fun exploring new places together and creating beautiful memories wherever your pup takes you.
