Traveling with Your Pup this Summer?

If you’re like most people, summer vacation is a tradition you love to indulge in each year. But if you’ve just gotten a new puppy and want to take him along for the ride, be sure that you’re keeping him happy, safe, and healthy with these easy travel tips:

  1. Make sure your dog is wearing his proper ID tags at all times. His collar should have your immediate contact info or a microchip.

  2. Stash a copy of your dog’s current health and immunization records into your glove box or suitcase in case something should happen.

  3. Be sure to read the fine print of your hotel’s pet policy. Some hotels charge additional pet fees and deposits, some refundable, some not – or they many not even allow pets at all.

  4. If you’re traveling by car, be sure that you’re taking frequent potty breaks for your puppy. If your dog has never tried going while on a leash, be sure to train your dog to do his business that way also.

  5. If you’re traveling by plane, check with the airline to see the pet policy and what accommodations can be made. Also be sure to give your pup a potty break before and after the plane ride.
