The weather is warming up, and I don’t know about you, but I get a serious case of wanderlust in the springtime! Nice weather makes me want to drive with the windows down, blast the stereo, and hit the open road. Road trips can be a great adventure for you and your dog. I personally love taking my dogs with me on grand adventures and sharing the experience with them. Seeing them run on the beach, smell the flowers, hike up mountains.. it all makes the experience just that much sweeter having them along for the ride.
We’ve taken the pups on LOTS of road trips over the years and the WORST thing you can do is forget something important. Frantically searching for a pet store in a strange place is an adventure, but probably not the kind you’re looking for.
So, here is our tried and true Dog Road Trip Essentials Checklist Printable. Save it, print it, and never have that sinking feeling in your gut when you leave the house again, worrying that you forgot something important for your pooch. Not included in this list are items specific to the needs of your individual pet, like medications, calming treats, puppy pads, etc. Depending on where you’re going, you’ll need to add some destination specific items as well, but this will cover you for the ride there.
What every dog parent needs for a road trip with their dog…
