Before you leave:

Traveling can be a traumatic experience for your dog.
Bring a few of his favorite toys and blankets.

Plan bathroom breaks.

Be especially careful at rest areas, which can pose all sorts of hazards.

Supplies to remember:
•Flat collar, with ID tags for both his home address and any temporary address you might be using.
•Leash
•Paper towels and disinfect (in case of an “incident”)
•Windshield cover, to keep your car cool during stops
•Towels, to clean up mud
•Plastic bags, to clean up during visits to town
•Water bottle and collapsible bowl
•Any medications your dog is on with current prescriptions, so you don’t run out on the road.
