  • First and foremost make sure your pets are protected for nasty bugs that will shorten your trip. Having Bug repellent sprays or even prevention products like Frontline, Advantage, Heartgard and Bio Spot is a must.
  • Have on hand TranQuil-Tabs, HomeoPet Anxiety, or Clomicalm to help relieve the stress if your pet gets car sick.

  • Whether you are driving or flying bring a Carriers and Kennels just in case of certain restriction that requires it. Transportation pet policies differ from company to company so be sure and check policy before planning your trip.
  • Have a pet bed or cushion to keep your pet comfortable and clam while traveling to make them feel like they're at home.
  • Water is always a necessity no matter the weather condition so having Lixit Dog Travel Water Bowl is perfect.

  • For those long road trips or windy days protect your dog's eyes from the wind, dust and UV rays with Doggles.
  • Have a leash or a muzzle with you at all times as pet policies in parks and beaches may vary.
  • While at your destination have your pet's favorite toy like the Bettie fetch toy or Rita ball which you can stuff treats in so that they can have fun and get some much needed exercise after a long trip.
