Our Top Dog Travel Tips If You Want to Jet Set With Your Pet

Whether you're taking a road vacation, flying somewhere far, or hiking with your dog, here's everything you need to know to make your trip as seamless as possible.  

Your first stop is always the vet. Check your dog's vaccines and discuss travel health issues.  

If traveling internationally, get health certifications and copies of your dog's medical records.  

Next, start introducing your dog to their travel carrier or new gear early. To build a pleasant association, put their favorite blanket or toy inside.

If you plan to drive or fly, practice short, joyful excursions in the car or near the carrier at home, gradually increasing their time inside.  

To avoid stomach troubles, bring their regular food, a spill-proof water dish, leash, harness, waste bags, grooming tools, and a pet-friendly first-aid kit.  

Traveling by car? Secure your dog in a crash-tested dog carrier or vehicle restraint strap.
