Remember to keep your crate securely fashioned to the seat.
DO be sure your dog takes a crap before leaving! About two hours into a drive once upon a time, JoJo turns her ass towards the front of the crate...and...lets just say there was a whole lot of cursing coming from my mouth! Sometimes you just get caught up in packing...etc, and forget about your dog!
DON'T feed your dog before the trip. Although, we’ve never had any problems with this, its a good precaution in case your dog is a travel puker.
DO bring lots of water. Obviously in hot summer months, you and your dog don’t want to be stranded without water. Brachiocephalic dogs especially are susceptible to heat. We usually bring a spray bottle along to keep her cool in the summer.
DO bring your dog's fav toy or blanket
DO make a bathroom break every three hours. Mainly for the human passengers!
DON'Tput your dog in the back of your truck, free to roam around! I've seen this numerous times and it wouldn't take much more than a swerve to eject your dog. Seriously people.
I’m usually jealous when I glance over at JoJo, she’s snoozing in FIRST CLASS! That's how you travel with a dog.
