Accessories for Traveling with Your Pet

Help your pet stay safe just like you and the rest of your family when you travel with a little bit of accessorizing.
• You wouldn’t allow your child to roam around a moving vehicle. For the same reasons, you should have some sort of restraint on your pets.
o Pet barriers are probably the most comfortable for your pet. They allow them to move around a little but still keep them secured in the back of the vehicle. They work best in SUVs with a fairly large cargo area.
o Other options include pet carriers and pet harnesses. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/lifestyle/2014/04/how-safe-are-car-seat-harnesses-for-your-dog/
• When planning a trip, you pack a bag based on what you’ll need. What items will your pet require on the trip?
o Pet Travel Bag helps you keep everything together and organized.
o Water, food, and bowls. Consider the spill proof, collapsible bowls. They take less room and make less of a mess.
• Your vehicle is just a means of transportation. What will you need when the vehicle stops?
o Never assume your pet will be as welcome as your are. Call before you bring a pet with you to stay overnight. Check online for pet friendly hotels.
o Collars that light-up or are reflective help you keep track of your pet when getting in and out of the car.
o Don’t forget grooming supplies, clean up tools and toys will be helpful.
