Maya Go-Tech Dog Seat Belt Journey

Are you about the em’bark’ on a journey with your dog? The #DogTravelAdvisor recommends the following safety items you should bring for your best pal:
* If traveling by car, your dog’s seat belt or pet carrier
* ID tags secured on your dog’s collar)
* Vet information
* Emergency contact information
* Photo of your pet
* Pet first aid kit
* Food and water
* Leash
* Blanket
* Your pet’s medication, including Travel Calm or other car sickness remedies

In addition to the above pet safety essentials, here are some non-essential, but probably-a-good-idea-to-bring-anyway, things:
* Toys
* Treats
* Dog bed
* Food and water bowls
* Dog brush
* Poo bags
* Baby wipes (for other doggie messes)
* Lint brush for dog hair clean-up

One time when we traveled, we forgot our dogs’ food! We left it by the door but forgot to put it in our car. Thankfully, we were able to find their regular brand at a store along the way. Have you ever forgotten to bring something when you traveled with your dog?

    Good call on the vet info. I never do that.

    Maybe a reminder for cat owners would be to make sure they also have a harness or collar on with tags and also to have a carrier plus a leash for each cat.

    And the baby wipes or some other way to clean up messes … that is a must! One time one of my cats got majorly car sick and we had nothing to clean it up! I will never make that mistake again!

    Good information here! I am actually working on a “traveling with pets” post, and I have to admit that you included a few things I hadn’t even thought of! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
