                                                     Travel Tip for You and Your Puppy

Traveling by Car

  1. Make certain you bring adequate food and water. It is a good idea to bring more than you think you will need to insure there is adequate supply in case your trip is unexpectedly extended.
  2. Make certain your dogs' nametag is up to date and bring along a photograph. Both of these can be extremely valuable should your pet accidentally get lost while taking a break or at your final destination.
  3. Avoid traveling with your pet while he/she has a full stomach. Motion sickness is less likely on an empty stomach. On longer trips, feed a smaller amount than normal.
  4. Never leave your dog in a hot car. Many people believe that simply leaving the windows partially down provides adequate relief for the pet. In extreme temperatures the heat can cause injury and death.
  5. When planning your trip, plan for your pet by calling ahead. Make certain your pet will be welcome wherever you go.
  6. Visit your veterinarian and obtain a health certificate for your pet. Carry this certificate with you and make certain it meets the requirements of the state or country in which you are traveling.
  7. Remember to pack a leash and tie-out, and stop often so your dog can relieve themselves.
  8. When possible, use a plastic or wire kennel to restrain your pet for the best safety for you and your pet.
  9. Don't hesitate to call your vet for other tips and special advice.

  Traveling by Plane 

  1. Always call your airline in the city of your departure for specific pet travel guidelines. Airlines and airports have specific requirements so it is recommended you contact the ticket office in the city from which you are departing.
  2. Make certain your dogs' nametag is up to date and bring along a photograph. Both of these can be extremely valuable should your pet accidentally get lost in the airport or at your final destination.
  3. Visit your veterinarian and obtain a health certificate for your pet. Carry this certificate with you and make certain it meets the requirements of the state or country in which you are traveling.
  4. When possible, choose a direct flight. This will greatly minimize the time your pet is out of your hands. If a direct flight is not possible, avoid using different airlines for your connections.
  5. Make your reservations in advance. Many airlines limit the number of pets on a flight.
  6. Choose airline approved pet carriers that provide excellent ventilation for improved pet comfort.
  7. Walk your dog just prior to boarding and immediately after arriving at your destination.
  8. Don't hesitate to call your vet for other tips or special advice!
