Now, let's talk about the fun stuff:
- Toys - just like kids, your pets are going to have a more enjoyable time when they have a few familiar goods to tote along with them. This can help promote healthier adjustment to a change of environment, regular exercise and overall fun!
- Treats - since dogs may be accustomed to a particular diet, don't be too enthusiastic about them becoming the next "Anthony Bourdain" of the canine world and try too many different goodies. Stick with what you know, they know and certainly never let them sample anything without knowing the ingredients. If you share simple snacks like safe fruits, vegetables and plain, clean foods, your dog will most likely continue to enjoy the trip. :) If you need a quick primer on safe foods for dogs, check out this nice and lovely site.
- Bed - Who doesn't prefer their favorite pillow or blanket when on the road? Given that most of these items are able to be collapsed or condensed, consider packing a small favorite sleep item for your pet to ensure their superior noses pick up the wonderful scent of home. Just like their human friends, pups need their beauty rest.
