For some, to travel with their pet is a logistical nightmare. Even going to the mall can be going to hell. But that can change. To travel or transporting your pet from home to destination with a purpose can be easy if you are prepared. In this Travel in Style Series, we’ll show some scenarios where you will travel prepared with your pet.
Let’s start with the basic.
The Basic Travel Set
Water and Bowl – must keep our babies hydrated. You have an option of bringing a bowl and water bottle or you can bring the doggy bottle that has a catch tray with it.
Treats – It’s hard to feed your pet out in the mall. For one thing, they might make a mess you might not want to clean up. Take treats with you just to tide them over until you guys get home. Treats will also be used to control their behavior.
Poopie Kit – Never go out without this. Practice Petiquette and bring a poop clean up kit even when you go jogging. Chances are, your pets will make a doodie just for kicks!
1st Aid Kit for dog – in cases of emergency, bring the basics until you can rush to the vet: bandage, betadine, cotton, wet wipes and tweezer.
1st Aid kit for you – You might get hurt too so you should be prepared. A dog or cat can scratch or accidentally bite you. Have this for your kit: a tie or strip of fabric as tourniquet, band aid, alcohol or alcogel.
Towel – A towel can serve as a towel to wipe things or as your pet’s blanket if they feel cold.
