Traveling with your dog may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are few basic guidelines that make bringing your pooch a whole lot easier, for them and for you.

Ever see a family with young children traveling, either in the airport or at a rest area? They have a TON of stuff. The carseat, the stroller, the pack-n-play, all of the diaper bags, and oh, snacks! Don’t forget snacks. Well, it’s kind of the same when you travel with your canine, but if you plan ahead and have the right supplies, it can go smoothly!

Dogs. Dogs are great, aren’t they? There’s nothing quite like coming home to that wet nose and wagging tail greeting you at the door. They are widely known for their unmatched companionship and loyalty. I could ramble on for hours about the benefits of dog ownership, but because this is my first entry, I will spare you. Considering all of this, it shouldn’t be a surprise that dog ownership is becoming more and more popular. In fact, if you look up and read some demographic and statistical reports of pet ownership online, it’s estimated that about 40% of Americans have dogs! That’s a lot of dogs. Moreover, word on the street is that millennials are jumping on board the dog-wagon. And if they aren’t already on board, they plan to be in the near future.

It seems as though getting a dog is one of the first steps in what we refer to today as “adulting”. You assume responsibility for his/her daily care, training, medical needs, happiness and well-being. They become part of the family, our loyal companions, and in some cases, our “children” before children.
