Do you travel with your dogs? We definitely travel with Sunny in car trips – we haven’t worked up to flying yet. She’s a still a little nervous in new places even though we adopted her from the rescue over a year ago – I’m pretty sure a trip in the baggage compartment of a plane would make her a nervous wreck. But car trips are perfect for her, and when we purchase our next car, we will take a look at a Subaru, like the dogs in this video did…check it out, it’s pretty funny!
Sunny is definitely a pro in the car at this point, but here are a few tips that we follow to make sure that her trips are successful.
* Take your dog to places besides the vet, the groomer’s or boarding kennel. We take Sunny all kinds of places, whether it be on a longer trip, or just a trip out to the barn, horse shows, etc. But we never have to fight her to get in the car because most places we go are pretty fun!
* Bring your dog’s crate on long trips. This is a life saver for hotels, and dogs are safer if they are crated or harnessed while driving. Buckle up!
* Stop for breaks. But be careful about feeding your dog before you leave until you know if they get motion sickness. You don’t want to be cleaning THAT up.
Make sure that when you are using Subaru’s Facebook App that you use a fake address.! While Sunny is a New Yorker, we don’t live in Woofersville, although that sounds like a pretty cool place! Plus, you don’t want all of your dogs party animal friends to get your address of Facebook and show up at your house!
While you’re there, make sure you check out their other cool features such as Ask an Expert (Subaru live experts will answer your burning questions), Put Your Dog in a Subaru, and a Dog Matchmaker. And of course, the Dog Driver’s License Creator!
