Dog is My Co-Pilot: Tips for Taking a Road Trip Alone with Your Furkid | Lifestyles

Pack your car comfortably

Make a thoughtful list of everything you will need and remember that digging for new snacks or supplies with your pet will be challenging. Arrange the space in your car so that everything you need for your pet is easily accessible when needed, including travel bowls, treats, garbage bags, medicines, leashes, first aid kits, toys, and blankets.

Potty breaks

Fulfilling Rover’s potty needs is simple: go to the nearest rest stop and make sure you have garbage bags and supplies on hand to clean up after him.

However, managing your own potty breaks is a little more complicated. Pets should not be left alone in the car. So what can you do when nature calls? Find a pet friendly business and make use of the bathroom. Pet stores like Petco and PetSmart, as well as pet-friendly hotel chains like Red Roof Inn, La Quinta, and Motel 6, can share their facilities with your pet.
