Tips for vacationing with your dog: Traveling by Car
Get your dog used to the car by letting him sit in it with you without leaving the driveway, and then going for short rides.
Avoid car sickness by letting your dog travel on an empty stomach. However, make sure he has plenty of water at all times.
Keep the car well-ventilated. If the dog is in a crate, make sure that fresh air can flow into the crate.
Do not let your dog ride with his head sticking out of an open window. This can lead to eye injuries.
Never let your dog ride in the back of an open truck. This is extremely dangerous and can lead to severe injuries or death.
Stop frequently for exercise and potty breaks. Be sure to clean up after your dog.
Car rides are boring for everyone, so instruct your children not to tease or annoy the dog in the car.
Never, ever leave your dog unattended in a closed vehicle, particularly in the summer. See Summer Safety Tips for more information. If you must leave the car, designate a member of the family to stay with the dog.
