Suggested Pet Travel Supplies List and Kit:
Traveling with your pet over the holiday season doesn’t have to be stressful. ARL Iowa For Love of Dogs Author Paula Sunday shares her travel supply list to help you make sure you have everything a dog needs when traveling.
Be prepared with your own pet travel kit. A duffle or similar bag works great to keep their stuff all together.
- Pet’s food and treats. For trips, I like to portion food baggies so meals are easily fed. Don’t forget food! You might not be able to get the same kind where you are visiting. A sudden change of food can throw a dog’s tummy off. Not something you want happening.
- Water if applicable
- Bowls for both food and water.
- A few toys
- A few towels to wipe your pet’s feet when coming indoors from walks
- A comfy mat
- Your dog’s crate (if he is used to one). Even if you haven’t used the crate at home for a while, your dog will probably find it comfortable. It’s a quiet place for him to hang out.
- Collar with identification tags (any dog can get lost!) You can even purchase tags that you can customize with a local phone number for your dog to wear on the visit
