Flying isn’t the only way to travel when going on vacation. Road trips are just as much fun. To see how your pet will handle riding in a car, start preparing them with short rides. You will be able to gauge how well your pet can handle riding in a vehicle and if they even like it. If they do, then you know a vacation road trip with your furry friend is possible.
Keep things like your pet’s bedding, favorite toys, and other items from home with your pet in the vehicle. It will help them relax because they smell home. Also, plan on taking breaks, not just for yourself, but also for your pet. Always put their leash on them before opening the car door. If you’re traveling with a cat, make sure they have access to a litter box instead of taking them out of the vehicle. You can purchase disposable litter boxes to make this easier.
And never leave your pet alone in your vehicle no matter the weather. Car interiors get hot quickly.
