November is the beginning of the holiday season, which means more people are going to be travelling, and those trips often include pets. The American Kennel Club offers the following trip tips to make travelling with your dog enjoyable:
Get the paperwork together:
For long trips, you should carry a recent photo of your dog and a copy of his health records, listing all of his recent vaccinations.
See the vet:
Bring your dog to the veterinarian for a checkup before going on an extended trip. Make sure all his vaccinations are up to date, and take shot records with you.
Bring games and toys:
To make sure your dog doesn’t get bored, provide him with a few new toys and a couple of old favourites. You might want to include a puzzle-type toy to keep him occupied.
