Summer Travel Safety Tips

Summer is officially here! 
Days are longer, the air is warmer, and the travel itch has begun. For many pet parents, a vacation is no fun unless their four-legged family members can come along. While traveling can be stressful for all, nothing can ruin an adventure across the country more than being unprepared. If your customers are planning to take a trip with pets in tow, we have a few tips to ensure a safe and comfortable journey for everyone.

Traveling with a pet by car involves more than just loading the animal in the back seat and motoring off, especially if you will be driving long distances or plan to be away for a long time. Here are a few car travel safety tips to help you prepare for a smooth and safe trip.
• Prep your pet for a long trip. Get your pet geared up by taking him on a series of short drives first, gradually lengthening time spent in the car.
• Keep your pets safe and secure in a well-ventilated crate or carrier. The crate should be large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. Secure your pet’s crate so it will not slide or shift in the event of an abrupt stop.
• Prep a pet-friendly travel kit. Bring food, a bowl, leash, a waste scoop, plastic bags, grooming supplies, medication and first-aid, and any travel documents. Pack a favorite toy or pillow to give your pet a sense of familiarity.
