Frequently Asked Questions

What type of dog food and water bowl is best for travel?

Spill-proof dog food and water bowls are best for car travel, and when it’s time to travel by foot to a campsite or along a hiking trail, collapsible silicone bowls make the best choice.

What are the most important first aid items to pack for my dog?

A solid dog first aid kit for travel includes whatever might be needed during an emergency. Pack items for administering first aid in the field, as well as your dog’s medications, a copy of vet/vaccine records, and extra food and water. We suggest adding a ready-made dog first aid kit equipped with essential medical supplies like dressings, scissors, forceps, antibacterial wipes, cold packs, and a guidebook, to your dog’s emergency travel bag.

Should I bring a dog bed or blanket for travel?

Always bring a bed or blanket for your dog when you travel. Having something cozy and familiar for her to sleep on helps ease anxieties and keeps her comfortable.

What types of toys and treats should I pack for road trips with my dog?

Pack the toys and treats that are already her favorites for a road trip with your dog. New treats might not agree with her stomach during car travel, which nobody wants. Bring safe chew toys to keep her occupied or plushies for comfort, but (for your own sanity) refrain from squeaky toys until you reach your destination. Make sure you pack extra balls or flying discs for playtime if you plan to stop at any dog parks for exercise along the way.
