1. Before Traveling
Make sure that you have your dog checked by the veterinarian to assure that your furry friend is healthy. His vaccinations are up to date, and you should get his records in case you need to show it to officials. Also, purchase any medication needed and identification, from travel documents, tags, or even consider a microchip for a permanent form of identification. Make sure that you pack the proper dog food and other accessories he may need for comfort and safety.
2. Investing In Good Crates
Whether you’re traveling by car or plane, it’s best to invest in a good crate to keep your dog in one place but still comfortable. The crate should be big enough for your dog to stand, sit, or lie down in. It should also be leak-proof and strong enough, with the proper grip and walls. Ensure ventilation and that there are food and comfortable mats inside, as well as his favorite toys.

Your dog may feel agitated before the travel, so make sure that he is well-hydrated but on an empty stomach to avoid air or car sickness. Let him get used to the ride by driving him around a few times. Train him to be well-behaved and always clean up after him if ever he makes a mess. Be considerate of others while traveling!
