Before you take your dog for a ride, you want to prepare the necessities. One of the first things you will want to do is to make sure your dog is wearing its collar or has a means of being identified. You will also want to bring a drinking dish and water with you so you can keep your furry friend hydrated at all times. To make clean-up after the outing easier, covering the seats with a blanket or sheet is a good way to catch any hair your dog sheds.

Prior to embarking on your journey, it is a good idea to exercise your dog as well. This could be a long walk or a game of fetch. In doing so, you can reduce hyperactivity. If your dog is the nervous type, you can spray pheromones for a calming effect or play classical music which is scientifically proven to reduce anxiety! Then, while you are on the go, remember to keep the temperature in your car reasonable so that the cabin is neither too cold nor too hot.

These are just some of the ways you can have a pleasant driving experience with your pup!
