10 Dog Travel Hacks That Will Transform Your Next Trip. 🐕👇

Traveling with a pup can be a bit of an undertaking. From packing your pet’s favorite toys to making sure they have enough food and water, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of ten dog travel hacks that will make your next trip much less stressful. So, let’s get started!

1. Pack Lightly: One of the most important things to remember when traveling with a pup is to pack lightly. Bring only the essentials for your pet such as their food, water, toys, and bedding. This will help keep your car organized, which is especially important if you’re traveling for an extended period of time.

2. Bring Extra Supplies: You never know what might happen on the road so it’s always wise to bring extra supplies just in case. Pack an extra bag of food and some treats into the side pockets of your Travel Couch in case your pup gets hungry along the way. It’s also smart to bring a few extra leashes and collars in case one breaks or gets lost during your travels.

3. Keep Your Pet Hydrated: Remember that dogs need more water than humans while on the road so make sure you stop frequently for potty breaks and offer them plenty of fresh water throughout the day. If you have access to filtered water, that would be even better!

4. Invest In A Sturdy Pet Seat: If you plan on driving with your pup in the passenger seat or backseat, investing in a booster seat like the Autopetz Travel Couch can make things just that extra bit SWEET, plus it is essential for safety reasons (and sometimes required by law). It ensures your furiend is safe and secure while providing them with enough room to move around safely if needed.

5. Choose Pet-Friendly Hotels: When searching for hotels or other accommodation options, always double check that they are pet friendly first! This will ensure that there are no surprises when you arrive at the hotel with your furry friend in tow.

6. Research Dog-Friendly Attractions In Advance: Before embarking on your trip, research any dog-friendly attractions in advance so you can plan accordingly. Many tourist destinations offer special events or activities specifically designed for dogs—so don’t miss out!

7. Choose The Right Car For Your Pup: If possible, choose a car that has plenty of room for both you and your pup because this will make traveling much easier—especially if you plan on taking long drives or camping trips together! Some cars even come equipped with built-in pet barriers which are perfect for keeping curious pups from roaming around too much during trips!

8 .Pack An Emergency Kit For Your Pet: Accidents happen when we least expect them—so it’s always wise to bring along an emergency kit just in case something goes wrong while on vacation with our pets! This kit should include items like gauze pads, tweezers (for tick removal), antiseptic wipes/spray, bandages/wraps and over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen (if approved by vet). If your pup is travelling in the Autopetz Travel Couch and have a toilet accident, all you have to do is remove the covers, give them a good wash and you're ready to go! 

9 .Bring Along Plenty Of Toys And Treats To Keep Them Busy On The Road: Dogs can get bored easily when traveling so make sure you have plenty of toys and treats to keep them occupied throughout the journey! Try bringing along some new toys that they haven't seen before as well as some old favorites—it'll provide hours of entertainment for everyone involved!

10 .Make Sure To Stop At Dog Parks Along The Way!: Finally—don't forget to take advantage of all the wonderful dog parks located throughout Australia! Taking regular stops at these parks gives both human travelers and furry companions alike a chance to stretch their legs after long hours spent in the car together! Plus—it's a great way for pooches to socialise with other dogs during their travels too :)

With these 10 hacks at hand, travelling with your pup should be a breeze from now on! Not only will these tips save time but they'll also help keep everyone safe during long trips away from home - whether it be across town or across country!. So don't forget - pack lightly (but wisely), stay hydrated, buckle up safely - oh - and don't forget plenty of fun toys & treats too!! Happy trails everyone!! ;)
