Going on Vacay with your Puppay? Tips to make it the best ever!
This is the time of year that many of us head out on road trips. If you’re bringing your pup along for the ride, we’ve got a few tips that can help make it a fun experience for the entire family. First up in this series is packing the right food and treats. Here are our suggestions:
If you feed kibble, package the food in serving sizes. For example, if your dog eats 1 cup of food per meal, measure out a cup of food and put it in either a small plastic bag or container. This will make it simple to feed your pup the right amount with dragging out a measuring cup or lugging a big bag of food with you on your trip.
If you feed a raw or freeze dried diet, the sample principle applies. Our freeze food bars make it simple to package up the correct serving quantity. For a raw diet that is sold in bulk, measure out the proper serving quantity and freeze in a plastic bag or container. I would recommend serving in that container if you pup will eat from it.
Pack your dog’s food bowl. Many dogs know their bowl and find comfort in things they are familiar with when in unfamiliar surroundings.
4. Treats – Why not include a Kong or other fillable chew toy to occupy your pup during the
drive? It will keep her happy and less likely to whine on the trip. Bring extra “fillings” so you can keep it interesting for the duration of the trip. Try to freeze these chew toys. It will keep your pup occupied for a longer time and will also introduce more water into their system. Staying hydrated will be very important during your road trip.
5. Poop bags – Be sure to have an ample supply with you. Nothing worse than a traveler that “goes” and then leaves. Yuck.
