5 Travel Essentials For Your Dog

Traveling with your dog can be a lot of fun, but it's important to make sure that you pack the right items to keep them happy and safe. Here are five essentials that you won't want to leave behind:




1. A sturdy leash and collar for walks.


Whether you're hiking through the woods or taking a leisurely stroll around the block, it's important to have a good leash and collar that will keep your dog safe.


I also love this leash attachment from Kurgo that keeps your dog secure while in the car. It's here on Amazon.



Reduces distracted driving: keeps your dog restrained in the back seat & out of your lap while driving. For restraint only.



2. Plenty of food and water to last throughout the trip.
