5 Tips for Traveling with Your Dog

35 million Americans are expected to hit the road this Labor Day weekend and many will be bringing along their dog. So how can you pack up the whole family and also make sure that Fido has a happy, healthy, and tail-wagging good time?

The in-house canine behavioral experts at Milo's Kitchen — a popular All-American dog treat brand — are sharing their essential travel tips for the busy Labor Day weekend:

MILO'S KITCHEN LABOR DAY ROAD TRIP DOGGY - DO'S

DOGGY-DO #1: TAKE A JOY RIDE

Was your pup’s last 'road trip' a trip to the vet? Before your trip, take him on a short ride to the park to make the car a place where fun things happen, too.

DOGGY-DO #2: MAKE CRATE TIME 'TREAT TIME'

Make your dog's travel crate a happy place by doing a “test crating” and rewarding Fido with lots of his favorite treats. Soon, he'll be drooling when he crawls inside.

DOGGY-DO #3: PAMPER YOUR PUP

Just like humans, dogs feel most peaceful in a calming environment, so give your dog a back rub and
play soothing music while you're driving.

DOGGY-DO #4: BRING 'HOME' WITH YOU

Because dogs like familiarity, bring along their snuggly blankets and favorite toys. On arrival, set up your dog's crate and keep your feeding and walking routine.

DOGGY-DO #5: SPOIL THEM SILLY

While on a trip, it's even more important to reward your pup for good behavior. Treats build positive
associations with new sights and sounds.
