Although the end of summer is fast approaching, there’s still plenty of time for a little road trip. If you’re anything like me, that means packing for both yourself and your mutt.
Traveling with pets, especially dogs, is so much easier when we’re prepared. I have a tendency to over-pack for myself (because you just never know what you might need, right?!), but when it comes to packing for my dogs, I’ve learned to anticipate what we’ll need and what can stay at home. It definitely makes getting ready for a road trip with dogs just a bit easier.
