Bring toys and treats
Keeping your pet entertained during a long journey can be tricky, so make sure you’ve stocked up on toys and treats. Bring their favourite toys from home along so that the environment is familiar for them.
Why not try a hollow chew toy filled with treats? It's like a surprise for your furry friend to keep them entertained.
Food is a crucial part of any road trip, even for your pooch. Trina at Wag the Dog UK shared some important advice: “Travelling is not the time to switch to different food for your pet. When I travel with Maggie, I put her wet food in single serving trays, freeze them and then pack them in a cool bag. Also one serving size of the food that your dog eats is better to keep while you are on the road.
“Remember some dogs do not travel well on a full stomach, so try to coordinate feeding and travel. I usually feed Maggie in the morning, then go for a long walk before hitting the open road."
When it comes to treats, there is so much choice for your pet. Billy + Margot, creators of the first ever ice cream specially designed for dogs, has an excellent range of delicious and nutritious snacks for your pet.
With Omega 3 rich oils, proteins and vitamin and mineral-rich ingredients, the range includes venison treats, popcorn for dogs, fish snacks and iced treats for sunny days.
For more meat treats, The Innocent Hound produces luxurious items as well as products targeting specific ailments. Treat your four-legged friend to venison sausages with chopped apple, turmeric and pepper treats for joint support and aniseed and citrus extract for dental support.
