Travelling With Your Pets
Cats are usually the hardest to travel with unless you have an exceptional cat. They need to be put in a smaller travelling cage but it needs to be large enough for a small litter box. They come in different sizes as do litter boxes. Unlike dogs that may bark or cry if they need to potty, cats cannot let you know when they need to potty. When you are travelling, you cannot just stop and let them out of the vehicle to do their business. So it is smart to use a larger cage to be able to fit a litter box, food and water dishes and a bed for them to lie on.
Dogs are a whole different story. Some owners do get smaller carrying cages for their smaller dogs. Also some owners who may show or do competition use cages to transport them. There are also wheels that you can buy to attach to your cage so that you can pull it instead of carrying it. These are fantastic for owners who do competition since usually you have to travel from your car to your designated spot.
When you travel with your dog, there are a few different options. If you have an SUV, they make a bed for them to lie in. Another option is to have a cage put in the back for them. Some owners use a car harness, where you hook them to the seat belt in the back seat. That way they can have the choice of taking a nap or watching out the window. Also that way they are close to you. If you just want your dog to be in the back seat but don't want them to try to come up to the front and distract you, they make a few different kinds of pet travel barriers which secures them in the back seat. Ones that just hook between two bucket seats and ones that are more like a fence that installs in seconds.It doesn't matter what type you choose to use as long as your pet is secure and safe. They will be much happier knowing you are looking out for their safety.
What ever the type of pet you have or how ever long your journey is, there are also accessories that you need to take. Always take a leash in case your vehicle breaks down and you need to walk somewhere. They make them for cats and dogs. Some owners prefer to use pet strollers. There are a variety of types to buy. You should take food and water bowls plus food and water to put in them. You need a poop scooper for your cats' litter box and poop bags for your dog. Cat and dog wipes are good in case there happens to be some kind of accident. Reflector leg bands are great for in the dark. If you need to walk late at night or maybe you like to go camping, these will help you keep up with your pet and make them more visible at night. If you are going to be staying over night or for more than one day, treats or bones and maybe toys to play with should be taken.
Where ever you go and whatever you do always remember to think of your pet and their needs as well as yours.
