Everyone loves to travel. Everyone loves to set off from home base and see the world. But what if… you have a dog?
If you’ve ever tried to travel with your dog, you’ll know it can be a complete and total pain. First, dogs really can’t take care of themselves, so it usually takes a whole lot of planning to really plan a trip with your pup.
What can make it even more difficult, though, is that there are rules for dogs everywhere. In the airport. On the train. In most cities. In basically every park you go to. Everywhere. And if you don’t know the rules, you might find yourself with a one-way ticket home.
For example, did you know that you’re required to arrive at least two hours before takeoff if you’re flying with a dog? It’s true. It’s a federal regulation. Or did you know that airlines can deny boarding to dogs who look too stressed out (especially if they’re aggressive)? These are just a few of the many rules you might need to know before getting on a plan with your pup.
Aside from the cold, hard rules, though there are lots of little hacks that can make traveling with a dog easier.
Here’s a quick one most people don’t think of: if you want to curb car sickness when taking your pooch on road trips, trying lining the seat of the car with a few familiar blankets, since, lots of times, dogs get car sick because they’re nervous, and being surrounded by familiar smells can call the little fur-balls down.
Below, you’ll find an infographic that compiles the essential stuff you need to know before making travel plans with your dog. If you want to read some more awesome doggy travel hacks, you can read the original article on dog travel at HerePup. Enjoy!
