Trucking With Your Dog
Being on the open road can be lonely and having a pet along with you can make the trip much more enjoyable. Trucking with your dog can make your time on the road fly by.
Do you have a sidekick in your truck while on the road?
If so, you are one of the 40% of drivers that take their pet on the road with them. Having a pet, especially a dog, with you has many mental benefits such as lower stress levels, reduce depression, and boosting your immune system. And best of all a pet provides companionship. Having a dog with you could also help with your physical health since dogs require frequent bathroom breaks and they enjoy walks.
Here are a few things you can bring along to make the trip more comfortable for your pet when you hit the road:
- Bring food and water (along with their bowls)
- Blanket or bed to remind them of home.
- Don’t forget the leash, harness, collar, and extra dog-poop bags
- Dog toys to them entertained.
While traveling, keep your pet safe by creating a safe environment. Having your best friend and companion with you when you’re on the road makes the trip more enjoyable. Trucking with your dog has positive benefits for both you and your dog!
