|7 Things to Know |
Before Traveling With Your Dog
I have been traveling with my dogs for over 40 years. I have taken them to lakes, oceans, mountains & campgrounds. We have stayed in hotels, beach houses, and many different types of RV's. We have traveled with one, to as many as five, dogs at a time. Actually for the past two years, it's been five. As I am writing this post, we are in route to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in our motorhome.

Why Do I Love Traveling With My Dogs?
➜I know they are being cared for properly.
➜I know they are eating & are not on a hunger strike.
➜I don't keep having that feeling that "something is missing".
➜You have more money to spend since you won't be paying for kenneling and in my case that would be big bucks for five dogs.
➜You don't have to work your departure and return time around the kennel's hours.
➜I always have my sweet teddy bears to love on and cuddle with.
I wanted to offer some ideas to those of you who have never traveled with your dog(s) and are thinking about it. For those of you that do travel with yours, maybe I will share something you can use too.
