|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.
