      Is Your Dog Ready To Travel When Disaster Strikes?

      Pet, Is Your Dog Ready To Travel When Disaster Strikes?

      Is Your Dog Ready to Travel When Disaster Strikes?

      It has been a crazy summer of devastating hurricanes, flooding, fires and other disasters. Is your dog prepared to weather the storm? 

      As someone who competes in a variety of canine sports with my dogs - I'm pretty well prepared for long distance, overnight travel with more than one dog.  However, most people are not ready to travel on a long trip, on short notice with one or more dogs.  I wrote this a few years back after being just heartbroken by what I saw out on the road when we were evacuating for a hurricane.  Give it a read, and take some time to get yourself prepared NOW - when you aren't in the middle of an emergency.  Your dog will thank you for it!

      We had just spent a week on the road with our three dogs after being evacuated for Hurricane Irma in the fall of 2017.   It was extremely stressful and full of anxiety for us and our dogs. I felt prepared and ready to keep my dogs as calm as possible under the circumstances. Sadly, as we crawled down the highway in bumper to bumper traffic, it became clear that many dog owners were just not prepared to travel in an emergency with their dog.

      There are a lot of logistics to consider when you take a road trip with your dog that involves long distance and overnight stays. Throw in a mandatory evacuation or other emergency and the stress that both you and your dog experience can go way up.

      Here are my best tips for having your dog travel ready (emergency or not):
