1. Feed your dog a few hours before you leave and wait a couple of hours after you arrive at your destination to ensure that your dog's tummy will enjoy the trip. Food should be easily digestible and healthy, like Nature's Logic.
2. Dogs like to have familiar things around them so be sure to bring them their comfort foods, treats and toys to remind them of home. Pack a separate bag with your dog's goodies, food, treats, portable bowls, toys, bones, pillows, blankets, pet waste bags, and other paraphernalia.
