Traveling with Dogs: 10 Dogs Who Are Ready to Hit the Road

Traveling with Dogs: 11 Dogs Who Love Car Rides

There’s nothing quite like traveling with dogs. Most pooches love a good car ride spent with their cheeks flopping in the wind, their head bobbing up and down and a big toothy grin spread across their face.

While getting behind the wheel of a car might seem like a chore to you, to them, even a spin around the block is the adventure of a lifetime. And all it takes is five little words: “Wanna go for a ride?”

Here are 10 dogs who love riding in the car with their hoomans.

Use a Bright Colored Bandana On Your Dog During Hunting Season. Make sure both you & your dog stick out if you’re going to be out walking during hunting season. You can wear bright colors (orange is preferred), and you can help keep your dog safe by having them wear a bright orange bandana.

Limit treats to training rewards. This is an excellent way to make sure your dog views treats as special rather than expected. It’s also helpful in keeping your pet from becoming overweight or obese. Feed a species-appropriate diet, and partner with a holistic or integrative vet to maintain your pet’s well-being.

All of these doggos clearly love the car, and if your pup does too, never forget—safety first! Just as your body is protected from a potential accident with a seat belt, theirs should be, too. Keep your dog safe during car rides by getting the right supplies, like a seat-belt tether, a dog car seat or a dog carrier that can be securely stowed.
