Do you want to take your pet along with you when you are traveling for a business trip? Well, if your answer is yes then I don’t think there will be any problem.

Dog Travel Car Tips
Here are some important tips that you must follow if you are taking care of your dog in the car:
Keep him away from the gear stick
Most of the dogs love to chew things and the gear stick is one of the items which they love to chew. Make sure you keep your dog away from the gear stick.
Clean the area around the gear stick
When you are traveling with your dog in the car, there will be certain situations when you will stop the car and get out of the car. During these situations, your dog will also get out of the car and explore the surrounding area. So, make sure you clean the area around the gear stick after every trip so that your dog does not have any reason to chew anything.
Keep him occupied
Dogs love to chew things and when they are bored they tend to create problems for themselves. So, make sure you keep him occupied while traveling in the car. You can buy him some puzzle toys or balls which he can play with during the journey. This will keep him happy and occupied.
Give him water
When you are traveling you don’t have the option of bringing the dog’s water bottle along with you, but you can take it from the hotel room. If it is not allowed then you should ask the hotel staff to provide you water in some other way.
Dogs need a lot of water to stay healthy and remain active. They lose a lot of water through their breathing and panting. Make sure you give your dog at least 1-1/2 to 2 litres of water every day. This will help him to remain healthy and active.
Use a quality travel bowl
Dogs are very smart and if they sense that you are feeding them from a garbage bag or a plastic bag then they will not eat from you. Use a quality travel bowl which is made of stainless steel or ceramic. This will prevent your dog from throwing up everything that he eats in the car.
Keep your dog inside the vehicle
It is one of the best tips for traveling, as you will be able to keep your dog safe and it won’t be able to run around and do its business on the road. Also, your dog won’t be able to get into an accident and this will save your dog from any kind of injury.
Bring your dog’s carrier
I know that most of the dog owners don’t like carrying their dog in their hands while they are traveling for a long journey, but this will make sure that your dog is safe and comfortable.
Your pet is your companion
When you are traveling for a business trip and you are going to meet clients in a new place, you need to be with a happy and calm dog, as it will help you to make a good impression on your clients.
