Traveling Tips for Driving with your Dog

Road trips are extra fun when you bring your best friend along for the trip! More and more Americans are taking dog-friendly vacations, and that often requires a lot of travel time with your dog. All dogs are different; some of them love the car where others can’t stand taking a ride. Either way, if you are taking multi-hour road trip, it is most likely the longest trip your dog has taken. While this might seem like a nightmare for some dog owners, there are a few simple tips you can follow that will help dogs have the best experience on their ride.

First off, you are going to want to use a crate for your dog on the trip. Crates are the easiest and safest way to travel with a dog. They keep the dog separated from the driver and helps the dog feel safe. If your dog is not used to being inside a crate, we recommend that you get your dog used to the crate for a couple weeks in advance. Your dog will be much more comfortable if they are used to the crate. Before letting your dog into the crate before the ride, take them for a walk to burn off some energy. This will help them relax once they are in the crate.

While traveling with your dog, do not feed them too much or too often as they may get motion sickness. Stop every couple hours to let your dog stretch their legs, drink water, and have a small snack.

And of course, never leave your dog in an unattended car. Even with the windows cracked, your car quickly becomes an oven that will cause your dog to become dehydrated.

How to drive efficiently to get the best gas mileage possible

There are many simple changes you can make to your driving habits to improve your fuel efficiency. Use these tips to lower your gas consumption without making any changes to your vehicle.

Drive with control and patience. Driving over the speed limit and braking often wastes fuel. Conservative driving habits such as staying under the speed limit and slowing down in advance of stop signs will help you save gas. Switching between quick acceleration and hard braking is a great way to use gas fast.

Avoid vehicle idling for too long. Cars these days do not need excessive amounts of idle time before they are ready to drive. Even in the winter you do not need to let your car warm up for longer than 30 seconds.

Keep your speed steady and consistent. Dips in speed lead to rapid accelerations that increases fuel consumption. To help out with this on the highway, use your car’s cruise control.

Plan out your movements and actions as far in advance as possible to keep up your car’s momentum. Come to very slow stops so that you make use of your car’s momentum without resorting to hard braking. Keep your eyes peeled for any upcoming obstacles so that you can start coming to a stop well in advance.

Accelerate slowly to full speed. Rapid accelerating uses more fuel than a slow acceleration that takes several seconds.

Everyone is trying to save money on gas. Use these tips to improve your vehicle’s gas consumption.
