pet car survival kit




For many people, the dog is a member of the family. 

Our schnauzer Heidi (now in doggy heaven) was like that to us. When soccer Saturday rolled around, she was bundled into the minivan along with the duffle bags of sports stuff.

At the time, I didn't go for the doggy car seat, but today I've warmed to them.

They're a good idea if your dog tends to roam or jump around visiting the rest of the family members, seat by seat.

Yes, I know cats travel, too. But dogs are the more frequent travelers. I've yet to see a family let Fluffy the cat bound out of the hatchback at soccer practice or baseball game.

Pet car essentials include:





Pet Car Essentials: Bags for Scooping Up Poop

I use earth-rated dog waste bags. They're designed to hold the smelly stuff safely and be earth friendly. But I think I really just like the lovely lavender scent. It totally beats the alternative.

A Leash For Each Pet

Your pet car survival kit should include a leash for each pet. This may seem like a "duh," but often dashing out the door you or the kids might forget it in a rush.

By having a "spare" or second leash already in the car, there's less to think about in a rush to get out the door to soccer practice.

Dog (or Cat) Chow

Sometimes, your errands or carpool might take longer than expected; be prepared, so your hungry animal doesn't get restless or loud (barking comes to mind here).

If you're unsure whether there will be a faucet or hose nearby your destination(s), consider including a water bottle in your car kit.

Water and Food Bowls

They needn't be fancy - even a plastic picnic-style dish will do. In a pinch, it's nice to know you don't have to consider whether your destination(s) will have pet-friendly feeding or watering areas.
